News

Cole has been left unprotected and thus can be picked in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft.

Impact

Cole has had great fortune since being traded to Pittsburgh from St. Louis in the 2014-15 campaign, winning two Stanley Cups while having the two best seasons of his career. That includes a five-goal, 26-point effort in 2016-17; he added 164 hits, 194 blocked shots and a plus-26 rating in the second defensive rotation. A big part of Cole's increased role was dependent on the fact that Kris Letang sat out for half the season, but let the stats speak for themselves -- he can be a legitimate two-way defenseman. The 28-year-old would only cost Vegas $2.1 million for the last year of his contract, making him a value option for the new club.
