Ian Cole is moving up the depth charts of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Cole was acquired from the St. Louis Blues at the trade deadline and it was thought at the time he was a sixth or seventh defenseman. But he has surprised many including coach Mike Johnson. "Ian Cole, to me, is a blend," Johnston said. "He defends well, and he does have some jump in his game. I don't consider him a true offensive defenseman. I think he's a little bit of a blend." Cole could see some power play time this season but for now the Penguins are going with four forwards and one defenseman with the man-advantage. Look for 25-30 points from Cole this season.
