He never averaged 14 minutes/game in any of his successful seasons. If you look at his icetime in his good seasons and bad seasons you'll notice he's best when playing 18+ (like he was in preseason).
You may also have noticed that Cole, for all his goodness, is not playing great though, so the low ice time is warranted so far.
