This is the exact same thing that happened with Samsonov. I'd be surprised if he was still here by december if JM keeps using him like this.

I don't think it's related to an injury even if that is a possibility, It seems simply like a case where the GM signed a player for a role but the coach has him pegged in a different role.
He hasn't been getting third line minutes on ES and he was on the second power play unit last year on a team with much less powerplay depth than Montreal. Kostitsyn, Pacioretty and maybe even Darche have a better history on the powerplay than Cole, that just isn't his strength.
