Cole Status

Hey All,

Watched last night in Boston and saw Eric Cole helped off of the ice. I know Cole as a tough customer so I know it had to have been a serious injury. Anyone know his status?

But the Canes lost Cole midway through the second period when he collided with Glen Murray, sliding into Murray's right knee with his right hip -- a likely hip pointer, a painful contusion of the hip bone and the aggravation of a hip injury Cole has been playing through lately.

Walker missed the third period after injuring his right arm pummeling Andrew Alberts during a second-period scrap.

X-rays found no major injuries for both Hurricanes. They are expected to travel with the team to Minnesota today and be re-evaluated by doctors there. On Tuesday, the team lost Cory Stillman, who will miss at least a week with a sprained right knee.

Cole could be back as soon as the Wild game.... or he could be out more then a week. Totally day-to-day at this point.

My seat at the RBC is right beside the chute where the team goes on and off the ice, so I can see the expressions on their faces. Couple of weeks ago, Cole was helped into the dressing room holding his arm with a pained look that would make you think he had broken it in four places. I figured it was bad, but he was back out a couple of shifts later. Point being that sometimes these things look worse than they are. Hope that's the case here.

So I take it his hand isn't broken then? Any idea what his upper body injury was?

Sore knuckles. His hand was so swollen that they couldn't tell if it was just swollen or if there was some damage done until the xrays on Friday. Turns out it was just swollen and Walker has been taking care of it and looks ready to go. Pretty safe bet that he's not going to drop them again for a while. I can imagine that Laviolette probably gave him hell for that with our forward situation the way it is.

Cole has a reaggrivation of the hip pointer, which was the mysterious "lower body injury", that kept him out of a game earlier this season. He's for sure out for Saturday, but there is no set timetable for his return. Knowing Cole though, he's not going to miss too many games. I would expect him to be a GTD for the Kings game and likely back for the NYR game.

Heck, I don't even care. That was the the worst pwnage i've seen distributed from a Hurricanes perspective in quite a while.

Any updates on Cole's status? Did he practice today, is playing tomorrow at least a possibility?

Caniacforever, thanks for the update last saturday on Cole's status, I wonder if you could help me out again since I'm a big Cole fan but don't get much news on him in Vancouver...

Will he play Saturday vs. the Habs?

Thanks in advance if your able to pass anything on, it's appreciated

Cole skated before last night's game against NYR and said that it didn't feel right yet. He's going to likely be a GTD for the game against Montreal. My best estimate would be with the forward situation being the way it is, he may push himself back into the lineup early.
