Chicago Blackhawks At St. Louis Blues: Ian Cole Called Up, Set To Make Season Debut Tonight

Ian Cole was recalled from the Peoria Rivermen on Sunday night. It’s understandable how some fans could have missed this tidbit of information, what with some coach stuff going on or something. This means that the Blues have nine defensemen up, but with Kent Huskins out with a ankle injury since October 30th, and Nikita Nikitin and Taylor Chorney not filling the hole in the line-up well, Cole was next on the depth chart. He was one of the last cuts at the Blues’ training camp during preseason, and performed well during the preseason games.

In 26 games with the Blues last season – the last time the team had the injured defenseman bug – Cole had one goal, three assists, and was a +6. According to Louie Korac, he’ll be paired up with Roman Polak tonight, and the rest of the lines – at least for the start – will remain the same.
