Cole was acquired for future considerations. He will wear number 10, and likely be in uniform for Wednesday's game at Green Bay.
Cole had two assists in 12 games with the Stars. The Anchorage, Alaska native is 5-9, 175 and is a 1992 birthdate, so this will be his final USHL season. Last year, he was the leading scorer for New Hampshire's Kimball Union Academy, with 29 goals and 51 points.
“He is a very competitive player with a great shot as well,” Ice head coach Kyle Wallack said in a team release. “In addition, his overall enthusiasm for the game will definitely help our program.”
The USHL also announced earlier this week that Ice forward Woody Hudson has been suspended for three games. Hudson was given a team-record 37 penalty minutes -- including two fighting majors, a third major for leaving the bench, and a double-game misconduct -- in the Ice's 4-2 loss to the Waterloo Black Hawks last Saturday night. Hudson will be out all three games this week and return for the Dec. 2-4 homestand against Dubuque and Green Bay.
