Red Wings Acquire Cole


The Red Wings have made their first move of the deadline weekend acquiring a veteran forward for the stretch drive.

The Dallas Stars have traded left winger Erik Cole and a 2015 third-round pick to the Detroit Red Wings for a 2015 second-round pick and two prospects, defenceman Mattias Backman and centre Mattas Janmark.

In 57 games with the Stars this season, Cole has scored 18 goals and totaled 33 points.

The 36-year-old is in the final year of a four-year contract worth an average annual value of $4.5 million.
