The Blue Jackets have acquired Ian Cole from the Senators for Nick Moutrey and a 2020 3rd Round Pick.

Cole was acquired in the Derick Brassard trade but was always expected to be flipped before the trade deadline. The 29-year-old can help on the offensive end and should slot in as a third-pairing defenseman with Columbus. He had 13 points (3G / 10A) in 47 games with the Penguins before his first trade.

Cole (mouth) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Cole has missed the last three games after taking a puck to the mouth vs. the Predators on October 7th. Cole has been cleared to play tonight, but it remains to be seen if he will actually draw into the lineup. The Penguins have listed him as a game-time decision so monitor his status as they hit the ice for warmups.
