"Well deserved recognition for Cole", commented Force GM, Cary Eades. "even though he was one of the youngest players in the league last season - he was only a junior in High School - Cole was one of our offensive leaders all year long. He also earned penalty kill time in the 2nd half of the year, and played in all key situations, as his all-around game continued to grow We're excited about his potential of being drafted by an NHL team in July, and we are thrilled to have #22 back in our line-up next season".
