Cole activated from IR after missing four games with neck injury
The Hurricanes are activating the 29-year-old winger from injured reserve and assigning Ryan Bayda to AHL Albany.
The veteran of six NHL seasons is less than two years removed from a serious neck injury. Cole fractured a vertebra on March 2006, when he was hit from behind by Pittsburgh's Brooks Orpik.
