Cole, a 36-year-old American, figures to be a physical addition to the Red Wings forward corps. More from's Ansar Khan:

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Cole plays an abrasive, physical style and has good offensive skills. He has 18 goals and 15 assists, along with a plus-4 rating, in 57 games this season. He also led the Stars with 116 hits. He had been playing right wing on the top line with Jason Spezza and Jamie Benn.

He is a rental, set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He has a $4.5 million salary-cap hit.

Zidlicky figures to be the big, right-handed shot the Wings have sought at the blue line.
