The reality, though, is that he is a capable, useful winger. He's an effective forechecker, works diligently in his own end and is an integral member of what was the NHL's top penalty-killing unit last season.
Expect a slightly neutered Cooke this season following another controversial campaign full of cheap shots and checks from behind. Last season he scored 12 goals and 30 points through 67 games adding 129 PIM. He could be a useful player in deeper leagues although the PIM probably take a hit.
