Nick Cousins has been called up by the Philadelphia Flyers.

This roster move was likely in response to the fact that Sean Couturier will miss the next four weeks with a lower-body injury. Cousins has 12 goals and 38 points in 38 AHL contests this season.
Feb 5 - 5:10 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that forward Nick Cousins was sent to the American Hockey League.

Philadelphia coach Dave Hakstol was impressed with call up Nick Cousins in training camp.

The Flyers need scoring and they recalled their third round pick in the 2011 Draft as he had 18 points in 15 AHL games. "I thought Nick picks things up very quickly," Hakstol said. "Nick makes a lot of little plays. What you want to see in your centerman is he is pretty patient inside the dots. He’s available in terms of breakouts and transition. He’s smart with that next play on our side of the red line and he is competitive as hell." Cousins was a plus-one in the Flyers win on Friday and could be a sneaky pickup in deeper leagues if he can stick with the big club.

The Philadelphia Flyers have summoned Nick Cousins.

Cousins will also be in the lineup for Philadelphia's contest on Friday, which starts at 3:30 p.m. ET. The hope is he might provide the offensively anemic Flyers with a boost as Cousins has five goals and 18 points in 15 AHL contests.

The Philadelphia Flyers have sent Nick Cousins to the minors.

The third round pick in 2010, Cousins played 11 games with the Flyers last season with nary a point. He did have 22 goals and 56 points in the AHL last season and will likely be recalled from the minors if he continues his offensive prowess. Robert Hag was also sent to the minors by the Flyers.

Nick Cousins logged 10:04 minutes in his NHL debut on Tuesday.

Cousins was credited with a shot on goal and a hit. "Fast game out there tonight and he looked like he had the pace for it," Flyers coach Craig Berube said of Cousins. "Competitive guy. Strong on the puck. He played a real solid game." Cousins has 21 goals and 55 points in 60 AHL games this season.

Nick Cousins will make his NHL debut on Tuesday night against the Vancouver Canucks.

When Cousins was called up to the Flyers on Sunday, he was leading AHL Lehigh Valley with 55 points and was also fifth in the league through 60 games.

Nick Cousins and Brandon Manning will be scratched on Sunday night against the Ottawa Senators.

The 21 year old rookie Cousins has yet to suit up for an NHL game, but that may be coming soon as he leads AHL Lehigh Valley with 55 points and was fifth in the league. Manning meanwhile has yet to make his mark through 14 sporadic games with just three points and 26 hits.

The Philadelphia Flyers have recalled Nick Cousins from the minors.

The Flyers needed a replacement for R.J. Umberger who is out for the season and Cousins got the call over Scott Laughton who has been up this season with Philadelphia. Cousins led Lehigh Valley with 55 points and was fifth in the AHL before his recall. He is also chippy as his 70 penalty minutes in 60 games will attest to.

Nick Cousins has only one goal in his last 26 games for the Adirondack Phantoms.

Cousins is playing in his first professional season and has 14 points this season in 51 games in the AHL after a 103 point season in the OHL in 2012-13. "He's got to mature physically," Adirondack coach Terry Murray said. "There's a lot of strength and power that needs to be added to his body, and that's going to be an off-ice, summertime [mission]. He has a special ability, though, to make plays and find people in very tight spaces. A lot of guys can't make those little plays he can make, so I think it's just a matter of a process and going through the playing and the development - and it's going to take a couple years, and then we'll see where he's at." The former third round selection in the 2010 draft is a feisty player as well and could be a nice addition in fantasy pools in a few years.

Nick Cousins had a goal and an assist in Philadelphia's 4-3 loss to Toronto in pre-season play Sunday.

Nick Cousins will report to the Flyers' AHL affiliate after avoiding trial on sexual-assault charges.
