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. He's expected to center the third line between Ryan White and Zac Rinaldo. Not to be outdone physically, Cousins has 71 PIMs himself down on the farm.

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.

The 19-year-old is picking up where he left off. Last season, he scored 35 goals and had 53 assists in 65 games. This year, he already has seven and 10, respectively. It would appear that the Flyers got a nice bargain by taking him in the third round of the 2011 draft, but then again, you never know how a player's game will translate on the big stage.
