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.

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.
