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. Sun, Mar 2, 2014 09:09:00 AM

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.

Philadelphia prospect Nick Cousins, and Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds Greyhounds teammates Mark Petaccio and Andrew Fritsch, were charged with sexual assault on Saturday against "a female known to them."

"We are aware of the unfortunate situation involving Nick Cousins," said Flyers GM Paul Holmgren in a statement. "Due to lack of information available to us, we will not comment at this time." Cousins has been released into the custody of a surety, who is in charge of monitoring several conditions. The 19-year-old was signed by Philadelphia back in March to an entry-level deal. Cousins and Fritsch, who is a sixth-round pick of the Phoenix Coyotes, have a court date set for Oct. 1, while Petaccio will appear in bail court on Monday.

Although Nick Cousins is coming off an 88-point season at the OHL level, he knows that he'll be more of an agitator in the NHL.

"That's a huge part of my game," Cousins said. "I grew up doing it. I just know how to get under people's skin - the kind of guy you love to have on your team, but hate to play against." He probably won't be able to make the Philadelphia Flyers' opening game roster.
