Nick Cousins scored the only goal of the night as the Flyers lost a 3-1 contest to the Flames on Wednesday.
Cousins sixth goal of the season was aided by Mark Read’s sixth assist, but Cousins would go on to play an even bigger role in the game. At the 7:41 mark of the first he drew a five minute penalty and game misconduct by Alex Chiasson for spearing. At the end of that power-play, the Flames had a two-man advantage for two minutes after Sean Monahan was dinged for a delay of game. The Flyers were unable to score for that power-play and the rest of the night. Feb 16 - 12:33 AM

Jan 10 - 6:56 PM

Nick Cousins, Boyd Gordon and Nick Schultz will be scratched against the Ducks on Sunday.

Of the three only Cousins has picked up much playing time, and fantasy value. Through 34 games he's posted 10 points with 21 PIMs and 34 hits. Well more than Gordon and Schultz combined in every respect.
Jan 1 - 4:16 PM

Nick Cousins scored his first goal in 17 games in Wednesday's loss to St. Louis.

Cousins tipped home an Ivan Provorov shot in the second period to tie the game at two. The 23-year-old has four goals and six assists in 33 games. He's not on the fantasy radar.

Nick Cousins picked up his ninth point of the season during Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Stars.

Cousins' assist gives him six on the season and 11th for his career. Now through 76 career games he has 20 points, which unfortunately may indicate his fantasy value.

Sens forward Kyle Turris tied the game with under two minutes left in regulation and Erik Karlsson scored the winner in the shootout. Cousins was the first shooter in the shootout, but he was stopped by Craig Anderson. He has two goals and three assists in 13 games.

Nick Cousins will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Cousins picked up two assists in the regular season opener against the Los Angeles Kings last Friday, but was a little quieter in the following game. He had been playing on the third line with Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Dale Weise. Matt Read will slot into that spot in place of Cousins. Roman Lyubimov will take Cousins' spot on the roster.

Nick Cousins assisted on two goals by the Flyers in Friday's 4-2 win against Los Angeles.

He had the primary helper on Boyd Gordon's icebreaker in the second period and he had a hand in Mark Streit's goal, which gave Philadelphia a 4-0 lead. Cousins had 11 points in 36 games last season.

Nick Cousins replaced Brayden Schenn on the first power play Saturday.

Schenn is slated to miss the first three games of the season due to a suspension received in the playoffs last season so Cousins could have some fantasy value in DFS in the first week of the campaign. He had six goals and 11 points in 36 games with the Flyers in 2015-16 after being a third round selection in the 2011 Draft. He has little yearly fantasy value at this time as he is a bottom-two center when the Flyers are healthy.

Nick Cousins isn't expected to be going anywhere.

The 23-year-old would have to pass through waivers to make his way back to AHL Lehigh Valley, and that's not very likely at all. Cousins posted 11 points in his 36-game stint with Philadelphia last season. He's been a near point per game player in the AHL the last two seasons, so we'd expect good things from him in 2016-17.

Nick Cousins' recently inked one-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers is a two-way agreement.
