Nick Cousins Signs Entry-Level Contract With Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers have agreed to an entry-level contract with 2011 third-round pick Nick Cousins, the team announced Monday. The 18-year-old center will join the Adirondack Phantoms on an amateur tryout contract for the remainder of the season.

Cousins was taken with one of the picks the Flyers were given exchange for Jeff Carter from the Columbus Blue Jackets last summer. He just finished his third season with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the OHL, during which he led the team with tallied 88 points and 88 penalty minutes.

The young center has earned himself a reputation for sticking in the craw of opposing players, as well as scoring goals. The Flyers are pretty well set at the position for now, but Cousins could become an integral piece down the road with more seasoning.
