The Flyers drafted Nick Cousins with the 68th overall pick. He's a 5'10", 166lbs center who posted 68 points for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the OHL last season.

This is what Corey Pronman had to say about Cousins:

94. Nick Cousins, Center, Sault Ste. Marie-OHL

Nick Cousins had good season with the Greyhounds and put on a good display of his talents at the Under-18's. He moves at a pro-level with a fluid stride and is good on his edges, but doesn't show any indication of the tool being beyond that. His puck skills are solid to above-average, but Cousins is more of a distributor than a dangler but can handle the puck at a decent level. He's undersized and despite notable work ethic, his physical game is below fringe level and he can only show offensive effectiveness from the perimeter. Cousins does show hustle along the walls, but doesn't win enough puck battles to be effective in the physical areas. His hockey sense is decent and offensively he sees the ice well and makes the right decisions with the puck, but defensively despite the fact he shows work ethic in that area, he isn't that impressive in terms of his coverage. Cousins likely projects as an energy player, but has the puck skills to be decent in the possession game if one of his major tools takes a step forward.

Projected Peak GVT: 3.9

Statistical Comparable: Bill Bowler

Flyers sign Nick Cousins and will report to Phantoms. Was 6th in the OHL in scoring. 88 points in 65 games.

They chose to let him go. They did not want to sign him.

Okay apparently they are interested in signing him.

Randy Miller ‏@RandyJMiller

Homer says #Flyers would be interesting in signing Ranford to AHL contract if he's not drafted next weekend


Good grief. You have all sorts of useless prospects under contract and you can't find one for one of the few kids that shows a flash of potential?

#Flyers being at 47 signed players, 3 under limit, factored in not signing Ranford, Homer said

I'd like to hear why they use a contract a long shot like Johnston and refuse to sign a player playing at a higher level in Ranford. Or qualify Rowe who has has no NHL upside.

The logic (lack thereof) is baffling, isn't it?

I really question their scouting director these days. A lot of their picks/prospects they sign are questionable. He recently tried to claim Mathers can play. Yeah a kid who lights it up with 5 points can play. Now we hear they like Wilson. That kid is the one most likely to bust from the first round. Ugh.

Well whatever he got up to seems to be workin out for him now.
Off to a quick start in the OHL at 12 pts (5,7) in 6. Good for 2nd in league scoring for the moment.
I've not seen any of his play but it's working from here.

Cousins now sits in 2nd and only 1 point behind the lead at 76 (19g 57a) in 49 with a month and a half or so left in the season.
