Top Nick Cousins News

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Good to go

    Cousins (concussion) will be activated off injured reserve and return to the lineup Tuesday versus Philadelphia.

    Cousins is expected to return to a third-line role after missing a month of action due to a concussion. He's collected only five points through 37 games this campaign.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Upgraded to day-to-day

    Cousins (concussion) has been given the all-clear to practice but is still considered day-to-day and won't be ready to face the Penguins on Friday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Cousins made the trip with the Panthers and might still be able to suit up versus the Islanders on Saturday. Even once cleared to play, Cousins is unlikely to offer much in the way of fantasy value considering he is pointless in his last 14 outings and hasn't scored since Nov. 6 versus Columbus, a stretch of 26 contests without a goal.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Still not skating

    Per Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site, Cousins has yet to resume skating as he is still experiencing concussion symptoms, according to coach Paul Maurice.

    Cousins was injured Jan. 2 in Arizona and has missed the last three games. Prior to getting injured, Cousins was pointless in his last 14 games and has just two goals and five points in 37 NHL appearances this season. There is no timetable for his return at this time.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Moved to injured reserve

    Cousins was placed on injured reserve Friday, according to Colby Guy of Florida Hockey Now

    The move can be made retroactive to Tuesday, which is when Cousins was injured. That'd make him eligible to be activated in time for next Thursday's contest versus LA, though with Cousins being in the concussion protocol, it's not known how long he'll be out. He has two goals, five points and 45 hits in 37 contests this season. Jonah Gadjovich might play regularly during Cousins' absence.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: In concussion protocol

    Cousins is in the concussion protocol, coach Paul Maurice told Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site on Wednesday.

    Cousins was injured when he was hit from behind by Arizona's Jason Zucker during Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Coyotes. Cousins has two goals, five points, 45 hits and 13 blocks in 37 outings this year. Ryan Lomberg will likely move up to the third line if Cousins can't play Thursday versus Vegas.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Missing from practice

    Cousins was unable to practice Wednesday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports, which comes after he appeared to have been injured against Arizona on Tuesday, per David Dwork of The Hockey News.

    Cousins played just one shift in the third period after being hit from behind by Arizona's Jason Zucker. The 30-year-old Cousins has played in all 37 games for the Panthers this season but is currently mired in a 14-game pointless streak and hasn't scored since Nov. 6 versus Columbus, a stretch of 26 contests. Ryan Lomberg will likely move into Cousins' third-line role if he can't play.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Grabs helper in win

    Cousins posted an assist in Friday's 2-1 win over the Ducks.

    Cousins had the secondary helper on Oliver Ekman-Larsson's goal, which was the game-winner. The assist snapped a five-game point streak for Cousins, who has shown little offense while filling a middle-six role this season. He's up to three points, 27 shots on goal, 19 hits, seven blocked shots and a minus-3 rating through 17 appearances.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Provides goal Monday

    Cousins tallied a goal in a 5-4 overtime win over Columbus on Monday.

    Cousins provided his second marker and point in 11 contests this season. He entered Monday's action averaging a modest 11:32 of ice time in 2023-24, but that kind of bottom-six role has been the norm for the 30-year-old forward throughout his career. Cousins has never recorded more than 27 points in a single year and is unlikely to exceed that total this campaign.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Scores game-winner

    Cousins potted the game-winning goal in a 3-2 victory over Seattle on Saturday.

    Cousins broke a 2-2 tie at the 14:08 mark of the third period. It was his first point in seven games this season. Cousins also has 12 shots on net and 11 hits while occupying a middle-six role for the Panthers.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Pockets assist

    Cousins provided an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Tuesday's 9-3 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 5.

    Cousins set up an Aaron Ekblad tally in the second period. The helper snapped an eight-game point drought for Cousins, who was shuffled down to the third line with Matthew Tkachuk (chest) out of action Tuesday. Cousins had seven points, an even plus-minus rating, 26 shots on net, 56 hits and 16 PIM in 21 playoff outings. He enters 2023-24 likely to fill a bottom-six role, though the Panthers' could have some significant holes to fill in their lineup early in the season after ending the playoffs with numerous major injuries.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Scores in Game 1

    Cousins scored a goal on one shot in Tuesday's Game 1 matchup with the Leafs.

    Cousins had been mired in a 10-game goal drought prior to Tuesday's tally, during which he garnered four assists, 11 shots and 17 hits. During the regular season, the 29-year-old center notched just 27 points in 79 games (.342 points per game) but has been producing at a .625 point-per-game rate in the playoffs.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Contributes two assists vs. Boston

    Cousins recorded two assists in a 6-3 win over Boston in Game 2 on Wednesday.

    Cousins had nine goals and 27 points in 79 regular-season appearances, so he isn't exactly known for his offensive contributions. In fact, this was Cousins' first multi-point game since Nov. 20. He's playing in a fourth-line role, so he shouldn't be expected to have many more games like this during the 2023 playoffs.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Scores Saturday

    Cousins scored a goal in Saturday's 7-0 win over Columbus.

    Cousins gave the Panthers a 5-0 lead at the 8:34 mark of the third period with his eighth goal of the season. He has accounted for 26 points, 96 shots on goal and 82 hits through 74 contests this campaign. Cousins is just one point away from tying his previous personal best, which came in 2018-19 as a member of the Coyotes.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Chips in with helper

    Cousins produced an assist in Monday's 2-1 shootout win over the Wild.

    Cousins entered Monday with no points in his last four games. He's picked up six helpers in 13 contests since his last goal, though playing in a bottom-six role limits his effectiveness on offense. The 29-year-old forward has 19 points, 71 shots on net, 51 hits, 25 blocked shots, 32 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 53 outings this season.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Awarded goal Thursday

    Cousins was credited with a goal in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    After a lengthy review in the first period, Cousins was given an awarded goal after the net came off during a scramble out front. The 29-year-old will take them anyway he can get them at this point -- he entered the contest on a four-game point drought, and he's scored just twice since the start of December. The Ontario native has five tallies, 13 points, 59 shots on net, 37 hits and a minus-3 rating through 40 appearances.
