Top Nick Cousins News

  • Predators' Nick Cousins: On pace for career numbers

    Cousins notched a power-play goal in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.

    Cousins has been a pleasant surprise for the Preds this season. Now with 13 points in 37 games, he could reach the 30-point plateau for the first time in his career if he keeps up his current pace.

  • Predators' Nick Cousins: Nabs helper in win

    Cousins posted an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Cousins helped out on a Matt Luff goal in the second period, and that tally stood as the game-winner. The 28-year-old Cousins has done well in a bottom-six role lately with two goals and an assist in five games since the Predators' season resumed after the holiday break. The Ontario native is up to 10 points (three on the power play), 52 shots on net, 29 hits and a minus-4 rating in 29 outings overall. His offense is limited, but a role on the second power-play unit could lead to some fantasy appeal.

  • Predators' Nick Cousins: Clears protocols

    Cousins was removed from the COVID-19 list Monday.

  • Predators' Nick Cousins: Added to protocols list

    Cousins entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday.

    Cousins will need to submit two negative COVID-19 tests before rejoining the lineup, so he'll miss Thursday's game against the Avalanche at a minimum. The Predators are pretty shorthanded up front, so they may be forced to roll with seven defenders and 11 forwards versus Colorado.

  • Predators' Nick Cousins: Starting to chip in offensively

    Cousins notched an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Devils.

    Don't look now, but that makes four points in the last eight games for the 28-year-old winger. After a quiet start to the season (three points in his first 12 games) followed by a four-game stint on the IR, Cousins looks to be finally building a bit of momentum. He's still playing mostly on the Preds' fourth line, but if you're in an ultra-deep league in search of some additional scoring help, Cousins might just be your guy.

    Cousins has battled injuries lately, but he has a goal and four assists in his last five contests. The 27-year-old is little more than a bottom-six option for the Predators. He's racked up 18 points, 60 shots on net, 48 hits and a plus-4 rating through 52 contests this year. Cousins' slight physicality and respectable scoring could make him a solid depth selection for DFS once the playoffs are underway.
