  • 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.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Goes cold offensively

    Cousins only has two assists through eight games in December.

    It has been an inconsistent start to the 2022-23 season for Cousins. He didn't pick up a point in seven October appearances prior to exploding for three goals and five helpers in 13 November contests. Unfortunately, he has slowed to a crawl offensively again this month. Cousins has also accounted for 44 shots on goal and 21 hits in 28 games this year.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Tallies in Tuesday's loss

    Cousins scored a goal on two shots, added three hits and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Flames.

    Cousins snapped a six-game goal drought, but he had four assists in that span. The 29-year-old has become an effective part of the Panthers' scoring depth this month, earning all of eight points in the last 12 games. He's added 30 shots on net, 14 hits and a plus-1 rating through 20 contests overall despite averaging less than 10 minutes of ice time per game.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Plucks apple in overtime loss

    Cousins logged an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    Cousins saw his even-strength minutes on the top line Monday, though he still saw just 13:35 of ice time overall. The Panthers have had to get creative with usage among forwards during Aleksander Barkov's (illness) absence. Cousins has been productive lately with four helpers in his last four outings, and the 29-year-old veteran has seven points, 28 shots on net, 11 hits, eight blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in 19 contests overall.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Gets two assists Sunday

    Cousins registered two assists in a 5-3 loss to Columbus on Sunday.

    Cousins earned his first multi-point game since April 17. He has two goals and five points in 16 contests this season. Cousins serves primarily as a fourth-line forward and his offensive contributions will be limited as a result.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Opens third-period scoring

    Cousins scored what proved to be the game-winning goal during Tuesday's 5-2 victory over the Capitals.

    At the side of the net, Cousins received a pass from Gustav Forsling. The 29-year-old center curled around goalie Darcy Kuemper and executed a tuck-in goal to give the Panthers a 3-1, third-period advantage. The 29-year-old center went goalless over his first 10 games this season but has rebounded with two markers over his past three outings. Cousins generated four shots in only 9:16 of ice time during the win.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Moves to press box

    Cousins has been scratched for the past two games.

    Cousins played in the first seven contests of the 2022-23 campaign before heading to the press box to make room for Eric Staal. The latter has been playing between Patric Hornqvist and Ryan Lomberg. Cousins had five shots on goal and four hits in seven games prior to being replaced by Staal.

  • Panthers' Nick Cousins: Signs in Florida

    Cousins signed a two-year, $2.2 million contract with the Panthers on Wednesday.

    Cousins put up 22 points in 68 games with the Predators last season, filling a bottom-six role. The 28-year-old also averaged 1:39 of power-play ice time per game, so he could be an option to play on the second unit with the Panthers. Cousins won't move the needle much, but his modest offense and moderate physicality should make him a fixture in the lineup with his new team.

  • Predators' Nick Cousins: Opens scoring in blowout loss

    Cousins had a goal and an assist in Sunday's 8-3 loss to the Blues.

    Cousins got the Predators off to a good start by scoring the game's first goal less than five minutes in, but it was all Blues after that, as St. Louis potted the game's next seven goals. Luke Kunin ended the Blues' scoring streak in the second period, and Cousins assisted on that goal to earn his first multi-point performance in over a month.

  • Predators' Nick Cousins: Chips in with helper

    Cousins logged an assist in Monday's 6-3 win over the Ducks.

    Cousins earned the secondary assist on Roman Josi's first-period tally. In his last five games, Cousins has recorded a goal and four assists despite still playing in a fourth-line role. The 28-year-old is up to 18 points, 79 shots on net, 53 hits and a minus-2 rating in 50 contests.

  • Predators' Nick Cousins: Three points in win over Wild

    Cousins scored an empty-net goal and added two assists in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Wild.

    The 28-year-old hasn't had many opportunities to make a splash this season, but he was all over the scoresheet Sunday, chipping in two shots, two blocked shots, one hit and a plus-3 rating, as well. Cousins has only seven goals and 16 points through 46 games, but remarkably, this was his second three-point performance of the year, with the other coming Oct. 23 against the Jets.

  • Predators' Nick Cousins: Playing Tuesday

    Cousins (lower body) will participate in Tuesday's game against Dallas.
