Nick Cousins struggling in first pro season | 03/02/2014 9:09 AM
NewsNick Cousins has only one goal in his last 26 games for the Adirondack Phantoms.
Philadelphia Inquirer & Daily News
ImpactCousins is playing in his first professional season and has 14 points this season in 51 games in the AHL after a 103 point season in the OHL in 2012-13. "He's got to mature physically," Adirondack coach Terry Murray said. "There's a lot of strength and power that needs to be added to his body, and that's going to be an off-ice, summertime [mission]. He has a special ability, though, to make plays and find people in very tight spaces. A lot of guys can't make those little plays he can make, so I think it's just a matter of a process and going through the playing and the development - and it's going to take a couple years, and then we'll see where he's at." The former third round selection in the 2010 draft is a feisty player as well and could be a nice addition in fantasy pools in a few years.
