Cousins has scored nine goals and has 22 points in 58 games with the Canadiens. He previously played with the Arizona Coyotes and has scored three times in 10 games against the Golden Knights.
He is 26-years-old and a pending RFA with arbitration rights this summer. Cousins has played all three forward positions this season.
More to come on this story…
Nick Cousins 26 that’s good, RFA that’s good, million dollar salary that’s good . We pick these guys out of nowhere and they usually tern out good hence the Chandler Stephenson trade cheap young and good. Martinez looks like a great fit and now Lehner as a goalie what an upgrade good job guys. Now think about this we have these 4 players for a 5th round, a 4th round, two 2nd rounds, and a straight up deal trading Subban outstanding.
Sorry about fake news above I was just driving home and the hockey channel said Subban for Lehner now I read something totally different.
