Coyotes acquire F Cousins from Flyers

The Arizona Coyotes acquired left winger Nick Cousins in a three-player deal with the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday.

The Coyotes sent left winger Brendan Warren along with a fifth-round draft choice in 2018 to the Flyers for Cousins and goaltender Merrick Madsen.

Cousins totaled six goals and 16 points in 60 games for the Flyers last season. Philadelphia drafted him in the third round of the 2011 draft and has 12 goals and 27 points in 107 regular-season games.

"We are very pleased to acquire Nick," Arizona general manager John Chayka said in a statement. "He is a tenacious, versatile, two-way center who will add grit and energy to our lineup. We're excited to have him join the Coyotes."

Madsen was Philadelphia's sixth-round pick in 2013 and was 28-6-2 with a 2.11 goals-against average in 36 games for Harvard last season.

Warren was Arizona's third-round pick in 2015 and the 20-year-old totaled three goals and 10 points in 35 games for Michigan.
