Flyers Draft Nick Cousins in Third Round

With the 68th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, the Flyers selected center Nick Cousins from Sault Ste. Marie. Cousins is coming off a point per game season in the OHL, where he scored 68 points in 68 games.

Cousins made Team Canada's under-18 team, and scored between five and eight points in 7 games (conflicting reports.) Either way, Cousins is a small center - listed at 5'10" - but he brings a little bit of an edge to his game.

In an interview with Yahoo!'s Neate Sager, Cousins was asked what he had to work on the most:

"Playing both ends of the ice. I put up pretty good numbers [68 points in 68 games for a ninth-place club], but you have to play good defence if you want to play at the next level. So I need to improve on my play in my own and my play without the puck."

So the Flyers grab a big two-way center in the first round, and a small one-way center in the third. Interesting.

Oh, and his favorite TV show is Jersey Shore.

Flyers next pick is #116.
