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: 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: Out with lower-body injury

Cousins is considered week-to-week after suffering a lower-body issue, the team announced Monday. Based on the team's release, Cousins should be expected to miss at least the next two matches due to his lower-body issue. The 28-year-old center has tallied just one goal in his last nine contests but should still have enough time to get back over the 20-point threshold once cleared to return. In the meantime, Filip Forsberg will almost certainly reclaim his spot on the first line, though Matt Duchene could also be an option.

Predators' Nick Cousins: Nabs helper in win

Cousins posted an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Kings. Cousins helped out on a Matt Luff goal in the second period, and that tally stood as the game-winner. The 28-year-old Cousins has done well in a bottom-six role lately with two goals and an assist in five games since the Predators' season resumed after the holiday break. The Ontario native is up to 10 points (three on the power play), 52 shots on net, 29 hits and a minus-4 rating in 29 outings overall. His offense is limited, but a role on the second power-play unit could lead to some fantasy appeal.

Predators' Nick Cousins: Added to protocols list

Cousins entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday. Cousins will need to submit two negative COVID-19 tests before rejoining the lineup, so he'll miss Thursday's game against the Avalanche at a minimum. The Predators are pretty shorthanded up front, so they may be forced to roll with seven defenders and 11 forwards versus Colorado.

Predators' Nick Cousins: Starting to chip in offensively

Cousins notched an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Devils. Don't look now, but that makes four points in the last eight games for the 28-year-old winger. After a quiet start to the season (three points in his first 12 games) followed by a four-game stint on the IR, Cousins looks to be finally building a bit of momentum. He's still playing mostly on the Preds' fourth line, but if you're in an ultra-deep league in search of some additional scoring help, Cousins might just be your guy.
