Earlier today, the Canadiens announced that they signed forward Nick Cousins to a one-year, one-way contract worth $1 Million.  Here are some fast facts.


He was drafted in 2011 in the third round by the Philadelphia Flyers.


From 2009 to 2013, he played in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.  Playing a total of 264 games in the OHL, he scored 102 goals and tallied 189 assists.

In 2012, he signed a 3-year entry level contract with the Flyers and made his NHL debut in 2015.


Cousins was traded to the Arizona Coyotes in 2017.  He played a total of 152 games with the team in the desert and scored 19 goals and tallied 27 assists, hitting a career high this past season.


One things for sure, his former teammate with the Coyotes and now teammates with the Habs, Max Domi, is pretty excited to have Cousins join the team in Montreal tweeting, “Habs Nation you will love this guy!!! Let’s gooo!!!”


The question now is: Can he hit a new career high, as others have, in Montreal?
