He Said, He Said

I've never been a big fan of players using the media to fire potshots at each other, but this is a pretty good exchange between London Knights forward Matt Rupert and Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds standout Nick Cousins.  The two exchanged barbs after a heated weekend match between the two OHL rivals.  First Rupert: “He’s a loser,” the London Knights forward said. “Put...

A little late but, Ryan Rupert gets 5 games for Paul Bunyan chop on Nick Cousins

I mean really, Rupert hauled off and pummeled Nick Cousins hard with his carbon fiber stick and then dropped his gloves and attacked Cousins starting a near line brawl. Nick Cousins also received a two...

Flyers Prospect Nick Cousins Making Headlines and Enemies

When the Flyers drafted Nick Cousins this past June using the 3rd round pick from the Columbus Blue Jackets, my initial reaction was that it had to have been a selection based on pure talent, as opposed to need.  It’s no secret that the defensive depth for the Flyers is weak while they have consistently [...]
