Top Flyers prospect Cousins charged with sexual assault
LESS THAN 2 months after impressing at July's rookie camp, Flyers top prospect Nick Cousins is in the headlines again. This time, it is for the wrong reasons.
According to police in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Cousins, 19, and Soo Greyhounds teammates Mark Petaccio and Andrew Fritsch were charged with sexual assault on Saturday against "a female known to them."
Cousins and Fritsch, a 2011 Coyotes draft pick, have been released and are due in court on Oct. 1, said police. Petaccio will appear in bail court on Monday.
