The Philadelphia Flyers traded forward Nick Cousins and goaltender Merrick Madsen to the Arizona Coyotes for a fifth-round draft pick in 2018 and forward Brendan Warren, the Coyotes confirmed Friday.

Cousins is coming off his first full season in the league after being drafted in the third round in 2011. He split the 2015 and 2016 seasons between the NHL and the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the American Hockey League.

The 23-year-old was rather unimpressive in his first full stint, scoring six goals and adding 10 assists in 60 games.

Madsen is coming off his third year at Harvard University where he posted a record of 28-6-2 with a 2.11 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage.

As for the Flyers, they receive Warren - a 2015 third-round selection of the Coyotes - in addition to the fifth-round pick. He's spent the last two years at the University of Michigan where he's tallied eight goals and 27 points in 73 contests.
