The Philadelphia Flyers and Arizona Coyotes are reportedly close to a trade, according to Craig Custance.
Sounds like smaller trade going down between Flyers and Coyotes.

It looks like it could be Nick Cousins heading to Arizona, from what Pierre LeBrun is reporting.

It’ll be interesting to see what they could get for Cousins though, as the Coyotes have a few similar players that could come back in the deal.
CSNPhilly’s Tim Pannacio is reporting that Cousins could be a part of a bigger deal with the Coyotes.
Rumors of Flyers sending Cousins to Ariz could be part of something bigger.

Ron Hextall has made a few good trades with the Coyotes over the past few years, namely shedding Nick Grossmann and Chris Pronger two years ago.
The Flyers could have interest in Coyotes goalie Mike Smith. Smith is 35, with two years left on his deal at $5.66 million per year. He carries a .913 career save percentage.
Stay tuned tonight as the details continue to come it. The NHL’s trade freeze goes into effect tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. EST.
