Unfortunately, Sean Couturier has not yet improved from his shoulder injury.

Which means that he will most definitely miss the remainder of the Flyers' series with the Capitals. As for when he may return should they pull off a miracle, that remains to be seen.

Sean Couturier (shoulder) is expected to miss the next two weeks, which rules him out for the remainder of the first round.

Philadelphia is calling it an upper-body injury, though an earlier report described Couturier's problem as an AC sprain in his left shoulder. He was hurt after taking a hard hit from hit from Alex Ovechkin during Thursday's contest. Although Couturier isn't one of Philadelphia's biggest threats offensively, he is a key component of the team and will be sorely missed as the Flyers try to upset the Washington Capitals.

Sean Couturier (shoulder) won't return to Philadelphia's first-round series against Washington.

Couturier suffered an AC sprain in his left shoulder. It's a big blow for the Flyers, as Couturier is one of their best two-way players. He was injured after being crushed by Caps forward Alex Ovechkin. The only way Couturier will return this season is if the Flyers find a way to get by the Capitals. Philadelphia trails the best-of-seven series 1-0.

Sean Couturier has been red hot lately.

Couturier has nine assists in his last 10 games. He's been limited to 55 contests in 2015-16, but he's still approaching career highs with his 25 assists and 34 points. Couturier has been noted for his defensive play for much of his NHL play, but he hasn't lived up to expectations offensively. It will be interesting to see if his stronger showing in 2015-16 is a stepping stone to a big 2016-17 campaign.

Sean Couturier (lower body) will be back in the fold on Tuesday night.

He has missed the last nine games and 12 of 14 because of injuries, but he's hoping to put that behind him and continue the success he had when he was in the lineup. Couturier has registered 16 points in his last 16 games played. He is expected to play between Michael Raffl and Jakub Voracek after being removed from injured reserve.
Feb 23 - 2:18 PM

Sean Couturier (lower body) thinks he will be able to play on Tuesday.

"I feel ready to play," Couturier said. "I’ve been skating the past days pretty hard and trying to get back into shape. It might take a little while to get in that game shape but I’m not worried. I’m just going to keep it simple if I get to go." Flyers coach Dave Hakstol hasn't committed to inserting Couturier into the lineup on Tuesday, but one way or another it sounds like the forward is very close to returning. Philadelphia is 5-9-4 without Couturier in 2015-16.
