Sean Couturier scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Couturier registered the primary assist on Matt Read's game-winning goal in the third period before adding the empty netter in the final seconds. The 24-year-old is up to nine goals and 15 points in 36 games this season. He's still not worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

Sean Couturier scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-4 shootout win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Couturier helped set up Travis Konecny's power play goal in the first period and he added one of his own in the second to give his team a 3-2 lead. Couturier finished tonight's game with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, five shots on goal and a blocked shot in 22:50 of ice time. He has eight goals and four assists in 28 games this season. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Brayden Schenn also scored for the Flyers, while Claude Giroux scored the winner in the shootout.

Sean Couturier has been a consistent contributor to the Flyers over the years.

With his seventh goal of the season, and 10th point, the young veteran now has double-digit point totals in each of his six seasons in the bigs. Mighty impressive to say the least.

Sean Couturier scored his sixth goal of the season in the Flyers 4-3 shootout loss to Anaheim Sunday.

Couturier returned to action three games ago after a 16 game absence due to a sprained MCL. He has nine points this season in 23 games. Couturier could have tied things up in the shootout but he missed in the fifth round while Corey Perry scored to give the Ducks the win. Couturier is a better hockey player than fantasy one and really should not be on a team unless it is a very deep league.

Sean Couturier and his teammates could not put any pucks past Aaron Dell in a 2-0 loss on Friday.

Flyers had a hard time getting anything going against Dell and the Sharks, managing a combined 21 shots with Couturier leading the way with a total of four. The former 8th overall pick has eight points in 22 games this season and it is fair to wonder if his offensive game will ever develop to the level desired from a top-10 pick.

Sean Couturier felt good after returning following a 16-game absence for an MCL sprain.

Couturier registered a hit in 18:15 minutes of ice time on Wednesday. He didn't get any points or shots though. "It's never easy coming back finding your timing. As the game went on I feel I got better," Couturier said. "My legs were there; I felt in good shape, but my timing, I felt sometimes either a little ahead of the play or a little behind the play. It's just about finding the right timing. I have to build on last night. It wasn't our best game but I have to build and get better every day."

Sean Couturier is expected to return to the lineup on Wednesday night.

He isn't listed on injured reserve anymore and could play against St. Louis after missing 16 games with an MCL sprain to his left knee. The Flyers didn't confirm he would be back in the fold, though. "Coots has a shot at playing soon," GM Ron Hextall said. "Hopefully he plays tomorrow. We will probably flip Reader [Matt Read] to LTIR." If Couturier does play Wednesday then he is slated to center the third line.
