Sean Couturier scored a goal and picked up an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Couturier was parked in front of banged in the loose puck in behind Hellebuyck for his 11th goal of the season. Couturier is now just 18 points away from matching his career high of 39 set during the 2013-14 and 2015-16 seasons. For those who don't want to do the math, the former eighth overall pick is up to 21 points in 19 games this season. He is a must own in every format.

Sean Couturier picked up a pair of goals in Monday's 4-3 OT loss to the Arizona Coyotes.

The Flyers were trailing 3-0 in the third period, but they scored three unanswered goals. Couturier's first goal cut the deficit to 3-1, while his second tally, with 16 seconds remaining, tied the game at three. Couturier finished the night with two penalty minutes, four shots on goal and two hits in 24:06 of ice time. Couturier now has nine goals and six assists in 12 games this season. It'll be interesting to see if he can keep this up, but for now he needs to be added in most standard leagues.

Sean Couturier and Valtteri Filppula have switched roles on the power play.

This happened Saturday as Couturier moved to the first line with Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek while Filppula saw action with the second unit. It's another boost to the value of Couturier who has seven goals and 13 points in 11 games.

Sean Couturier picked up a goal and two assists in a 5-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Couturier will be on the wrong end of the highlight reel after Craig Anderson absolutely robbed for the Flyers forward with a beautiful save with under a minute remaining in the first period. Playing with Giroux and Voracek, Couturier has 12 points in 10 games and should be owned everywhere.

Sean Couturier scored two goals but it wasn’t enough as the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 6-2 on Tuesday night.

It was Couturier’s second two-goal game of the season, having previously scored a pair versus Washington just over a week ago. His first goal was the result of a nifty deke on John Gibson, and his second goal of the game was the 200th point of his young NHL career. The center now has six goals and nine points in nine games on the season.

This might be the season Sean Couturier lives up to his offensive promise.

Couturier was a dominant offensive force at the junior level and was projected to eventually be a major contributor in that regard in the NHL. However, the 24-year-old has yet to reach the 40-point mark in a single season and has instead established himself as a strong defensive option. This season though he's getting a great opportunity on the first line and so far he's taken advantage of it by scoring three goals and six points in five games. "I always believed I could produce offensively at this level, but it was more just the situations I was put in I think," said Couturier. "Coming into the league, there wasn’t much room for me in the top six or top nine. I was taking whatever role I could to help the team and I think I did pretty good in a shutdown role. It did get pretty frustrating at times. People see you as a shutdown guy. That can be most frustrating at times." He's in a different situation now and that could lead to this being his breakout season.

Sean Couturier had two goals and an assist Saturday.

It was a big evening for a lot of Flyers but Couturier was among the offensive stars with his big night. The center has three goals and six points and is benefiting from centering Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek. He could be a 60 point player if he remains on the top line so grab him now if you can.
Oct 15 - 9:16 AM

Sean Couturier scored a power play goal and an assist in a 5-1 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday.

The 24-year old center had one point all preseason prior to Thursday. Couturier can contribute points in a secondary role, but the seven-year veteran has yet to record a 40-point season. Couturier didn’t even score a power play goal last season. Of course, the Flyers have better scoring options in guys like Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek. Couturier is still young and bound to break past that 40-point threshold at some point, so he’s worth a look in later fantasy rounds or through the waiver wire.

Sean Couturier had a strong finish to the 2016-17 campaign.

While plus/minus always needs to be taken with a grain of salt, Couturier had a plus-18 rating in his final 19 games. He was also strong offensively over that span with five goals and 17 points. "Sean Couturier was playing the best hockey I've ever seen him play," teammate Jakub Voracek said. Couturier's overall campaign was nothing out of the ordinary though as he finished with 14 goals, 34 points, and a plus-12 rating in 66 games. So the question now is if his hot finish was a taste of things to come or just part of an inconsistent campaign. Couturier, 24, has always had offensive upside, but he's failed to reach the 40-point mark in any of his first six NHL campaigns.

Sean Couturier had a goal and two assists in the Flyers' 6-3 win over the Islanders Thursday night.

With that Couturier has 13 goals and 31 points in 61 contests. He's reached the 30-point mark for four straight campaigns, but he's also likely to continue his trend of falling shy of 40 points.

Sean Couturier found the back of the net in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Minnesota Wild.

Couturier tied the game at one with his goal at the 17:59 mark of the first period. He finished the game with a plus-2 rating, two shots on goal and one takeaway in 19:53 of ice time. The Flyers forward has accumulated seven points in his last six games. Couturier is up to 12 goals and 15 assists in 57 games this season. Matt Read and Jakub Voracek also scored for the Flyers.
Mar 24 - 12:17 AM

Sean Couturier has two goals and nine points in his last eight games.

Add to that a plus-nine rating and you can see why he has been so hot. Couturier had a three assist night on Sunday and has 11 goals and 26 points in 55 games this season. We like his streak but based on his past performance, we still cannot recommend him on an on-going basis.
Mar 20 - 8:48 AM

Sean Couturier scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Couturier opened the scoring one minute into the second period and he also helped set up Dale Weise's goal with less than a minute left in the third frame. Couturier finished the game with a plus-2 rating and eight shots on goal in 18:38 of ice time. The Flyers forward has 11 goals and 12 assists in 53 games.
