He still has to participate in a full practice with contact, so it's unclear if he will be ready to play Thursday.

Center Sean Couturier was injured during the Philadelphia Flyers' 5-4 overtime victory in Boston Wednesday night.

Couturier played in 7:13 of the first period, the second most of any Flyers forward in the period, but did not play in the second and third. Before Wednesday, Couturier recorded a goal and two assists in five games and averaged 18:07 of ice time per game, third-most among Flyers forwards.

With the Flyers down 2-0 in the third period, Couturier beat Antti Niemi to put Philadelphia on the board.

Wayne Simmonds and Matt Read picked up the assists on Couturier's goal.

Sean Couturier recorded an assist in a 1-0 win over Florida on Monday.

It was Couturier's first point in three games this season. He's been limited to 39 and 37 points in each of his previous two campaigns, but the 22-year-old does have more offensive upside than those numbers imply. While he's not a safe bet to take a step forward this season, he's certainly worth keeping an eye on.

Sean Couturier (upper body) is expected to play on Thursday.
