Sean Couturier has become one the NHL's best defensive centers and is getting some Selke Trophy buzz.

He has been extremely effective in shutting down the NHL's top offensive centers such as Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Jonathan Toews. That makes him a highly-praised NHL player. But with only 10 goals and 35 points this season, he is barely rosterable in fantasy hockey circles.

Philadelphia center Sean Couturier, a little more than three months removed from his 21st birthday, is becoming one of the top centers in the NHL and, in a 4-0 victory for Philadelphia over Pittsburgh Saturday, he outshone the game's top player, Sidney Crosby.

Couturier assisted on two of the Flyers' three goals and won six of eight faceoffs against the Penguins' captain. Crosby finished the day at minus-3. He has been a minus-3 or worse only two other times this season. Veteran Flyer Claude Giroux on Couturier: "There's a little thing - when he plays Pittsburgh, he just plays better."
Mar 16 - 10:28 AM

Sean Couturier had two assists in Philadelphia's 3-1 win over Colorado.

Couturier has recorded at least a point in four of his last five contests. He has nine goals and 28 points in 58 games this season.

Sean Couturier found the back of the net on Tuesday.

Couturier ended a nine-game goal scoring drought. He's had some solid patches offensively, but overall his fantasy value in standard leagues has been limited. This was his ninth goal and 24th point in 54 contests in 2013-14.

Sean Couturier will be in the Philadelphia Flyers lineup after missing practice Saturday to attend his grandmother's funeral.

Couturier had been hot of late with 10 points in nine games but has only one assist in his last four games with a minus-six rating and 19 penalty minutes. He has five goals and 15 points in 29 games with a plus-four rating and 29 penalty minutes so he is worth owning in deeper leagues. Our condolences to the Couturier family on their loss.

Poolies should keep a close eye on Sean Couturier as he's posted 10 points during his last nine contests.

Couts has been red-hot during the last nine games, which has seen him take a big leap in his development. One of the primary reasons for the big boost in offensive production is due to a spike in ice time. During this span, Couturier is averaging 19:55 per contest, which trails only Claude Giroux in terms of ice-time by a Flyer forward. Another big reason for the offensive boost is the shots on goal, he's averaging 2.7 shots on goal which is a decent number to post to justify his production. One downside however, is his lack of power-play ice-time, as he garners just 47 seconds per contest. If he can ever get into that two-three minute range, his production could skyrocket. If you're looking for help up the middle definitely consider Couts!

Sean Couturier registered two goals and two assists in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Red Wings.

It was an impressive performance for the penalty killing specialist, but let's not run out to pick him up in fantasy leagues just yet, as he entered the game on pace for a 30-point season. Scott Hartnell, Claude Giroux, Steve Downie and Matt Read all found the back of the net in the Flyers win.

Sean Couturier scored in his second straight game on Saturday.

After scoring only one goal in his first 24 games, Couturier has now gone back-to-back this week. Couturier has 10 points in 26 games this season and could be breaking out of his season long slump but we would not recommend him at this time. The third period goal tied the game at two as the Flyers won 3-2 in a shootout.

Sean Couturier scored a shorthanded goal on Friday that proved to be the game-winner against the Winnipeg Jets.

Couturier has two goals and nine points in 25 games this season. Scott Hartnell also netted an unassisted goal during the 2-1 victory.

Sean Couturier is now centering a line with Steve Downie and Matt Read.

The trio have been great together as they have combined for five goals and 13 points in the last three games. Couturier has four points in his last three games including his first goal of the season and now has eight points in 22 games. The troika have been a big reason why the Flyers are flying with a 6-0-1 record in their last seven games.

Sean Couturier had two assists in a 4-1 win over Buffalo.

Couturier netted his first goal of the season in the Flyers' previous contest. He now has seven points in 21 games in 2013-14.

Flyers coach Craig Berube thinks Sean Couturier ending his season-opening goal scoring drought will boost his production going forward.

"I think he'll start putting it in a little bit now," Berube said. "Sometimes you get that first goal and feel better and more confident." Couturier finally found the back of the net in his 20th game of the season, giving him five points overall. We'll see, but either way, we don't expect Couturier have a big season offensively this season despite his upside.

Sean Couturier scored a goal in Philadelphia's 5-2 win over Ottawa on Tuesday.

Couturier has been advised to focus on his defensive game, but the Flyers certainly won't mind if he contributes offensively too. This was his first goal of the campaign, so it might serve as a confidence booster that pushes Couturier into an offensive hot streak. He has five points in 20 games this season.

The Philadelphia Daily News says forward Sean Couturier is finally playing with confidence again.

Couturier has no goals this season but the newspaper says he is confident because of his defensive contributions. "On Wednesday night, for instance, you look at the ice time and notice the only shift Sidney Crosby took without Couturier on the ice was when Couturier was in the penalty box in the third period," the paper says. "He's been huge," Flyers coach Craig Berube is quoted as saying about Couturier. "He's going against a lot of good players every night. He does a real good job defensively."
