Sean Couturier was awarded the first star of the game in a 4-2 win over the Kings on Friday.

Couturier earned first star honors after scoring two goals in the contest; the second of which proved to be the game winner. After tying his career high last season with 39 points in 63 games, we might see an offensive breakout from the former 8th overall pick. Boyd Gordon and Mark Streit also scored for the Flyers.

Sean Couturier will have an opportunity to contribute more offensively in 2016-17 with his starting linemates being Jakub Voracek and Travis Konecny.

Couturier has never recorded more than 15 goals or 39 points in a single season, but the 23-year-old is seen as someone that has a significant amount of untapped offensive upside. Whether that will ever be realized or not remains to be seen. Certainly this topic of Couturier enjoying a breakout season has been risen in the past and at those times led to disappointment. This time has the potential to be different, but that's not the same as suggesting that it will certainly be different.

Sean Couturier feels the World Cup helped him substantially when it came to getting ready for the regular season.

Couturier was part of Team North America. "I feel almost in midseason form," Couturier said. "We were there for three weeks of pretty intense [play] and six games. Three games in four nights in the tournament, so it was a pretty busy schedule, and the level of hockey was pretty impressive for September." It would be interesting to see how much playing in the World Cup benefits those who took part in it. At the same time, it's also hard to gauge, particularly because it was mostly the league's best in the tournament anyways, so it won't be surprising if they excel out of the gate. Perhaps the Team North America players could see the most tangible gains as it gave the promising youngsters a bit of a potential edge over some of the league's veterans.

Apr 23 - 1:20 PM

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.
