After signing a new six-year contract with the Flyers earlier this week, Sean Couturier said he doesn't want to change his style of play, but he would like to produce more offensively.
"I'm really looking forward to coming to camp and trying to take another step forward," he said. "I'm not going to change as a player or as a person. I'm going to be the same type of player and just try to definitely produce a little more offensively." The 22-year-old scored 15 goals and 37 points in 82 games with the Flyers last season.

Sean Couturier has inked a six-year, $26 million extension with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Couturier still has a year left on his existing deal, so he's now locked up through 2021-22. Couturier has established himself as a solid defensive center, but whether or not this deal will be viewed as a bargain will be dependent on his ability to grow offensively. Although he excelled with the puck at the junior level, he's never recorded more than 39 points in a single NHL season. Still, he's just 22 years old, so it's not unreasonable to believe that he'll continue to improve over the next few seasons.

Sean Couturier finished the 2015 World Championships with three goals and seven points in 10 games.

Couturier won a gold medal with Team Canada. "Being a part of that experience, I would've done whatever was asked of me," Couturier said. "I was lucky enough to play my natural position. The players are so good there, it's easy to adjust to anything. It was such a different atmosphere than when you're with a group of guys for six or seven months. Everyone left their egos on the side and chipped in the same." Couturier went on to describe the tournament as the best hockey experience of his young career. The fact that it went so well for him on both a team and individual level should be a nice confidence boost going into the 2015-16 campaign.

Sean Couturier will try and extend his five game points streak on Saturday.

Sean Couturier scored the only goal for the Flyers in Thursday night's 3-1 loss to the Hurricanes.

Couturier now has 36 points in 81 games, which is three points fewer than his output last season. The 22-year-old didn't digress but didn't improve much either. He'll be looking to break out next season to see if he can capture that elite points-producing sense he displayed in junior.

Sean Couturier is okay after receiving a knee-on-knee hit from Washington's Matt Niskanen on Sunday.

Sean Couturier had two assists in the Flyers' 4-2 loss on Monday.

Couturier got off to a slow start this season, but he has five goals and 12 points in 13 games. Given how much offensive upside he has, Couturier is worth taking a chance on in standard leagues.

Sean Couturier had a goal and an assist on Saturday.

Couturier has nine goals and 17 points in 32 games thus far but has four goals and nine points in his last nine games. The center just turned 22 earlier in the month and is showing some scoring capabilities as he has always been a terrific player in his own end.

Philadelphia Flyers forward Sean Couturier extended his scoring streak to six straight games (three goals, four assists) as his team beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 on Saturday.

Could this be a sign of a breakout for the eighth pick of the 2011 NHL Draft? At 22, there's always a chance that he could have untapped potential. The Flyers are getting more offense from their supporting cast lately, even though Claude Giroux (two assists) and Jakub Voracek (one goal, one assist) are still playing very well.

The points extended Couturier's point streak to five games, giving the 22-year-old 14 points in 28 games. Fantasy players might want to ride out the younger's hot streak, but we still project the forward to finish around the 40 point range this season.
