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. Apr 20 - 9:59 AM

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.

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.

With Valtteri Filppula now part of the Flyers' long-term plans, it looks like Sean Couturier will be Philadelphia's third-line center for the foreseeable future.

Couturier has 398 NHL games under his belt and has recorded just 175 points over that span, but he's always been seen as someone with offensive upside. Now though, it looks like the Flyers are moving on from that hope. It's understandable given that Couturier hasn't made progress this season with just 16 points in 48 games (albeit partially due to the lingering effects of his MCL sprain), but the bottom line is that you shouldn't expect a big campaign from him in 2017-18 either given his more clearly cemented role.
Mar 7 - 6:10 AM

Sean Couturier scored the only Flyers goal of the night as they lost a 2-1 contest to the Capitals Saturday.

Couturier has not scored a goal since February 2 against the Canadiens. In these 11 games, he has earned only two assists and registered a -4. Couturier has not exactly burned up the ice in shots on goals either with only 19 in that span, but he turned the tide against the Caps and made five shots.
Mar 4 - 10:58 PM

Sean Couturier (illness) was fine to play on Thursday.

Couturier skipped Wednesday's practice due to the disease. He ended up logging 20:35 minutes Thursday night.
Mar 3 - 5:01 AM

Sean Couturier left Wednesday's practice due to illness.

So Flyers fans can relax if they were worried about him being traded. Couturier has posted nine goals and 17 points along with winning 54.7% of his draws through 46 games this season. He's considered day-to-day.
Mar 1 - 12:31 PM

Sean Couturier will play alongside Jordan Weal and Jakub Voracek on Saturday.

Couturier had been playing on a checking line with Nick Cousins and Matt Read, so this new arrangement obviously has far more offensive potential for him. Couturier has nine goals and 15 points in 39 contests this season.
Feb 11 - 6:42 AM

Sean Couturier scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Couturier registered the primary assist on Matt Read's game-winning goal in the third period before adding the empty netter in the final seconds. The 24-year-old is up to nine goals and 15 points in 36 games this season. He's still not worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 2 - 10:41 PM

Sean Couturier scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-4 shootout win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Couturier helped set up Travis Konecny's power play goal in the first period and he added one of his own in the second to give his team a 3-2 lead. Couturier finished tonight's game with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, five shots on goal and a blocked shot in 22:50 of ice time. He has eight goals and four assists in 28 games this season. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Brayden Schenn also scored for the Flyers, while Claude Giroux scored the winner in the shootout.
Jan 12 - 10:38 PM

Sean Couturier has been a consistent contributor to the Flyers over the years.

With his seventh goal of the season, and 10th point, the young veteran now has double-digit point totals in each of his six seasons in the bigs. Mighty impressive to say the least.
Jan 7 - 5:10 PM

Sean Couturier scored his sixth goal of the season in the Flyers 4-3 shootout loss to Anaheim Sunday.

Couturier returned to action three games ago after a 16 game absence due to a sprained MCL. He has nine points this season in 23 games. Couturier could have tied things up in the shootout but he missed in the fifth round while Corey Perry scored to give the Ducks the win. Couturier is a better hockey player than fantasy one and really should not be on a team unless it is a very deep league.
Jan 2 - 8:35 AM

Sean Couturier and his teammates could not put any pucks past Aaron Dell in a 2-0 loss on Friday.

Flyers had a hard time getting anything going against Dell and the Sharks, managing a combined 21 shots with Couturier leading the way with a total of four. The former 8th overall pick has eight points in 22 games this season and it is fair to wonder if his offensive game will ever develop to the level desired from a top-10 pick.
