    Flyers' Sean Couturier: Lands on IR

    Couturier (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Couturier is expected to miss four weeks with his lower-body injury, so this comes as no surprise. Philly has rattled off three straight wins and hopefully -- if you're a fan of the Orange & Black -- Couturier's absence doesn't seriously disrupt the positive momentum. Still, that could be wishful thinking as Couturier is a proficient line defender and has a playmaker's touch, having collected a helper in each of his past three games and notching 24 points in 40 contests on the year. As a testament to his solid two-way play, Couturier is also plus-9 on the year which is a stark contrast to the Flyers' minus-13 goal differential.

    Flyers' Sean Couturier: Out four weeks with lower-body injury

    Couturier will miss four weeks with a lower-body injury, Kyle Phillippi of CSN Philly reports. Couturier, a proficient two-way forward, had missed three games before the All-Star break due to a lower-body injury, which we suspect is related to this latest setback. The 23-year-old logged 17:44 of ice time against the Canadiens in the first game after the break but was limited to just 11:35 in his most recent showing, a win over the Predators on Thursday. The last series of games that Couturier missed, the Flyers went 1-2-0 and that's an ominous sign for a Flyers team trying to stay competitive in a Metropolitan Division that only has one team with a losing record (Columbus: 20-28-5).

    Flyers' Sean Couturier: Set to return Tuesday

    Couturier (lower body) will return for Tuesday's tilt against the Canadiens, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports. Couturier had been held out of the club's last three games with a lower-body ailment, but the time off from the All-Star break was apparently enough for the 23-year-old to heal up. He's slated to slot into a top-six role, skating alongside Sam Gagner and Brayden Schenn on the team's second line.

    Flyers' Sean Couturier: Expected back Tuesday

    Couturier (lower body) is expected to rejoin the lineup Tuesday against the Canadiens, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports. Couturier has been sidelined since Jan. 21 with the lower-body ailment, but should provide an offensive boost in his return to the lineup Tuesday assuming that's the case. The veteran forward has 22 points in 38 games this season, and should be amongst the team's top-six forwards in his return.

    Couturier (lower body) is on injured reserve, according to the NHL's official media site.

His move to injured reserve largely went unreported with the league focusing heavily on All-Star weekend, which runs from Jan. 30-31.

    Flyers' Sean Couturier: Ruled out Wednesday

    Couturier (lower body) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Capitals. Couturier was listed as doubtful for the contest coming into the day, so the fact that he's been officially ruled out shouldn't come as much of a surprise. The Flyers may make a couple changes for Tuesday's lineup, but there shouldn't be any major shakeups with the same bodies available. It's the team's last contest before the All-Star break, and it wouldn't be surprising if Couturier rejoins the lineup when the team next takes the ice Feb. 2 to face the Canadiens.

    Flyers' Sean Couturier: Doubtful Wednesday

    Couturier (lower body) is doubtful to play in Wednesday's game against the Capitals, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Couturier has been held out of the team's last three games and has yet to return to practice, so it appears unlikely he'll be able to lace up Wednesday. He'll get extra time to rest with the All Star break approaching, so he could be ready to return to the lineup next Tuesday against the Canadiens.

His next chance to return to the ice will come Wednesday when the Flyers play at Washington.

    Flyers' Sean Couturier: Out Thursday with lower-body ailment

    Couturier will not play Thursday night against the Penguins due to a lower-body injury, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports. This is an unfortunate turn of events for the Flyers as Couturier has been known to frustrate Evgeni Malkin and the Pens with his agitating style of defense. Couturier is also above average when it comes to offense, having contributed nine goals and 13 assists in 38 games. It's possible that center Jordan Weal, acquired from the Kings on Jan. 6, could take Couturier's spot in the lineup Thursday.

    Flyers' Sean Couturier: Adds goal, assist in win

    Couturier picked up two points in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens. Couturier continued his recent hot streak Tuesday, and now has five points in his last four games. The center is still just 23 years old, and with seven goals and 10 assists through 32 games, he's on pace for the highest offensive output of his career.
