Couturier left Wednesday’s game with an apparent head injury and did not return.
Couturier had to be helped off of the ice during the Flyers win over the Bruins on Wednesday. He was hit high by Bruins forward and former teammate Zac Rinaldo. Couturier may have suffered a concussion, which could keep him out of Saturday’s game vs. the Rangers. Monitor his status leading up to that contest.
Couturier (illness) is on the ice for the Flyers morning skate.
Couturier was not on the ice on Wednesday because of a stomach virus, but he is back out there today and should play tonight. The young centre has recorded three goals and two assists (5 points) in 12 games this season.
The Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension with forward Sean Couturier worth $3.5 million, an average annual value of $1.75 million. The contract will take effect in 2014-15, after the expiration of Couturier's entry-level contract.
The 20-year-old had four goals and 15 points in 46 games last season, his second with the Flyers, while averaging 15:53 of ice time. He appeared in 31 games with the Flyers' American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, prior to the start of the Flyers' season in January. He scored 10 goals and had 28 points with the Phantoms.
It appears Flyers rookie center Sean Couturier will play tonight against the Devils in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals at Prudential Center after leaving Game 3 on Thursday with an apparent left leg injury.
It appears as if Couturier will not miss any time.
