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.
