Rookie Couturier Sticks with Flyers

Standard Spin: The 8th overall pick last June, Sean Couturier (58 GP, 96 points in the Q last year) has the height and the skill to be a dominant forward in the NHL for years to come; however the knock is that he needs to put on more man strength. Regardless, the Flyers have decided to keep him with the big club to see how he fairs over the first 9 games. There is definite potential here, bump him up the rookie rankings. (Oct.6)
