Sean Couturier News
Philadelphia Flyers center Sean Couturier has undergone back revision surgery and will be unable to play for 3-4 months. Couturier's season debut has been delayed because of a back problem and sadly we won't be seeing him for quite a while. He also had season-ending back surgery in February, so talk about bad luck. Couturier's last game was on Dec. 18, 2021, meaning he will have been out of action for over 12 months when he has completed his recovery from his latest back surgery. The Flyers have somehow gone 5-2-0 at the start of the season without him and Cam Atkinson (upper body), who also hasn't yet played this season and remains without a return date. Kevin Hayes and Scott Laughton have been the top-six centers with Couturier unavailable, while Atkinson's absence has opened up opportunities to the likes of Owen Tippett and Noah Cates.
Philadelphia Flyers center Sean Couturier won't need surgery to fix a back issue and the team considers him week-to-week. The 29-year-old already had back surgery in February, which ended his 2021-22 campaign early, so it's great news that he doesn't need to go under the knife again. Couturier managed to produce six goals and 17 points in 29 games last term before his campaign was cut short by injury. He'll be expected to do much better in 2022-23 once he's healthy, with Claude Giroux having moved on and a big eight-year extension taking effect.
Philadelphia Flyers center Sean Couturier has reportedly suffered a herniated disc in his back and is set to miss the start of the 2022-23 NHL season. Early reports are suggesting that the 29-year-old will be sidelined for 12 weeks. Couturier already missed a large chunk of last season with a back injury, so this is a bitter blow for the two-time 30-goal scorer. He managed just 29 games in 2021-22, scoring six goals and dishing out 11 assists. Couturier had four very prolific seasons before getting bitten badly by the injury bug last term and the team going through a really rough campaign. He should be able to enjoy a nice bounce-back campaign once he's back healthy.
Philadelphia Flyers center Sean Couturier (back) is out for the remainder of the season after undergoing back surgery on Friday. Couturier last played on December 18 and appeared in only 29 games this season, totaling six goals, 11 assists and 17 points. Couturier is expected to need three months to recover from the surgery and he should be ready for the start of next season, as he enters the first year of an eight-year, $62 million contract extension that he signed in the offseason.
