Flyers' Couturier playing well in AHL

Phillip MacCallum

From Frank Seravalli of Philly.com: Sean Couturier of the Philadelphia Flyers, the No. 8 pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, is playing well in the AHL while the NHL is locked out.

For a player who made his living last year in the NHL as an 18-year-old in the trenches - killing penalties and winning defensive battles on the fourth line - those numbers are important. Couturier is second on the team, behind Brayden Schenn, with 15 points. He had five goals in the first nine games of November, compared to just one in the first month of the season.

Before heading to Adirondack in October, Couturier said he wanted to hone the offensive side of his game.

"It's going pretty well," Couturier said. "I'm getting [scoring] chances pretty much every game, which is something I couldn't say in the NHL. I'm looking to produce even more the rest of the season."
