More about Sean Couturier
Though at one point Sean Couturier was ranked as high as #1 by NHL Central Scouting by the time the 2011 NHL Entry Draft got underway Couturier had seen his stock drop and it turned out he had to wait until the 8th pick before he was finally selected by the Philadelphia Flyers. However, going number eight is certainly nothing to sneeze at, particularly in a draft class that strong. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Gabriel Landeskog and Jonathan Huberdeau, all of whom were taken ahead of Couturier, have all been impact players for their respective clubs so far.
Though he was an offensive star for the Drummondville Voltegeurs, notching 192 points in his final two seasons with the QMJHL club, Couturier has carved a niche for himself in the NHL as a shutdown defensive player. In fact, in their first round match-up with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2011-12 playoffs, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette showed surprising confidence in Couturier, still a rookie at the time, giving him the monumentally difficult assignment of trying to shut down Penguins' superstar Evgeni Malkin. Couturier performed admirably, getting under Malkin's skin and helping his Flyers beat the Pens in six games.
This year, Couturier continues to excel in his defensive role, leaving the offense to teammates like Claude Giroux, Daniel Briere, Scott Hartnell and Brayden Schenn. However, Couturier has shown in the past that he has the talent to play the offensive side of the game, and you can bet as he gets more experience and confidence under his belt that he will begin to make more of an impact on the scoresheet. Don't be surprised to see him grow into one of the game's best two-way forwards in the mold of players like Ryan Kesler or Jordan Staal.
