The Philadelphia Flyers are off to a hot start this season as the team has managed to collect four points from the Pittsburgh Penguins. Unfortunately, it’s come at a cost, as Friday night Sean Couturier was hit early on by Pens forward Jared McCann and he did not return.
The reigning Selke trophy winner and one of the Flyers best forwards is scheduled for an MRI on Saturday and not to speculate, but it appeared if there is an injury there, it’s likely a separated shoulder.
Injury update: Per AV, Sean Couturier will get an MRI on his shoulder on Saturday and have another update in a couple days.

These types of injuries normally take at least a month to heal so Flyers fans will be at the edge of their seat in anticipation of the diagnosis.
