NHL Rumors: Latest Update on Flyers Sean Couturier

If the Philadelphia Flyers are going to bounce back in 2022-23, forward Sean Couturier will need to be an impact player. Good news Flyers fans, 'Couts' is feeling up to the challenge and is heading into training camp healthier than ever.

Couturier was banged up in 2021-22, dealing with a number of injuries including an upper-body injury and he underwent back surgery on Feb.11 which ended his season. The Flyers center only managed to play 29 games last season, recording 17 points.

There's a new bench boss in Philly as John Tortorella has already been making headlines. Torts admitted he has no idea who is going to be the new captain and he's not ready to name one because of how much the dressing room needs to change. 

As for Couturier, he recently met with the media and had this to say about his comeback season:

I feel good. I had a long recovery. (It) took longer than I thought, a lot of ups and downs, but now I'm feeling good and ready to go. Excited to get going again. I want to prove that I'm healthy again and I can be back to the player I am, that I was, and maybe even better. I'm going to push myself. I think (new coach John Tortorella) is here to kind of do that, push ourselves, make it a tough camp, a lot of skating, and see if we're in shape.

The Flyers finished last season with a record of 25-46-11. If that happens again this season, the Torts sound bites are going to be amazing!
