The Philadelphia Flyers will be without their top center in Sean Couturier for a little while as the Flyers announced on Saturday that he’ll miss two weeks with a Costochondral separation. In other words, he’s got a separated rib. On the surface, it’s not good news, but it could be much, much worse.

This is a huge loss for the Flyers as Couturier has been one of their top offensive performers over the last few seasons and he’s key in his two-way play as one of the best defensive forwards in the NHL. He wins a ton of important faceoffs and provides stability for the Flyers lineup on a nightly basis.

The Flyers swept their rival Pittsburgh Penguins in the two-game home set to start the 2020-21 season, but can only hope Couturier won’t be out much longer than the two weeks suggested. Couturier left during the first period of the Philadelphia Flyers’ 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday and underwent MRI on his right shoulder.

Last season’s Selke winner had 59 points across 69 games in 2019-20. He has an assist in two games this year.
