A Multi-Year Extension For Sean Couturier In Philadelphia

from the Phiadelphia Flyers,

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have signed 6-3, 197-lb center Sean Couturier to a multi-year contract extension, according to general manager Ron Hextall.

Couturier, 22 (12/7/1992), recorded a career-high 15 goals and added 22 assists for 37 points in 82 games for the Flyers in 2014-15. Following the season, Couturier helped lead Team Canada to the gold medal at the 2015 IIHF World Championships where he recorded three goals and added four assists for seven points in 10 games.

Couturier appeared in all 82 games for the second consecutive season and has appeared in 287 out of a possible 294 NHL games. He has also appeared in 198 consecutive games, which is the third-most active streak on the Flyers (Jakub Voracek: 226 & Brayden Schenn: 208).

Apologies on Couturier—did the math wrong. Six year deal carries $4.33M AAV.

This makes the Nyquist signing look like the deal of the century. Couturier scored 15 goals and was two short of his career best of 39 points. Compare that to Gus’ 27 goals and 54 points in the same number of games with an AAV of $4.75M. And neither have done diddly-squat in the playoffs.

Right now, I guess Holland gets a point for the Nyquist signing. Now let’s see what each of these guys does this year and in the three years after that.
