Philadelphia Flyers’ Sean Couturier Won’t Require Surgery After All

According to, despite Sean Couturier’s back injury, the Philadelphia Flyers were able to get one positive note out of the situation on Wednesday, Couturier will not require surgery after all. He still remains week to week, with a bit of an indefinite timeline as far as his recovery. Which is great news considering last season he underwent back surgery that took him out of the rest of the season, leaving him playing only 29 games over the season.

According to Flyer general manager Chuck Fletcher, “He woke up one morning and was in a little more discomfort than normal, I know over the course of the summer, he was improving, but yet from time to time, he had some nerve irritation in his glutes. He was told that it was a normal part of the process, continue to train. At some point over the last week, things deteriorated and it got to the point where he was not sleeping as well and experiencing some pain.”

With Flyers’ injuries to Couturier and Patrick Brown, the Flyers’ center position depth is lacking before game one. The Flyers are set to open their regular season on October 13th, against the Devils at the Wells Fargo Center.
