Couturier recorded a career-high 76 points this season, centering the top line after Claude Giroux moved to the wing. Couturier’s 31 goals and 45 assists were personal bests and doubled what he recorded the previous year.
The 25-year-old was second among all NHL forwards in total ice time (1,770:31) and third in average ice time per game (21:35). Couturier was also the best puck possession player on the Flyers, finishing with a 53.2 percent CF% at 5-on-5.
The NHL Awards winners will be announced in Las Vegas on June 20th.
