The Flyers top-line forward lasted 45 seconds in Friday’s game before exiting the game. Sean Couturier took a high hit from Jared McCann, collided with the boards and was seen on the bench flexing his shoulder in pain.
The Flyers announced on Saturday that Couturier will be out for a minimum of two weeks with a Costochondral separation. A Costochondral separation is described as an injury that “occurs when your rib tears away from the cartilage that connects it to your breastbone. This type of injury is usually caused by a sudden impact to your chest.”
