Catching the eye of the media for their amazing hockey, The Philadelphia Flyers are having an unexpected surge this season, currently 3rd in the Metropolitan Division with 64 points playing amazing hockey. They have made the news today for a leadership change, brought up by coach John Torterella.

Flyers name Sean Couturier as team Captain



After having no captain throughout the last two seasons since Claude Giroux's departure, the Flyers announced their new captain today, veteran Sean Couturier. Couturier missed the whole 2022-23 season due to a major injury, definitely a feel good story for him!




"Sean Couturier is an ideal choice to be the next leader of the Philadelphia Flyers," said Flyers General Manager, Daniel Briere. "Sean was drafted here and has made Philadelphia his home. I have personally seen his development from a responsible forward to one of the best two-way centermen in the game and a playoff performer. The adversity he has had to overcome has only strengthened his proven leadership. In this New Era of Orange with Dan Hilferty, Keith Jones and John Tortorella at the helm, we couldn't be more proud to call him captain."

«It's such a great honor. It's a really prestigious organization so this makes it even more special. This city is my home and I love it here,» said Couturier. «It's going to be business as usual for me. Nothing is really going to change from me or my game and how I approach things. I love my teammates, how we have grown as a group and I want to make sure we keep going on the right path here.»
