Report: Flyers' Couturier sent home with flu

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Philadelphia Flyers center Sean Couturier has been sent home from the team's road trip due to the flu, with forward Harry Zolnierczyk recalled from the club's American Hockey League team to replace him.

Couturier was a late scratch from Monday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs due to the flu. It was the first game of a six-game road trip that continues Tuesday at the Winnipeg Jets.

Zolnierczyk, 25, has nine goals and eight assists in 46 games with the Adirondack Phantoms this season. He split last season between the Phantoms and Flyers, totaling three goals and three assists in 37 NHL games.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
