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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
