TORONTO -- Philadelphia Flyers forward Sean Couturier was unexpectedly not in the lineup for Monday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. After taking the morning skate early Monday, the 20-year-old forward was not on the ice for the pre-game skate.
The Flyers have yet to comment as to why Couturier was scratched. He was expected to play center between Matt Read and Mike Knuble.
Couturier has not missed any of the Flyers' 12 games this season. He has two goals and three assists over that span.
