Sean Couturier has become one the NHL's best defensive centers and is getting some Selke Trophy buzz.

He has been extremely effective in shutting down the NHL's top offensive centers such as Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Jonathan Toews. That makes him a highly-praised NHL player. But with only 10 goals and 35 points this season, he is barely rosterable in fantasy hockey circles.

Philadelphia center Sean Couturier, a little more than three months removed from his 21st birthday, is becoming one of the top centers in the NHL and, in a 4-0 victory for Philadelphia over Pittsburgh Saturday, he outshone the game's top player, Sidney Crosby.

Couturier assisted on two of the Flyers' three goals and won six of eight faceoffs against the Penguins' captain. Crosby finished the day at minus-3. He has been a minus-3 or worse only two other times this season. Veteran Flyer Claude Giroux on Couturier: "There's a little thing - when he plays Pittsburgh, he just plays better."

Sean Couturier will be in the Philadelphia Flyers lineup after missing practice Saturday to attend his grandmother's funeral.

Couturier had been hot of late with 10 points in nine games but has only one assist in his last four games with a minus-six rating and 19 penalty minutes. He has five goals and 15 points in 29 games with a plus-four rating and 29 penalty minutes so he is worth owning in deeper leagues. Our condolences to the Couturier family on their loss.

Poolies should keep a close eye on Sean Couturier as he's posted 10 points during his last nine contests.

Couts has been red-hot during the last nine games, which has seen him take a big leap in his development. One of the primary reasons for the big boost in offensive production is due to a spike in ice time. During this span, Couturier is averaging 19:55 per contest, which trails only Claude Giroux in terms of ice-time by a Flyer forward. Another big reason for the offensive boost is the shots on goal, he's averaging 2.7 shots on goal which is a decent number to post to justify his production. One downside however, is his lack of power-play ice-time, as he garners just 47 seconds per contest. If he can ever get into that two-three minute range, his production could skyrocket. If you're looking for help up the middle definitely consider Couts!
