Couturier preps to avoid sophomore slump|text|Flyers

Despite following a standout rookie NHL season with some well-earned down time, Couturier put his body through a lot of offseason training. Frequent trips to a Drummondville gym led to Couturier adding five pounds of muscle onto his body. Last season, he was a borderline-skinny 199 pounds. Hes now a sturdy 204 and looks 220. Meantime, he signed up for a few 1-on-1 power-skating sessions in an attempt to improve a part of his game already considered a strength.
A goal this coming season, Couturier maintains, is to improve upon his 13 goals and 27 points without sacrificing anything that already has earned him a reputation as an elite shutdown center, which is pretty darned impressive for someone of his age and short NHL resume.
AWESOME news..
