I don't really like making player comparisons (I don't watch Hanzal or Handzus enough to make that call). I can see why people might reference Couturier though.

Gauthier is a two way player and a smart one at that. I actually think he sacrifices a bit in offensive efficiency to be more responsible in his own end. The advantage there is I think he's very projectable, he could fill many different roles in a lineup.
