Every time the Flyers name came up in trade rumors – whether it was at the trade deadline last season or leading up to the draft and free agency – one name was constantly in the discussion:

Sean Couturier.

There’s no question that every other team that the Flyers talked turkey with coveted the 20-year-old forward. And there was no question that Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren had no intention of trading his talented two-way center.

Evidence of that came further to light Saturday, when the Flyers signed Couturier to a two-year contract extension.

Couturier, who is entering the final year of his entry level contract, inked a new deal with an annual cap hit of $1.75 million in the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons.

After a breakout rookie season in 2011-12 after the Flyers selected him with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Couturier had four goals an 11 assists for 15 points in 46 games last season.
