The 2017-18 season has been kind to Phladelphia Flyers forward Sean Couturier thus far. Through 10 games, the 25-year-old has already amassed seven goals and 12 points while suiting up on a dominant top line featuring Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek. The trio has combined for 37 total points already, with the next test coming against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. But while the offence is coming easy to Couturier, another prominent aspect of his game has become more complicated. The new season has already seen plenty of controversy surrounding stricter enforcements of the league’s faceoff rules, and Couturier said he’s just as frustrated as everyone else.
