Flyers forward Sean Couturier was named the winner of the Frank J. Selke Memorial Trophy, presented annually to “the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game," for the 2019-20 season on Thursday.
Sean Couturier came out ahead in the midseason voting for the Selke Trophy, beating out O’Reilly, who came in third, and Patrice Bergeron, the four-time Selke winner, who finished second. That prompted the thought: could this finally be Couturier’s year to receive some much-deserved hardware?
The Flyers next game comes against another team outside of playoff position. The Los Angeles Kings come to town on Saturday night and it is a game the Flyers certainly feel the need to come away with a better result.
