It seems like Philadelphia Flyers center Sean Couturier is getting a little bruised and battered during the pre-season.

Most recently, the Flyers announced that Couturier is day-to-day with an upper-body injury on Monday.

That might not be the only thing that’s ailing the 22-year-old, as Flyers beat writers including CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio batted around the idea that the two-way forward may have also hurt his knee/lower body at some recent point:

NHL teams seem content with throwing up smoke screens about injuries more or less all year round now, so maybe the most useful thing to key on is “day-to-day.”

With the regular season rapidly approaching, Couturier’s health will be one of the Flyers’ issues to monitor.
