Words can not describe how weird/awkward it was to type the words "Phantoms' Couturier". Anyway, the Adirondack Phantoms opened their training camp today at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ.  Amongst the locked-out Flyers to be joining their AHL affiliate is 19-year-old sensation Sean Couturier. Couturier, who was drafted 8th overall in 2011 by the Flyers, had a phenomenal rookie campaign having put up a combined 31 points on the season. Although he is not a player known for his flashy offensive ability, his two-way, defensive style of play made him one of the best of last year's rookie class. Now the young Flyer has a chance to improve his skills during his time with the Phantoms. He was excited to be back on the ice at training camp this morning. "I’m happy to be on the ice and to get some real practices going and get the tempo up. It feels good and im looking forward to starting the year", Couturier said. Over the summer, Sean has been playing a lot of hockey, trying to become a better player each day. "I've been training hard this summer trying to gain some weight and gain some strength to get stronger and faster and I'm coming into camp ready and hopefully I can show what I've improved on", he stated. Last year, Sean Couturier played a special role for the Flyers. He saw time centering the third and fourth lines, was used on the penalty kill, and was given the role of covering the superstars of other teams.  Like many fans, Couturier thinks that along with his strong defensive play, he has a lot to offer offensively, and hopes to do so this season. "I think I can show my offensive side of the game coming into my second year of pro hockey. Last year was a lot of adaption for me and this year I want to show more of my offensive side of the game" You can see Sean Couturier and the rest of the locked-out Flyers throughout the week at Phantoms Training Camp.
