Sean Couturier Six years $26 million ($4.33-million AAV) Signed July 28, 2015, runs through the 2021-22 season
For context, Couturier signed this deal with the Flyers one year before the expiration of his bridge deal (smart move by former GM Ron Hextall).
He was coming off a 37-point season in 2014-15 when he signed, which was followed by 39 points in 2015-16 and 34 points in 2016-17.
Of course, in the early years of his career, he was mostly used as a defensive, shutdown guy, getting very little opportunity offensively.
Then came back-to-back, 76-point seasons as his 200-foot game grew along with the opportunities and usage.
The perennial Selke Trophy candidate is impactful at both ends of the ice, as smart as they come and he’s a monster bargain for another two and a half years.
