So, the Flyers’ Sean Couturier reinjured the knee he dinged during the playoff series with the Pens last April, and now he is rehabbing:

“One day at a time,” Couturier said yesterday during training camp in Voorhees. “We’re being cautious, making sure it’s 100 percent. I’m feeling really positive.”

Couturier had a career season in 2017-18, collecting 31 goals and 76 points. He figures to skate with a knee brace all this season.

“It’s different. It’s a bigger part of gear or equipment on you,” said Couturier, who hopes to be at 100 percent for the Oct. 4 opener in Vegas. “You kind of have to get used to it. I’m in the process of doing that. I have a lot of time to get used to it.”

“Honestly, I feel really good,” he said. “Like I said, we’re going to be cautious and not push it. Still probably going to be skating on my own for a week or two and go from there.”

On how he reinjured the knee:

“It’s a charity game, but it’s like a high-level tournament where basically all the guys from Quebec meet up and play games all weekend to see where we are at in our summer training …and push each other,” he said. “They raise money for charity doing that. It’s kind of part of the training, so, yeah, you are cautious. But at the same time, I’m not just going to sit back on my couch all summer and show up to camp.”
