Couturier's agent gets involved on recent issues

Published March 21, 2024 at 10:24 PM

John Tortorella decided to sit his captain Sean Couturier in the stands for the last two games and the hockey world has not stopped talking about it ever since.

Yesterday, Couturier's agent decided to voice his opinion on the matter. He said that a coach needs a captain to speak to the team and communicate his message to the players. He added that Couturier is a leader that the team needs and has been dedicated to the Flyers since Day 1.

«With your captain, you have to work together as a team. You want to send a message to the other guys, it has to go through your captain and your assistant. So now you're not communicating with him. So, OK, what's next?»

Clearly Couturier and Torts have a lot to figure out so that the team can move forward. This may be a strategy by Torts but it will be hard to focus on the playoffs in a few weeks with all this drama in the locker room.
