Couturier expected to be 'full go' by end of Flyers' preseason

NHL training camps get underway on Thursday, but how much preseason action will be seen by Philadelphia Flyers centre Sean Couturier remains to be seen.

Couturier has been sidelined with a lower body injury he suffered in August, and says he'd like to get a few preseason games in before the Flyers' regular season begins in October.

The 25-year-old says he feels fine but that he and the team are being cautious to ensure the injury heals completely.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said Wednesday he expects Couturier to be a 'full go' towards the end of the preseason.
