THE SKINNY:
Sean Couturier, ranked number six by C.S.S.’s final rankings, is a well decorated junior player. His 96 point season, which was tied for fourth overall in the QMJHL, helped earn him league MVP, Top 2011 Draft Prospect, and a selection as a First-Team All-Star. Courturier was second in the league with a plus-55 rating, and became the youngest and only draft-eligible player to be selected to team Canada at the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championships.

His father, Sylvain, played 33 games for the Los Angeles Kings and is now the GM for the Acadie-Bathurst Titans of the QMJHL. Sylvain was drafted 65th overall by the Kings in 1986.  

NHL Central Scouting's Chris Bordeleau: "At his size, he'll be hard to pass up in the draft. He possesses a very good work ethic and he's out there for every important faceoff. He's very responsible in the defensive aspect of the game -- a rare quality for such a young player in junior hockey."

NHL Central Scouting's Chris Edwards: "Sean has excellent puckhandling and playmaking ability; he sees the ice and reads the play very well . . . He's extremely smart and gets himself into good scoring position. He plays a solid two-way game and is very responsible defensively."

NEWS:
No Step Lost With Couturier
(5.11.11) Just because Drummondville Voltigeurs (QMJHL) center Sean Couturier slipped from No. 2 to No. 6 in NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of the top North American skaters available for the 2011 Entry Draft, it doesn't mean he's lost a step.
 
When the scouts voted to determine their top 10 during the final meetings in Toronto, the overwhelming theme was that the five players ahead of Couturier earned their positions with superior play over the second half of the season. Couturier, meanwhile, remained consistently steady.”
