Philadelphia Flyers centre Sean Couturier left in the first period of the team's 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins and will get an MRI on his shoulder, coach Alain Vigneault told reporters after the game.

The examination will take place Saturday and the team expects to have another update in a couple of days.

It is unclear when Couturier suffered the injury.

Last season's Selke winner had 59 points across 69 games in 2019-20. He has an assist in two games this year.
