SEAN COUTURIER stepped onto the ice last night for an offseason workout in Drummondville, Quebec - where he played his junior hockey - and did so knowing he had some newfound security in his life. The Flyers' first-round pick in the 2011 draft, chosen eighth overall, was entering the final year of a two-year, $3.5 million contract that would have left him as a restricted free agent following the 2015-16 season. Now, he's signed through 2022. The Flyers and Couturier agreed on a reported six-year extension worth about $26 million.

NEWARK, N.J. - Based on their seven exhibition games and their season-opening, 2-1 win in Boston on Thursday, maybe the Flyers slogan should be, "The Kids Are All Right. " It's unusual to thrust a rookie onto the penalty-killing units, but that's what coach Peter Laviolette did with forwards Sean Couturier and Matt Read - and both were effective in the hard-fought victory over the defending Stanley Cup champions. Couturier, who is just 18, played more time on the penalty kill (4 minutes, 34 seconds)

SEAN COUTURIER arrived back in Quebec on Monday night with a World Championships gold medal, a new coach for the Flyers and a brimming level of confidence. He just didn't have any clue that his solid three-week run for Team Canada in Prague with teammates Claude Giroux and Brayden Schenn turned so many heads around the hockey world. "There weren't many North American media covering the tournament, so I didn't have that much of a sense," Couturier said. "The only thing I felt as the tournament went on was that I gained more and more trust from the coaching staff.

Flyers forwards Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier were added to Canada's roster Thursday for the IIHF world championships in Prague, Czech Republic. They will join teammate Claude Giroux on Team Canada, which starts play May 1 against Latvia.

So what went wrong this season and where do the Flyers go from here? The first part of the question is the easiest to answer: The Flyers didn't get enough secondary scoring, struggled mightily in close games, and couldn't find a way to win on the road. That's the abbreviated version on why the Flyers finished 33-31-18, missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons, and wasted career years by right winger Jake Voracek (81 points) and goalie Steve Mason (.928 save percentage)

THIS WAS always the situation the Flyers and their two top-line stars would be in when this offseason started. Jakub Voracek's 81 points last season and three straight seasons of solid production made it obvious he wasn't going to hit free agency when his four-year deal ran out after next season. The only question that needed an answer was how much the right wing, who turns 26 next Saturday, would command from the Flyers. That question was answered last week when general manager Ron Hextall locked in the Czech Republic native by extending him through the 2024 season with a salary-cap hit of $8.25 million per year, just under the $8.275 million of his linemate, captain Claude Giroux.

The Flyers locked up Jake Voracek for the long term Thursday, signing the forward to a reported eight-year, $66 million contract extension. Voracek was golfing when he heard the news and joked that it messed up his game. But missed putts aside, the 25-year-old is excited about the extension. "I knew something was going to get done," Voracek said on a conference call Thursday. ". . . It's good that it came this early, so now we can focus on everything else. " Voracek, who led the Flyers with a career-high 81 points last season, still has one year left on his four-year, $17 million contract.

Center Scott Laughton seemed out of place doing drills with Sam Dove-McFalls, David Kase, and Travis Konecny, among others, during the Flyers' development camp Thursday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. The latter three players, all 18 years old, were selected in the NHL draft last month. Laughton, at 21, is in his fourth development camp since he was a first-round pick (20th overall) in 2012. "I feel like the old guy here a little bit," Laughton, who appears more physically fit than last year, said with a smile.

For those expecting general manager Ron Hextall to continue his magic and quickly make the Flyers a contender, well, reality struck when the first day of free agency arrived Wednesday and the team was able to add only a backup goaltender. In other words, it's going to take Hextall time to climb out of the salary-cap hole he inherited. The Flyers have about $4.5 million in cap space and still need to re-sign restricted free agent Michael Del Zotto. The Flyers made a $1.3 million qualifying offer to the defenseman, but a much heftier, multiyear deal is being discussed.

Center Sam Gagner is staying with the Flyers and it seems like a low-risk, high-reward gamble. The Flyers' free-agency plans came into better focus Tuesday when they decided to retain Gagner, who was acquired Saturday from Arizona. Gagner, 25, has underachieved during his eight-year career but led Coyotes forwards in goals (15) and points (41) last season. He could center the second line or play wing. General manager Ron Hextall had been considering buying out Gagner's contract.

THE OBVIOUS first and second overall picks at this weekend's NHL draft, in order, are Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel. That's been the consensus for a long time now. But the talent pool doesn't stop with those two offensive juggernauts. NHL scouts and experts believe this could be one of the most talented groups in recent history, which makes it a pretty good time for the Flyers to own two first-round draft picks. The Flyers, who finished 33-31-18 this season, will pick seventh overall.
