Philadelphia Flyers forward Sean Couturier will be sidelined four-to-six weeks with a lower-body injury, general manager Ron Hextall announced Wednesday. CSN Philly's Tim Panaccio reports the injury is a sprained knee.

Couturier suffered the injury Tuesday versus the Florida Panthers, leaving after just seven minutes of ice time.

The 23-year-old has appeared in all 20 games this season, scoring five goals and collecting three assists.

It's a familiar injury for the Flyers. Earlier in November, the team announced that injured goaltender Michal Neuvirth would miss four-to-six weeks, which Panaccio also reported was due to a sprained knee. Neuvirth has missed the last four games.

The Flyers sit sixth in the Metropolitan Division with a 9-8-3 record through 20 games.
