Flyers center Sean Couturier became the third Flyers player to be chosen as the NHL's top defensive forward when he was awarded the Frank J. Selke Trophy on Thursday night.

"It's one thing to produce offensively, but if you want to be out on the ice when you're up a goal late in the game, you've got to learn to be responsible defensively, and it's always something I've tried to take pride in," Couturier said. "Obviously over the last few years I've kind of taken my offensive side of the game to another level."
