Philadelphia Flyers forward Sean Couturier has been awarded the Selke Trophy as the NHL's best defensive forward. 

Check it out: 

Couturier led all NHLers in face off percentage (59.6%) and finished second in defensive zone face off percentage. The guy is a killer in the dot. And with a game that's becoming increasingly reliant on zone play as opposed to rush play, a player like Couturier is very versatile. He led all Flyers in ice time per game and shorthanded ice time.  

He posted 22 goals and 59 points in 69 regular season games and nine points in 15 post-season games.
