2011 Player Media Tour
Couture just excited to be in New York
As one of the new guys on this year's NHL Player Media Tour, 22-year-old Logan Couture is just along for the ride.

In the below video, he discusses his undying love for the Toronto Blue Jays, confesses his lack of style, and divulges which fellow NHL player he is most excited to meet on the Player Media Tour.


This is actually the young center's second visit to the Big Apple; the Sharks spent a day in New York last season after playing a game across the river in New Jersey.

"Jumbo (Joe Thornton) wanted to go shopping, so we walked through all of these shopping spots with him and I just stared at all of these expensive shoes," Couture said.

Although he saw some of the sights on his first visit, he is excited to check out ground zero while he is here, especially since it's so close to the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedy.
Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
