It appears Logan Couture is going to remain with the San Jose Sharks for a while.

Multiple sources are reporting the 24-year-old center has agreed to a new deal. According to ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, it is a five-year extension.

Couture had 21 goals and 16 assists in 48 games during the 2012-13 season for San Jose and added five goals and six assists in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
