"Last week, Logan underwent successful surgery to repair a hand injury suffered in a fight in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against Mike Richards," general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement. "The procedure went as expected and Logan will be ready for the start of training camp."
Couture played in Game 7 of the Western Conference First Round against the Los Angeles Kings, which the Sharks lost to lose the series after leading it 3-0.
Couture had 54 points (23 goals) and was plus-21 in 65 regular-season games. The 25-year-old had three points in seven playoff games.
Defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic told the San Jose Mercury News he would be ready for camp after sustaining an upper-body and a knee injury in Game 5 against the Kings. He did not play in Games 6 or 7.
"It's a question of time; it's the exact same (knee) injury I had two years ago at the World Championships (sprained MCL) and it takes six to eight weeks to heal,” Vlasic said. "If I take care of it now, I should be 100 percent come training camp."
