Sharks lose Havlat to injury; Couture returns
The San Jose Sharks were without two of their key forwards, Logan Couture and Martin Havlat, due to injury during Game 3 of their Western Conference Semifinal series against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

The San Jose Sharks were without two of their key forwards, Logan Couture and Martin Havlat, due to injury during Game 3 of their Western Conference Semifinal series against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

Couture was favoring his left leg as he skated to the bench following a collision midway through the second period. He went to the dressing room after playing 7:41, then returned late in the period.

Havlat did not return to the ice with the team for the start of the second period after playing 4:52 of the first. He had missed the first two games of the series, and the final three of the first round, with a lower-body injury.

The Sharks did not disclose the injury suffered by either player but said each was evaluated.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
