San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture has surgery

SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture had surgery Wednesday to repair what is believed to be a hand injury.

The Sharks have said only that Couture has an upper-body injury.

Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said no specific return date has been set.

Couture has 14 goals and 21 assists in 43 games this season. After going 11 straight games without a goal, Couture recently scored in four straight. That streak was snapped Sunday in Chicago, but he still had an assist and the shootout winner.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
