San Jose Sharks center Logan Couture had surgery Wednesday for an upper-body injury and the team said he will begin rehabilitation immediately.

"Logan underwent successful surgery today by team orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Arthur Ting, and is expected to make a full recovery," general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement. "We look forward to getting him back in our lineup. No specific return date is set at this time."

Multiple media reports said the surgery was to fix a damaged hand, and Couture is expected to miss three-to-four weeks.

Couture, 24, has 14 goals and 21 assists in 43 games this season. He averages 19:28 of ice time.

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
