Couture has missed the past 16 games after undergoing surgery on his right hand on Jan. 8. He sustained the injury in a game against the Los Angeles Kings on Dec. 19, but played through it for nearly three weeks.
"I'm ready to go in three or four days, whatever it is. Feels good as its felt in three months," Couture told CSNBayArea.com on Sunday.
Couture ranks fourth on the Sharks with 35 points (14 goals, 21 assists) in 43 games.
I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
