Sharks Announce New Team Captain and Alternate Captains

by San Jose Sharks @SanJoseSharks / sjsharks.com

SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) Head Coach Peter DeBoer announced today that Logan Couture (@Logancouture) has been named the tenth captain in Sharks franchise history. Along with Couture, Brent Burns (@Burnzie88), Tomas Hertl (@TomasHertl48), Erik Karlsson (@ErikKarlsson65), and Joe Thornton will each serve as alternate captains.

"Since I arrived in San Jose four seasons ago, we have been blessed with a tremendous amount of leadership on our roster," said DeBoer. "Logan has grown up within that environment and evolved into someone who not only plays his best hockey when it matters the most, but who also leads by example off the ice. He knows what it takes to win and his performance in our recent playoff runs reflects that. Most importantly, Logan has the respect of his teammates and we're extremely proud to name him as the tenth captain of the San Jose Sharks."

Couture, 30, enters his 11th season as a member of the Sharks after being selected in the first round (9th overall) by San Jose in the 2007 NHL Draft. The centerman registered a career-best 70 points (27 goals, 43 assists) last season, finishing second on the team in assists and third in points. In the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Couture led all skaters in goals with 14, despite playing six fewer games than the second and third place finishers. He also completed the playoff run with 20 points, compiling 101 career playoff points over the first 10 years of his career which is fourth among skaters since the 2010 postseason. His 48 goals in that span are second-most among NHL skaters, two behind Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.
