Shark Life: Casino Night with Couture

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

There are lots of things for a hockey player to do during the offseason: take a much-needed vacation, train, visit home, and so on. But one of the more admirable things hockey players tend to do in the summer months is to hold or take part in charity events to raise money and awareness for causes near and dear to their hearts.

Last night, Sharks forward Logan Couture held his first ever All-In For Brain Research celebrity charity casino event in London, Ontario.

With the goal of the event to raise awareness and funds for concussion research, this event attracted over 500 guests, including some celebrities that included Sharks teammates Chris Tierney and Dylan DeMelo among others.

It's not a casino night without a few tables.

Not content on only hosting and dealing at one of the tables, Couture also took over the Sharks Instagram Story for the night, documenting the fun.

In the end, the event was a success, raising over $100,000 for concussion research and awareness.
