SAN JOSE – San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson today released the following statement regarding Sharks forward Logan Couture.
“In Wednesday night’s game in Edmonton, Logan suffered trauma to his right thigh, creating a Charley-horse effect which prohibited him from returning to the game.
Upon returning to San Jose, it was discovered that there was a small arterial bleed in the area. Last night, Logan underwent a successful procedure in San Jose to close the artery and is expected to make a full recovery.
At this time, there is no projected time frame for his return to the ice but we do not expect this to be a long-term recovery.
Fortunately, this injury is completely unrelated to his previous ankle injury.”
