Logan Couture netted a goal for the Sharks in their 3-1 win over the Islanders on Saturday night.

This was hand-eye coordination at its finest. Justin Braun intentionally wristed the puck wide of the net and Couture deflected it in, for what’s considered the game-winner. The 25-year-old has six goals and 12 points on the season. Playing on the fourth line, Tomas Hertl also scored, in 9:30 of ice time. James Sheppard potted the final marker.

Logan Couture netted his fifth goal of the season in the Sharks' 3-2 shootout win over the Avalanche on Tuesday.

Couture scored a goal and tallied six shots on goal in a game where the Sharks put a whopping 51 shots on the Colorado net. Tommy Wingels and Justin Braun picked up helpers on the Couture goal. Brent Burns had the other tally for the Sharks who got shootout goals from Patrick Marleau and Joe Pavelski. Logan Couture now has 11 points in 11 games after a slow start and is a strong candidate to get nearly a point-per game this season if he stays healthy.

Logan Couture had two assists in Sunday's 4-1 win over Anaheim.

It was Couture's third multi-point game over the span of four contests. He now has four goals and 10 points in 10 contests in 2014-15.

Logan Couture had a goal and an assist on Thursday.

Couture has four goals and eight points in eight games in 2014-15. We expect him to cool down at some point, but not substantially. He's got a legitimate shot of reaching the 70-point milestone.
Oct 24 - 11:31 AM

Logan Couture has been struggling in the faceoff dot this year.

He has won just 27 of the 67 draws (40.3 percent) he's taken in the Sharks' first seven games. Couture typically operates at above 50 percent, so there's a good chance that he'll turn it around. In the meantime, Patrick Marleau has been handling more draws, but he's been just slightly better with a 48.9 winning percentage.

Logan Couture recorded a pair of goals Tuesday, however the Sharks came out on the losing end of a 5-3 score against the Bruins.

Couture has now tallied three times on the season to go along with three assists in his seven outings. Joe Thornton also got his name on the scoresheet in this game as he potted his second of the year late in the second period.

Logan Couture scored and assisted twice in the Sharks’ 4-2 win over the Devils on Saturday night.

The goal was Couture’s first of the season, as the talented 25-year-old has started sluggishly this season, with just one assist and eight shots on goal entering the game. He had four shots on goal against the Devils, so perhaps he’s starting to get out of his early funk. Joe Pavelski also had a three-point night with a goal and two helpers. Patrick Marleau notched a goal and an assist and Joe Thornton also scored, via the empty net
Oct 18 - 10:12 PM

Logan Couture was back at practice Friday after getting Thursday off for a maintenance day.

Couture is on the second line with Patrick Marleau and Matt Nieto. He should have another good season as 30 goals and 70 points is certainly within his reach.
Oct 11 - 9:22 AM

Logan Couture admitted to being "disappointed" that he wasn't nominated to the Sharks' new leadership group.

"I think it's human nature to be disappointed," Couture said. "I'm going to come in and do the exact same thing I would if I had a letter or didn't." Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Joe Pavelski and Marc-Edouard Vlasic will make up the group. Coach Todd McLellan had encouraging words for the young phenom, "It's not like we're closing the door on the individual and saying,'Don't ever come back, you're not qualified.' That's not the case." Sometimes seniority rules.

After the devasting playoff loss to Los Angeles back in May, Logan Couture was quoted saying that he didn't think he'd "ever get over blowing a 3-0 series lead." Fast forward five months, Couture has seemingly "turned the page", at least according to his coach.

"It piled on, but I don't think he is carrying that baggage with him at all at this point," Todd McLellan said. The "pile" would be a season that began to unravel in December after a suffering a wrist injury that needed off-season surgery. Then he was left off Team Canada, and then suffered two hand injuries (plus more surgery), and of course, the big loss. Perhaps sometimes it's easier to bounce back after crashing in a fantastic fashion, but more likely a summer to reflect, heal, and evolve was all that was needed for the 25-year-old star.

Logan Couture felt Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings might serve as a wakeup call.

As Couture noted, the Kings seem ready for the regular season. "We're going to have to open up our season against them in eight days, so we better get going," Couture added. It was still just an exhibition game though, so it's hard to get too work up over the outcome. The Sharks have a lot riding on this season after the way their 2014 playoff run ended, but their preseason record obviously isn't going to make or break them.
Oct 1 - 9:08 AM

Logan Couture returned from an undisclosed injury on Saturday and potted a goal.

Couture has been playing on a line with Patrick Marleau and Matt Nieto in training camp and it looks as if they could be a trio once the regular season begins. Couture is looking for a big season after he scored 23 goals and 53 points in an injury-plagued 65 games last season.
Sep 28 - 11:00 AM

Logan Couture (undisclosed) skated on Thursday after being held out on Wednesday.

Couture took an awkward fall during the Sharks' preseason game against the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. The injury doesn't seem too serious and Couture should be able to return soon. If he can stay healthy, the 25-year-old is a good bet to surpass the 23 goal and 53 point totals he reached last season.
Sep 25 - 2:48 PM

Logan Couture plans to skate on Thursday after leaving Tuesday's game for precautionary reasons.

"Just fell awkwardly and was told to take [the equipment] off," Couture said. "If it was a regular season game I probably would have been back out there, but this time of year just make sure everything’s fine." He also missed Wednesday practice. He had 23 goals and 53 points in 65 games last season.
