Logan Couture's hand was fine as training camp began.

If Joe Thornton doesn't earn the Sharks' captaincy back, Logan Couture is a prime candidate to take charge of San Jose.

The 25 year old star is a leader both on and off the ice. Having produced 212 points in 272 games over the past five seasons, Couture is locked up for five more years and has proven to be an energetic, two-way force. Couture served as captain of the Ottawa 67's during his tenure in the OHL, and has a bit more shelf life than fellow star Joe Pavelski and former captains Thornton and Patrick Marleau, who are all in their 30's.

Logan Couture feels Joe Thornton doesn't deserve to have the captaincy taken from him.

There's been some speculation that might happen after Thornton made it clear that he wouldn't waive his no-trade clause. The Sharks might have otherwise shipped him off to jump start their rebuilding effort. Instead, Couture is hoping the Sharks "come back a lot stronger, a lot hungrier" after blowing a 3-0 series lead against the Los Angeles Kings in the first round of the 2014 playoffs. "It's probably the toughest loss I've been through… It was pretty devastating. It's really stuck with me the whole summer," Couture said.

Logan Couture has drawn five penalties and three points through just four games in these playoffs, which has certainly helped the Sharks build a commanding lead over the Kings so far.
