Statement On The Health Of Logan Couture

SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks 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."
