Sharks forward Logan Couture’s painful season got worse when he needed surgery on an artery in his right thigh.
Couture, playing in just his second game since returning from a fractured right fibula, suffered trauma to his right thigh that knocked him out of the game against the Oilers.
Sharks GM Doug Wilson picks the story up from there.
“Upon returning to San Jose, it was discovered that there was a small arterial bleed in the area,” Wilson said. “[Thursday] night, Logan underwent a successful procedure in San Jose to close the artery and is expected to make a full recovery.
