SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Sharks forward Logan Couture has undergone a procedure to close a bleeding artery in his right thigh after he sustained the injury Wednesday night in Edmonton.

Sharks general manager Doug Wilson announced Friday that Couture had returned to San Jose and a small arterial bleed was discovered in the injured area. Couture is expected to make a full recovery, but there’s no timetable for his return.

The Sharks don’t expect their star to be sidelined for long, but it’s another blow for Couture. He’d just returned for two games after missing nearly two months with a fractured right fibula at the ankle. He’s played just five games this season.

Wilson says Courture “suffered trauma to his right thigh, creating a Charley-horse effect which prohibited him from returning to the game.”
