Logan Couture leaves Swiss team


Recommended Posts

San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture has left his team in Switzerland due to personal reasons, his agent, John Thornton, confirmed to CSNCalifornia.com on Saturday.

Couture will return to his hometown of London, Ontario, early next week, and has no plans to rejoin Geneve-Servette at this time. That could change, depending on the NHL’s labor situation.

In 22 games abroad, Couture had seven goals and 16 assists for 23 points. According to Thornton, Couture is in “really good shape,” and the decision to return home has nothing to do with hockey.

Couture is the third Sharks player to recently leave his team in Europe. TJ Galiardi returned to Calgary following a minor knee injury in Germany, while Antti Niemi is also back in the area after leaving his team in Finland.

A Swiss reporter originally broke the news via Twitter early Saturday morning.
