Logan Couture scored in overtime for the second straight game, giving the San Jose Sharks a 2-1 win over the streaking New York Islanders on Saturday night
Defensemen Vince Dunn and Robert Bortuzzo scored second-period goals that helped the St. Louis Blues overcome another big game from San Jose’s Logan Couture with a 4-2 victory that tied the Western Conference final at one game apiece
On Sunday, when John Tavares’ departure left a void on Long Island, the Sharks signed Logan Couture, Coyotes signed Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Kings signed Drew Doughty and Lightning signed Ryan McDonagh to long-term deals. None of them would have been free agents until July 1, 2019, and this was the first possible chance to ink extensions that begin more than a year from now.
A person familiar with the deal says Logan Couture has agreed to a $64 million, eight-year contract extension with the San Jose Sharks. The person tells The Associated Press that the sides reached agreement on the deal that can become official on Sunday when Couture enters the final year of his $30 million, five-year contract.
Logan Couture had problems just eating and breathing heading into the playoffs last year because of an errant puck that shattered his face. He’s healthy now and the Sharks are hoping Couture can again perform like he did two years ago when he led the NHL in playoff scoring and helped lead San Jose to the Stanley Cup Final.
