Logan Couture wants to come back this season. But first, he’ll have to get back on the ice.

The Sharks captain missed the first 45 games of the 2023-24 NHL season with Osteitis pubis, essentially a significant groin and abdomen and hip issue. He returned on Jan. 20 and tallied one assist in six games before the NHL All-Star break.

How bad?

“I thought I was past it. But like I said, as I started to play a little bit more, got more sore and more sore and more sore. Even on days where I didn’t skate and off-days it was getting worse. That’s never a good sign,” he shared.
