Couture scored a goal and added an assist while taking five shots on goal in Friday's 3-1 win over Arizona.

Couture's heater continued in this one, as he's now put up eight points over a five-game point streak -- four of which have been goals. His 64 points are now just a single point shy of his career-best 65 set in 2011-12, and with four games remaining, he could flirt with the 70-point plateau.

Couture found the back of the net for the 26th time this season and also added a helper in Wednesday's 5-1 win over Colorado.

The sniper is now up to 64 points and 245 shots on goal in 77 games this season, leaving him one point shy of his career-best 65 in 2011-12 and eight SOG away from his best set in the same year. He'll almost certainly exceed both of those with five games remaining, so owners have enjoyed a quite successful season from Couture despite the fact the Sharks will miss the playoffs for the first time in 11 years.

Couture potted a power-play goal and fired a game-high seven shots on goal in Sunday's shootout loss to the Penguins.

While his miss in the shootout gave the Penguins the win, Couture has been rolling of late, riding a three-game point streak in which he's produced two goals and four points. The 26-year-old is up to 62 points in 76 games and could potentially hit the 70-point barrier for the first time in his career. With the Sharks needing every point they can get, expect Couture to be a great fantasy play for these final few games.

Couture scored a goal, assisted on another and went plus-3 in Thursday's victory over Detroit.

He'd gone minus-5 without a point in his last two games, so this was a nice bounce-back for both Couture and the Sharks, who'd lost four of five coming in. He's now got his 60-point season, and he's got a strong chance at meeting or exceeding his career-high 65 from 2011-12.

Couture scored his first power-play goal in nearly four months and added an assist Thursday in a win over Toronto.

Couture's in the midst of another solid season -- his fourth 50-plus-point campaign, which is sure to turn into his second 60-pointer -- so it's easy for fantasy owners to overlook the fact that he hadn't scored on the power play since Nov. 20. That's 48 games between man-advantage goals. He'd also tallied just a single point (an assist) over his last five games entering Thursday's action, so a nice recovery all around for Couture, who'll turn 26 toward the end of March.

Couture picked up a secondary assist on the power play in Monday's 4-0 win over the Canadiens.

Couture is up to 54 points on the season, already matching his total from 2013-14. The 25-year-old is also sporting an average ice time of 3:14 on the man advantage, giving him plenty of chances to reward fantasy owners participating in leagues that count power-play bonuses.

Couture potted a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 OT loss to the Capitals. He also skated to a plus-2 and fired four shots on goal.With Wednesday's second-period snipe, Couture has officially reached the 20-goal plateau for the fifth season in a row -- one of which was the 48-game, lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign. Simply put, at the age of 25, he's one of the best young snipers in the game and one of the more underrated fantasy contributors around. Especially so if your league counts SOG, as his 173 are 13th-best in the league.

Couture dished out a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 5-1 win over Vancouver.

He'd gone three straight without finding his way onto the scoresheet, so Couture and the Sharks have to be quite glad to see the tide turn here. With 45 points on the year, he's been a strong producer, but that point-per-game breakout we were hoping for still hasn't materialized despite the highest average ice time of his career.

Couture had an assist and three shots in Thursday's win over the Ducks.

January has been good to Couture. Over the last 10 games he's posted four goals and eight assists. His point per game rate is the best of his career with 18 goals and 25 assists through 49 games.

Couture tallied two goals and chipped in an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

He opened the scoring with a first-period snipe and capped things off by being awarded a goal on an empty-net after being hooked on the play. Although somewhat of a second fiddle to Joe Pavelski's 24 tallies in the goal department, Couture has still been exceptional this year with 18 goals and 42 points, an identical total to Pavelski. The 25-year-old also sits 14th in the NHL with 151 shots on goal, making him a highly productive fantasy forward who's a legitimate scoring threat every time he's on the ice.
