Couture is closing in on an eight-year, $64 million contract extension with the Sharks, Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds like the two sides are busy putting finishing touches on the mega-deal. Couture's current contract with the Sharks ($6 million AAV) wouldn't expire until July 1 of 2019, but it makes perfect sense for GM Doug Wilson to reach a deal with the prized pivot a year ahead of time. Selected ninth overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Couture's compiled 437 points (213 goals, 224 assists) over 582 career contests -- all with San Jose -- and he's been locked in on the team's No. 1 power-play unit. We'll keep you posted once Couture officially puts pen to paper on the new deal -- perhaps as soon as Sunday when the free-agency signing period commences.

Couture opened the scoring with a goal and set up Evander Kane and Tomas Hertyles' marker in an 8-1 blowout of Anaheim on Monday in Game 3.

EDGE Analysis

With five points in the playoff series, Couture is playing like what he is: one of the best players on the continent. Put simply, he's getting the job done for both the Sharks and his fantasy owners, and he should be a sure thing in your lineup whenever San Jose takes the ice.

Couture delivered a power-play goal and a 5-on-5 assist in Thursday's 4-2 home win over the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

The popular scoring pivot was the primary distributor on defenseman Justin Braun's game-opening score and Couture also bagged the go-ahead goal to keep the Avalanche on the outside looking into the playoffs. Nabbed by the Sharks with the ninth overall pick in 2007, Couture's at 61 points (34 goals, 27 assists) and 21 power-play points through 77 games.

Couture (undisclosed) will play Monday night against host Chicago, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Couture left Saturday's contest against the Flames in the third period, but evidently, his injury wasn't serious. This is great news for the Sharks and fantasy owners alike, as 2007's ninth overall pick is in the midst of a four-game point streak comprised of three goals and two assists. Naturally, Couture will reprise his role on the No. 1 power-play unit as well.

Couture missed half the third period against the Flames on Saturday with an undisclosed injury, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Peter DeBoer didn't provide an update on Couture following the game, so it's unclear if it was just a minor knock or if DeBoer simply didn't have any additional information. It would be a bad time for the center to get hurt, as the Sharks have just seven games remaining before the start of the playoffs. San Jose kicks off a back-to-back Monday against the Blackhawks.

Couture scored his 29th goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

Couture has been a force on the top line and is having his best offensive season since 2014-15. The sniper has put up 54 points in 68 contests and continues to be a key power-play contributor. Couture appears destined for a 30-goal season and remains one of the more consistent offensive producers in the game.

Couture scored a power-play goal and added two assists in a 4-3 win over the Oilers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

This ends a brief dry spell for Couture, who had been held without a point in his previous four games. However, stretches like that have been rare for the 28-year-old. He now has 28 goals and 24 assists through 66 contests. It seems like Couture is going to crack the 30-goal mark for the first time since the 2011-12 season.

Couture contributed a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Both of Couture's points came in the second period, as all five of the game's goals were scored during that frame. With 24 goals in 60 team games (56 appearances), the 28-year-old forward's just one shy of tying last season's total and is on pace to challenge his 2010-11 career high of 32.
