Couture (jaw) is believed to have gone through concussion protocol after absorbing a high hit from Canucks center Alex Burmistrov in the third period of Friday's overtime loss, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

At this point, all that anyone can do at this point is speculate about Couture considering that Sharks coach Peter DeBoer was mum about the power-play pivot's status after the game. A more definitive prognosis should be disclosed to the public ahead of Monday's game against the Oilers.

Couture took a shoulder hit to the mouth from Canucks center Alex Burmistrov in Friday night's game and his return is doubtful, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kurz believes that the next update on Couture won't arrive until the after the game, which implies that the punchy pivot is done for the night. Especially considering that he sustained major damage to his mouth after taking a puck to the grill last April, all eyes will be on Couture as he gets evaluated closer.

Couture scored for the second consecutive game and added two helpers in Saturday's win over the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Couture collected two of his assists with the man advantage, as he continues to be lethal force with the extra man. The 28-year-old is putting together a terrific season and is now up to 25 points (15 goals) in 28 contests. His ability to find twine on a consistent basis makes him worth rolling out whenever the Sharks are in action.

Couture bagged a pair of assists in Tuesday's win over the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

That's back-to-back multi-point efforts from Couture, who is up to 13 goals and 21 points in 23 games. The sniper has been excellent on the power play and is showcasing his all-around game with a tidy plus-8 rating. His consistency and shooting accuracy makes him a must-start whenever the Sharks are in action.

Couture went off for two goals -- he dialed up a shorthanded tally as well as one at even strength -- culminating in a 4-0 home win over the Jets on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

It's going to be difficult for Couture to maintain his gaudy 21.7 shooting percentage, but he's a natural when it comes to brushing twine for the Sharks. The Ontario native is up to 13 goals and 19 points through 22 games to lead the team this season, plus he's outperforming captain Joe Pavelski (four goals, seven assists) by a mile.

Couture scored an even-strength goal and a shorthanded marker in Saturday's win over the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

The two tallies brought Couture up to 10 goals through 15 contests. The second-line center had gone four games without finding twine, but he's producing at close to a point-per-game pace thus far and is showing he's dangerous in all situations. The 28-year-old sniper is a lethal scorer whose ability to find the net consistently makes him worth owning in almost all formats.

Couture scored his eighth goal of the season in a 3-2 win over Buffalo. It was the game winner.

Couture recorded a goal and an assist while logging 18:07 of ice time during Monday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

After starting the season with just a single goal through four contests, Couture has posted three multi-point showings over his past four outings for seven goals, 10 points and 22 shots on the campaign. The 28-year-old pivot owns an unsustainably high 31.8 shooting percentage, so there is likely to be some statistical correction in the goals column moving forward. Still, it checks out as an encouraging start for the steady fantasy contributor.

Couture picked up a hat trick Saturday in a 5-3 loss to the Islanders.

Couture scored two goals and two assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Montreal.

EDGE Analysis

Two of those points, a goal and an assist, came via the power play. Couture got the scoring started early in the first period and would later pick up helpers on Tomas Hertl's game-winning goal and Joe Thornton's empty-net score. The 28-year-old had been held scoreless in his previous three games, so this performance was certainly a long time coming. He'll attempt to stay hot against the Devils on Friday.
