The San Jose Sharks have agreed to terms on a new five-year, $30 million contract extension with Logan Couture.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reports that the deal has an average annual value of $6 million per year.

The contract cannot be officially signed until July 5. Couture will make $2.875 million next year in the final season of his current deal.

A first-round pick by San Jose in 2007, the 24-year-old Couture has been the Sharks' top goal-scorer the past two years.

In 48 games last season, the Guelph, Ont., native netted 21 goals and added 16 assists. In 232 career NHL games, he has scored 89 goals and 78 assists with a plus-31 rating.
