This is the kind of news the Sharks did not need right now
On Thursday, the 34-year-old Couture spoke about the injury following the opening of camp, but provided no details on how he suffered it.
"Just (in) the summer trying to get ready for the season and as of right now it's week-to-week. Just kind of taking a day-by-day rehab in here every day," said the Guelph, Ont., native.
"I wish I was out there with the guys," Couture added. "It's been tough it's tough watching; I hate watching the power play. I want to be a part of every every day the guys are out there. But (it's) fortunate I think that had happened now so I can get back and we're not playing yet."
"So the goal is not to miss any games and all I'm focused on right now."
