It appears the San Jose Sharks will be without their captain for the foreseeable future.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun, Logan Couture has a fractured ankle and is expected to miss at least six weeks with the injury. 

Couture suffered the injury Tuesday night against the St. Louis Blues after falling awkwardly into the boards following a collision with Blues defenceman Vince Dunn

The 30-year-old has 14 goals and 22 assists over 45 games with the Sharks this season, his 11th year with the franchise.
