SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The San Jose Sharks are close to being a complete team again even without a couple of stars still over at the Olympics.
The Sharks returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since the Olympic break with a couple of key players back in the fold.
Star forward Logan Couture was back on the ice along with previously injured forwards Raffi Torres, Tyler Kennedy and Matt Nieto as San Jose hopes to field a mostly healthy team for the final 23 games of the regular season.
Despite a litany of injuries, the Sharks are still fifth in the league in points with 80 and are seven points behind first-place Anaheim in the Pacific Division with one game in hand.
