SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -The San Jose Sharks signed first-round draft pick Logan Couture on Thursday.
Couture was the ninth overall selection in last month's draft, and the Sharks traded three picks to St. Louis so they could move up to take the high-scoring center from the OHL's Ottawa 67's.
He had 26 goals and 52 assists in 54 games in Ottawa last season. The Sharks plan to keep Couture with his junior club for at least one more year.
``We worked hard to acquire Logan in the draft, and we truly look forward to his progression as a player,'' Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said.
