Couture back for Sharks, who’ve had a tough December


Logan Couture will be back in the Sharks’ lineup tonight versus the Flyers.

It’ll be just his sixth game of the season.

To recap, the 26-year-old played the first three games, then broke his fibula in practice. He returned Dec. 8 after missing 23 games, only to suffer a trauma in his right leg the very next day. He missed another seven games, bringing his total missed to 30.

The Sharks have not had a great December. They’re 3-7-2 in the month, 17-16-2 on the season.

San Jose kicked off its five-game home stand Monday with a 6-3 loss to Colorado.

Couture is expected to center a line with Joel Ward and Patrick Marleau.
