Logan Couture leaves Switzerland, according to report

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

San Jose Sharks center Logan Couture has left the Swiss National League, where he was leading the first-place Geneve-Servette HC.

San Jose Sharks center Logan Couture has reportedly left Switzerland, with his agent citing "personal reasons" for the departure. Couture was playing for Geneve-Servette HC, who are the current points leader in the Swiss National League.

Couture was leading Geneve-Servette in scoring, having picked up 23 points (7 goals in 22 games.) It is unclear if he is done with the team for good, but the league does note that he is no longer under contract, having signed a deal with the club for only two months.

Many NHL players have headed overseas during the lockout, but as SB Nation's Sharks blog Fear the Fin points out, both T.J. Galiardi and Antti Niemi have preceded Couture in departing Europe for North America. Other Sharks remain overseas, including Joe Thornton. He also plays in the Swiss National League. He's second on HC Davos with 22 points on five goals and 17 assists.
