San Jose Sharks star centre Logan Couture could miss one month following surgery Wednesday for a hand injury.

The 24-year-old, who has 14 goals and 21 assists in 43 games, could return in 3-4 weeks, according to multiple reports.

"For the past several weeks, Logan has been dealing and playing with an upper body injury," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement.

"Despite his efforts to play through it, the injury has not responded as we had hoped and Logan has made the decision to undergo a surgical procedure to repair the problem."
