Canada’s first game is on Feb. 13 against Norway, meaning Couture could be ready to represent his country in Sochi should his rehabilitation progress as expected. Injured players can be selected and replaced later if they’re unable to suit up for the tournament.
In 43 games for the Sharks this season, Couture has 14 goals, 20 assists and a plus-13 rating.
