San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture is on the road to recovery after undergoing successful surgery on his hand.

Couture injured his hand in Game 6 of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs vs. the Los Angeles Kings.

Sharks general manager Doug Wilson released a statement on Tuesday about the surgery.

"Last week, Logan underwent successful surgery to repair a hand injury suffered in a fight in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against Mike Richards," said Wilson in a statement. "The procedure went as expected and Logan will be ready for the start of training camp."

Despite the injury, Couture played in Game 7 of the series, which the Sharks lost after leading 3-0.

The 25-year-old Couture had 54 points in 65 regular-season games and three points in seven playoff games in 2013-14.
