Couture registered two assists and two shots on goal in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Flames.
Couture's playmaking came on Timo Meier's opening goal just 3:04 into the first period and a shorthanded Tomas Hertl goal in the second. The 30-year-old center is off to a strong start with a goal and five assists through six games this season.
Couture scored the Sharks' only goal in a 3-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday.
Couture's second-period tally knotted the game at 1-1, but Ryan Getzlaf put the Ducks ahead again just 1:07 later. The 30-year-old center now has a goal and an assist through three games this season while anchoring the top line.
Couture produced an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
With the exit of Joe Pavelski in the offeseason, Couture will be looked to as the undisputed first-line center for the Sharks. He's off to a good start this year with an assist. The 30-year-old recorded a career-high 70 points in 81 games in 2018-19 and added 20 more points in as many postseason contests.
