San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture was taken to hospital Saturday after being struck in the mouth by a deflected shot from Brent Burns, CSN's Kevin Kurz confirmed.

Couture appeared to have lost a tooth in the ordeal, but Sharks fans will be hoping his admission to hospital doesn't signify more serious injuries.

It comes as more terrible news from the suddenly reeling Sharks, losers of six straight games. Couture ranks third on the team with 25 goals and 52 points.
