There's another fish in the water.

The San Jose Sharks activated Logan Couture off injured reserve Monday, the club announced.

Couture suffered a broken fibula in practice in mid-October. He had surgery and was expected to miss between four-to-six weeks. He put up one assist in three games before being hurt.

The 26-year-old practiced on a line with Patrick Marleau and Joel Ward on Monday, according to CSN's Kevin Kurz.

Head coach Peter DeBoer wouldn't confirm that Couture would play Tuesday in Calgary against the Flames, but it appears he'll be back in the lineup.

Couture enjoyed a career year in 2014-15. He played in all 82 games, scoring 27 goals, and finishing with personal highs in assists (40) and points (67). He'll be a big addition to a Sharks team currently averaging 2.7 goals a game, which ranks 13th in the NHL.
