Logan Couture still is playing with Joe Thornton.
It has been three seasons since they last shared the ice together as San Jose Sharks, but they’re still in the same Sharks locker room fantasy football league.
“He’s still interested. When you see him around here, he’ll talk fantasy with us,” the current captain said of the franchise icon who now spends most of his time with Sharks management in an unofficial capacity. “He’s the guy that will chirp in the group chat.”
Couture said that the San Jose Sharks’ locker room fantasy football league has been around since “2015 or 2016.” Besides Couture (team name: “Bills Mafia”) and Thornton (“Jumbotrons”), the 12-team league includes Erik Karlsson (“Don Pablo”), Tomas Hertl (“Minions 48”), Luke Kunin/Matt Benning (“Team Luke”), Aaron Dell, Adin Hill, Barclay Goodrow (“Charles Barclays”), Brenden Dillon, Chris Tierney (“Striking Cobras”), Joel Ward, and Giuseppe from team favorite restaurant Aldo’s Café.
