According to TSN today, San Jose Sharks' forward Logan Couture was very disappointed about not being included to the roster of the Canadian men's hockey team for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

Couture, a native of Guelph, Ontario who can play center and left wing, sent out the following tweet, "Tough couple days. Thanks for all the kind words. Proud to have even been in consideration. Can't wait to get back on the ice!"

Couture, who is expected to have surgery on his hand, had 14 goals and 21 assists for 35 points in 43 games this season. Couture got off to a fantastic start with 16 October points, but only managed five points in the month of December including a stretch when he went pointless in seven straight games.

According to Sharks general manager Doug Wilson, Couture had been playing with the injury for a while, but Couture does not believe that was the reason he did not make the cut.

Couture however was not the only Shark who has disappointed on Tuesday, as assist machine Joe Thornton and veteran defenseman Dan Boyle were also not selected this time. Meanwhile, the Sharks who were selected to the team were forward Patrick Marleau and defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic.
