The San Jose Sharks weren't just watching Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, they were busy working. They reached a new contract extension with rising star Logan Couture. He was set to become a restricted free agent after next season.

The news, reported by CSN Bay Area's Brodie Brazil, came just after Game 3 came to a close in Boston. It was confirmed shortly after by Elliotte Friedman. No term or money were initially given on the contract, but Couture sent this tweet out just a few minutes before Brazil's tweet.

You don't have to be an expert detective to piece all of that together. A new contract is enough to make anybody smile.

And yes, it will be a big day. As in a big pay day. On Tuesday, Bob McKenzie from TSN had the term/financial details.

It's relatively expensive but it seems like a fair deal. Couture is young and still just hitting his prime and is already an All-Star caliber player. It was going to cost the Sharks to re-sign Couture but it's a worthwhile investment.

Couture has been an excellent player for the Sharks since he joined the team four years ago and is the player who will be the future face of the franchise. He had 21 goals and 17 assists this season for the Sharks. Last season while playing 80 games he had 31 goals and 34 assists.
