UPDATE at 8:36 a.m: Comcast SportsNet's Brodie Brazil has confirmed Friday morning the financial details of Logan Couture's contract extension -- 2.75 million for the first year, and 3 million for year two.

The Sharks will hold a conference call tomorrow morning to announce a two-year extension with center Logan Couture that will bond him to San Jose through the 2013-14 season.

Dollar figures have not been finalized yet, as the two sides are still hammering out final details, but Couture, who is under contract for the coming year at 1,241,667, agreed to a two-year stretch that will cover him through the possible lockout year in 2012-13 and the year beyond that.

More details as they become available.
