"I know everyone wishes we were playing hockey, but right now we need to take the necessary precautions to stay safe and healthy," Couture wrote. "With this added free time on my hands, I often find myself getting lost in a good book. I'm really into psychological and legal thrillers, as well as murder-mysteries."
The first book Couture will be reading is "The Rule of Law" by John Lescroart. The 18th book of Lescroart's Dismas Hardy series, it follows an attorney who has to defend his assistant, who is being charged as an accessory to murder.
"If this sounds interesting to you, I encourage you to read along. Once I finish the book, I'll be back to give you my official book review," Couture wrote. He'll also share a list of some of his favorite books.

Maple Leafs snap three-game slide with victory over Lightning .
TORONTO — Auston Matthews scored his 47th goal of the season and Frederik Andersen made 32 saves as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Tuesday night. William Nylander also scored for Toronto (36-25-9), which was back home following a miserable California road trip that saw the club secure a solitary point and combine to register just three goals against the Western Conference's three worst teams — the San Jose Sharks, Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks. Mitch Marner and John Tavares put up two assists each for the Leafs, who had star defenceman Morgan Rielly back in the lineup for the first time since breaking his foot on Jan. 12.
