Stars' Joe Pavelski: Finds new home in Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (lower body) signed a three-year, $21 million contract with the Stars on Monday.

It's unusual to see an NHL team lose its captain in free agency, but that's precisely how it has unfolded for the Sharks, a franchise still looking for a Stanley Cup win after 28 years of existence. Pavelski compiled 761 points (355 goals, 406 assists) through 963 career contests with San Jose. Despite the Stars averaging a mere 2.5 goals per game last season, we don't expect the three-time NHL All-Star to miss a beat in his new digs. After all, the Stars made a deep run in the 2019 playoffs, and Pavs joins forces with offensive stalwart Tyler Seguin on the top line and No. 1 power-play unit.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Expected to join Stars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (lower body) is expected to sign with Dallas when free agency begins, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

Pavelski has been the Sharks' captain over the last four seasons, but it sounds like he'll be wearing a different sweater for the first time in his NHL career. The 34-year-old has been incredibly consistent over the last decade or so. In his 13-year career, Pavelski has tallied 355 goals and 761 points in 963 games.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Expects to re-sign with San Jose
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (lower body) is confident that he'll be back with the Sharks in 2019-20, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pavelski is just one of the many unrestricted free agents the Sharks will have to make a decision on this offseason -- a list that includes Joe Thornton and Erik Karlsson -- but he always seemed to be the most likely of the bunch to be re-signed. The veteran pivot missed the final game of San Jose's postseason run due to a nagging lower-body injury, but it doesn't sound like something that will impact his offseason training regimen. Pavelski eclipsed the 60-point mark for a third straight season in 2018-19, and there's no reason to believe he won't be able to continue that trend in 2019-20, making him a desirable option in all fantasy formats.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Out for pivotal Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (undisclosed) is listed as a scratch for Tuesday's Game 6 in St. Louis and won't play, per the NHL's Official roster report.

This is damaging news to a team that is already without Tomas Hertl (undisclosed) and Erik Karlsson (groin), as they try to send the series back to San Jose for Game 7. Since returning from a head injury in Game 7 versus Colorado, Pavelski has notched two goals, three assists and 10 shots in six appearances. Joe Thornton will slide in as the second-line center, and Marcus Sorenson will draw into the lineup with Pavelski out.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Game-time call for Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision against the Blues on Tuesday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Pavelski didn't take part in the morning skate, but could still be available for Tuesday's tilt. The club will already be without Tomas Hertl (undisclosed) and Erik Karlsson (groin), so the potential loss of Pavelski would severely hurt the team's chances of forcing a Game 7 back in San Jose. Since returning from a head injury in Game 7 versus Colorado, the Wisconsin native has notched two goals, three assists and 10 shots in six appearances. If Pavelski is unable to play, Joe Thornton would be the most likely candidate to slot into a top-six role.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Does not return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (undisclosed) left during the third period of Sunday's Game 5 loss to the Blues, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pavelski took a hit from Alex Pietrangelo and slowly brought himself back to the locker room. The Sharks' captain missed six games last series due to a head injury so hopefully this injury is unrelated. His availability for Tuesday's Game 6 matchup is unknown.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Makes defensive effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski picked up an assist and five blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win against the Blues in Game 3.

Pavelski laid his body on the line to make Martin Jones' life a little easier Wednesday. Pavelski has four goals, five helpers and 14 blocked shots in 11 postseason appearances, including three points in as many games in the Western Conference finals.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: One of each in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski posted a power-play goal and an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.

It's his second consecutive multi-point outing, and his third in nine appearances during the postseason after sitting out most of the second round with a head injury. Pavelski is up to four goals and four helpers in the playoffs, adding 21 shots and 18 hits.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Returns with two points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (head) scored a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche in Game 7.

Pavelski had missed the first six games of the series with the head injury, but he bounced back with a vital performance in the first period to help the Sharks gain a lead they did not relinquish. Pavelski has three goals and three helpers in eight playoff games, and should play a big role in the Western Conference finals.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Back for Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (head) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 7 against the visiting Avalanche.

Pavelski hasn't suited up in a game for the second-round series against the Avs after suffering a head injury in Game 7 against Vegas. Inserting his 38 goals and 64 points this season into the lineup could give the club a huge boost in the series-deciding game. The 34-year-old figures to play with Tomas Hertl and Evander Kane and his return will relegate Michael Haley to the press box. Pavelski has three points in six career Game 7's.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Game-time call Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (head) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's Game 7 clash with Colorado, Tim Campbell of reports.

Pavelski hasn't played in this second-round series against the Avs after suffering a head injury in Game 7 versus Vegas. Having a world-class player of his caliber, 38 goals and 26 assists this season, back in the lineup would be a huge boost for the Sharks' attack. If Pavelski does suit up, he figures to replace Gustav Nyquist on the top line and would likely relegate Joonas Donskoi or Michael Haley to the press box.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Unavailable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (head) won't be in the lineup versus Colorado on Monday for Game 6, but was able to join his teammates on the ice for the morning skate, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

Pavelski is certainly making progress, which leaves open the door for the world-class center to return should Game 7 be necessary Wednesday. The Wisconsin native will miss his sixth straight outing after suffering a scary head injury in Game 7 versus Vegas. Pavelski notched two goals and two helpers, including four power-play points, in the opening round and will no doubt bolster the Sharks' attack as soon as cleared to play.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Will travel to Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (head) is questionable for Monday's game in Colorado but will travel with the team, David Satriano of reports.

Pavelski has not suited up yet during this second-round matchup against the Avalanche but his Sharks are up 3-2 anyway. Still, the team will gladly accept its captain back in the lineup when he's healthy. Pavelski has been skating with the team, which means he has a decent chance at playing in Game 6. More information on his status will be available Monday.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach Peter DeBoer, Pavelski (head) has begun skating regularly, but he won't be in the lineup for Saturday's Game 5 against the Avalanche, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

Pavelski is clearly making progress in his recovery, but he'll have to wait for Game 6 for his next opportunity to rejoin the lineup. Whether or not the veteran forward travels with the team Sunday will be a telling indication of his potential availability for Monday's game in Colorado.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Resumes skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (head) is scheduled to skate on his own back in San Jose on Wednesday, Frank Seravalli of reports.

Pavelski has already missed the first three games of San Jose's second-round matchup with Colorado and won't be available for Thursday's Game 4, but getting back on the ice in any capacity is a huge step in the right direction in his recovery, and suggests there might be an outside chance that he'll be ready to return Saturday for Game 5. Additional updates on the veteran forward's status should continue to surface in the coming days.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Ruled out next two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (head) didn't travel with the team to Colorado and will miss Games 3 and 4 versus the Avalanche on Tuesday and Thursday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Pavelski remains without a timeline to return to the action, but will for sure miss the next two games. The University of Wisconsin product tallied four points in seven postseason contests, include a goal and an assist on the power play. Gustav Nyquist figures to continue slotting into a first-line role with Logan Couture until Pavelski is cleared to return.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Not expected for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (head) is not expected to suit up in Sunday's Game 2 against the visiting Avalanche, David Satriano of reports.

Pavelski appears to still be feeling the effects of the scary injury he sustained in Game 7 against Vegas, and will continue to sit out. The Sharks' captain reportedly hasn't skated since the injury, so he was considered a longshot for Game 2. The 34-year-old's status is still considered day-to-day, and his next chance to play is in Game 3 on Tuesday.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Day-to-day with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (head) missed the Game 1 win over the Avalanche on Friday, but he remains day-to-day, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

The Sharks captain is still feeling the effects of a Cody Eakin cross-check from Game 7 of the opening playoff series versus the Golden Knights. Pavelski -- who reportedly hasn't skated since sustaining the injury -- is considered doubtful for Game 2 on Sunday, but a better read on his status should surface before long.

Sharks' Joe Pavelski: No go for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, Pavelski (head) won't be in the lineup for Friday's Game 1 against Colorado, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

This news comes as no surprise considering Pavelski just suffered a frightening head injury during Tuesday's Game 7 win over the Golden Knights. The Sharks have yet to release any details regarding a potential timetable for the veteran pivot's recovery, but at this point he should probably be considered questionable at best for Sunday's Game 2 against the Avalanche.

April 25, 2019 04:01 PM
Sharks' Joe Pavelski: In doubt for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pavelski (head) is doubtful for Friday's Game 1 clash with Colorado, Greg Wyshynski of reports.

Anybody who saw Pavelski's injury won't be surprised to see the center is set to miss Friday's matchup. In seven playoff contests, the Wisconsin native notched two goals and two assists, including a pair of power-play points, and won't be easily replaced. If Michael Haley (ankle) and Joonas Donskoi (undisclosed) remain on the shelf as well, the Sharks will need to call up a player from the minors to fill out the lineup or consider playing with seven defensemen.
