The Sharks have learned they will be without Joe Pavelski due to a minor procedure performed on a lower body injury and the center will miss a couple of weeks.

"Pavs obviously wasn’t at practice," said Sharks Head Coach Todd McLellan. "He was hurt the other night and had a minor procedure this morning. He will be out a couple of weeks with a lower body injury."

During Monday’s practice, Pavelski’s spot was filled by Patrick Marleau, who was flanked by Ryane Clowe and Benn Ferriero. Pavelski may not have the name recognition of many Sharks players, but he a vital cog for the men in teal.

"Pavs plays a huge role," said McLellan. "Today we moved Patty back in there. He's accustomed to playing there and we trust him. I think Patty is a tremendous center."

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
