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."
