Sharks' Pavelski injured in first period

SAN JOSE – Sharks first-line forward Joe Pavelski was hit in the left side of his head by a deflected puck just 1:47 into Tuesday night’s game against Edmonton at HP Pavilion and went to the dressing room.

After being struck, Pavelski landed hard on the ice just right of the Edmonton crease, then slammed into the boards with his left shoulder. A trainer examined Pavelski and then assisted him off the ice.

Pavelski missed the rest of the first period.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
