Joe Pavelski still has the lead at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, even after moving day.

The San Jose Sharks forward put up another impressive performance and leads with a total of 47 points. He is trying to unseat three-time defending champion Mark Mulder, a former MLB pitcher. The team's official twitter account shared some of the captain's highlights.

Scoring at the tournament is six points for an eagle, three for a birdie, one for par, zero for bogey and minus-2 for double bogey.

"I hung in there in a good position," Pavelski told The Associated Press. "I'm excited to play with the guys tomorrow. There's some good golfers. And they've proven themselves. And Mulder's the guy to beat right now."

Pavelski completed an impressive round Friday, one that the Sharks couldn't stop talking about.

On Saturday, teammate Evander Kane gave him a shoutout.

To prove he just couldn't miss, Pavelski sank a long basketball jump shot between holes.
