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.
