The San Jose Sharks announced Saturday that forward Joe Pavelski has been selected as the Brocade \u201CSharks Player of the Month\u201D for January.

SAN JOSE — The San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) announced today that forward Joe Pavelski has been selected as the Brocade (@BRCDcomm) “Sharks Player of the Month” for January.

Pavelski finished the month with 16 points (team-leading 12 goals, four assists) and was a +7 in 15 games during the month. He has scored the game-winning goal in three of the last four Sharks victories and has recorded 10 points (7-3=10) in his last eight contests. Pavelski scored his first career NHL hat trick in a 5-4 win at Tampa Bay on Jan. 18.

He ranks tied for third in the League in goals (28), just three shy of his career high. In addition, Pavelski ranks second on San Jose and tied for 13th in the NHL in points (53), second on the Sharks in faceoff percentage (55.2%) and tied for seventh in the League in blocked shots amongst forwards.

This is the fourth time Pavelski has received the honor.

Established in the 1996-97 season, the Brocade “Sharks Player of the Month” program honors the Sharks player(s) who have contributed most to the team’s success each month. Brocade will donate $2,500 on behalf of the player(s) to the Sharks Foundation. In addition, one player will be selected as the Brocade “Sharks Player of the Year” at the conclusion of the season and Brocade will donate $5,000 on his behalf to The Sharks Foundation. The Sharks Player of the Month and Year award program has donated more than $300,000 to the Sharks Foundation since the program's inception.

“Both Brocade and the Sharks Foundation share a commitment to giving back to the community that so strongly supports us. We applaud the Sharks Foundation’s dedication to enhancing the lives of youth and families in our community with an emphasis in the areas of Education, Health and Safety, and Character Development. We are honored to make a charitable contribution to the Sharks Foundation to commemorate the hard work and dedication of the Sharks Player of the Month,” John Noh, a Brocade executive commented.
