Pavelski Named Brocade \'Sharks Player of the Year\'
The San Jose Sharks announced that forward Joe Pavelski has been selected as the Brocade \u201CSharks Player of the Year\u201D for 2013-14.

SAN JOSE — The San Jose Sharks (@sanjosesharks) announced today that forward Joe Pavelski has been selected as the Brocade “Sharks Player of the Year” for 2013-14 in a vote by the Bay Area media. The award is given to the player contributing most to the success of the Sharks in the 2013-14 regular season.

It is the first time Pavelski has been named Brocade “Sharks Player of the Year.” The award will be presented prior to tonight’s game against the Colorado Avalanche at SAP Center at San Jose. On behalf of Pavelski, Brocade will present a $5,000 check to the Sharks Foundation.

Pavelski has had a banner year in 2013-14, posting career-highs in points (77) and goals (39) (both first on the Sharks), along with a plus-21 rating in 80 games. In addition, Pavelski currently ranks tied-for-third in the NHL in goals, second in power play goals (15), T-8th in points (77), T-10th in blocked shots amongst forwards (65), and ninth in faceoff percentage (56.3%).

Pavelski was named the Brocade Sharks Player of the Month twice this season (December 2013, January 2014). Additionally he was named the NHL’s “Third Star of the Month” in January when he finished the month with 16 points (team-leading 12 goals, four assists) and a +7 rating in 15 games.

Pavelski has registered three hat tricks this season, tied for the most in the NHL. The first occurred on Jan. 18 at Tampa Bay and was his first career NHL hat trick. In that game, he also set a new Sharks franchise record for fastest three goals (6:12) in a game. On February 27, 2014 at Philadelphia, he struck again, scoring the second-fastest hat trick in franchise history in 9:47 of game time. Finally, Pavelski netted his “hat trick” of hat tricks on March 25 at Edmonton.

This season marks the second time Pavelski has reached the 30-goal, 30-assist mark (2011-12). He is only the fourth Sharks player in franchise history to have multiple “30/30” seasons. Furthermore, on March 11 vs. Toronto, Pavelski scored a pair of goals and added an assist to surpass the 400-point mark, becoming just the fourth Sharks player in franchise history to reach 400 points with the team.

Pavelski represented Team USA at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia earlier this year and was a member of the silver medal squad with Team USA in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

The five-foot-eleven, 190-pound native of Plover, Wisconsin was originally selected by San Jose in the seventh round (205th overall) of the 2003 NHL Draft.

“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 Brocade ‘Sharks Player of the Year’” John Noh, a Brocade executive commented.
