As the San Jose Sharks hosted the Dallas Stars on Saturday night that meant one thing…the return of Joe Pavelski at the Tank.
I wonder if this was the welcome he expected.
In an interview with ESPN he said “I think it’ll be weird. Probably seeing the jersey will be the hardest part. It’ll be awkward in a lot of ways.”
After 13 seasons with the Sharks and four as the captain, Pavelski signed a three-year, $21 million contract with the Dallas Stars last offseason.
Pavelski may be #16 on the Stars, but he will forever be #8 and our Cap. San Jose still loves you, Joe!
