# CCCXXXVII…Number 31 for “Little Joe” (Sharks’ Joe Pavelski)…

As most of you know by now, I am a die-hard (since their inception) San Jose Sharks’ fan.  That having been said, it is my pleasure to introduce you all to one of our alternate captains; Center Joe Pavelski, who was born on July 11, 1984.  One of the main reasons I am speaking about him is because, for a man that has been on the team for almost ten seasons (2006), he has been an integral member of ONLY our team; in this day and age of “money talks” (free agency), he has stuck with us and continues to be a productive member of our team.

Also odd about the man is the fact that, although he’s been playing with the team since 2006, he is also a rarity…he was taken 205th overall in the 2003 draft.  That is only important if you understand the fact that, if you’re taken that low in the draft, your success rate usually tumbles.  With nine seasons under his belt, he has amassed 485 points (228 goals, 257 assists) and has been on two U.S. Olympics squads (2010, 2014).

Happy Birthday, Little Joe…and many happy more…
