NHL: SJ Sharks Sign C Joe Pavelski to 5-Year, $30M Extension

Jul 30 2013, 9:05pm CDT | by

The San Jose Sharks signed versatile center Joe Pavelski to a five-year, $30-million extension on Tuesday.

The San Jose Sharks have locked up center Joe Pavelski for another five years.

According to Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News, Pavelski's new deal prevents him from becoming a sought-after unrestricted free agent. The 29-year-old center's deal is worth approximately $30 million, per Pashelka. 

NHL.com's Dan Rosen writes the extension won't kick off until July 1, 2014. It will also reportedly carry a $6 million annual salary-cap charge. 

Pavelski said in a conference call he has enjoyed his seven years in San Jose and that he and his family have grown accustomed to the city. 

"Getting this done was a big deal for us. It's a place that I've grown up in now and the family feels really comfortable here and I understand the organization.

"I've enjoyed my seven years there, so to be there for another six years now is really important and we're looking forward to it."

The new deal allows Pavelski to join the ranks of teammates Logan Couture and Marty Havlat as the highest-paid Sharks for the 2014-15 NHL season at $6 million each. Couture agreed to a deal similar to Pavelski's in June. 

San Jose general manager Doug Wilson reiterated Pavelski is one of the team's core players.  

"He is one of our core players, the way he plays. To me it was just an important to get done on the heels of Logan's contract also. He fits for now and the future the way he plays the game."

Pavelski ranks third among all American-born players with 158 points in the last three seasons, per the Associated Press via USA Today Sports. The new extension is another recent development in his career which also includes an invitation the United States' national team orientation camp in August in preparation for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
