Pavelski out at least a couple weeks with a lower body injury after blocking puck with left leg | Working the Corners

Sharks Coach Todd McLellan said this morning that Joe Pavelski has undergone a minor procedure for a lower body injury and is expected to be out a couple weeks.

The injury occurred at 2:30 of the first period when Pavelski blocked a power play shot from the blue line by Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf, but the Sharks forward did not leave the game, skating 28 shifts for a total of 19:21 in ice time.

END UPDATE

It’s been more than two hours since I asked the Sharks about reports that Joe Pavelski was injured in Saturday night’s game and I’m still waiting for an answer.

And at this pointing I’m waiting in the media room at Sharks Ice where the team is practicing — and Pavelski is NOT on the ice.

Here’s how the initial lines shaped up:

Heatley-Thornton-Setoguchi

Clowe-Marleau-Ferriero

McLaren-Malhotra-Ortmeyer

Shelley-Nichol-Staubitz

And a non-team source reports that Torrey Mitchell, who was placed on long-term injured reserve and cannot play until Oct. 24 at the earliest, was skating this morning before his teammates took the ice.
