Joe Pavelski to meet with several teams, possibly Stars, Lightning

Joe Pavelski to meet with several teams, possibly Stars, Lightning The San Jose Sharks have already done some heavy lifting this offseason, re-signing Erik Karlsson to a huge contract and dealing Justin Braun to the Philadelphia Flyers. Several more deals took place on the second day of the draft to get San Jose the picks and prospects they were after, but there is plenty more work to be done in the coming days. Timo Meier’s next contract may be the most important, but Joe Pavelski will be the focus for many fans that don’t want to see their captain walk out the door after an incredible playoff performance.

Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic (subscription required) reports that Pavelski and agent Dan Plante have several visits set up with potential teams this week While none of those teams are confirmed, LeBrun suggests that the Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning may bring Pavelski in for a meeting , while

Pavelski would like to stay in San Jose but the Sharks are squeezed for salary-cap space. The Athletic's Craig Morgan reported that the Arizona Coyotes have met with Pavelski 's agent, and TSN's Pierre LeBrun also believes he could also meet with the Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning .

Joe Pavelski apparently has no shortage of suitors now that the free-agency interview period is underway.

The San Jose Sharks captain had a meeting with the Dallas Stars at their practice facility Wednesday, reports The Athletic's Sean Shapiro. He also got a tour of the Dallas-Fort Worth area to get an idea of whether it would be a fit for his family.

Pavelski then met with the Lightning in Tampa Bay on Wednesday night, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun.

The veteran forward is a pending unrestricted free agent who'll turn 35 on July 11.

The Minnesota Wild and Arizona Coyotes have also reportedly been in touch with the veteran forward's camp.

Pavelski poured in 38 goals and collected 64 points in 2018-19, his 13th season with the Sharks. He's spent his entire career with San Jose, which drafted him 205th overall in 2003.
