SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - San Jose Sharks center Joe Pavelski will be sidelined for about two weeks with a lower body injury.
Coach Todd McLellan says Pavelski had a minor procedure performed on the undisclosed injury on Monday. Patrick Marleau will move from wing to center to take Pavelski's place on San Jose's second line.
Pavelski was injured in the first period Saturday, blocking a shot by Anaheim forward Ryan Getzlaf.
The Sharks also assigned defenseman Joe Callahan to Worcester.
