SAN JOSE — The Sharks gave Joe Pavelski a warm welcome back to SAP Center on Saturday.

The Sharks honored their former captain with a three minute tribute video before the start of their game with the Dallas Stars. Pavelski stayed near the Stars bench as he watched the presentation, a montage of his more memorable moments in a Sharks uniform.

Pavelski played 963 games for the Sharks over 13 seasons and ended his career in teal with 761 points. Pavelski signed a three-year contract with the Stars on July 1, 2019.

The Stars made themselves feel at home, too, in the game’s opening minutes. With Evander Kane serving a high-sticking penalty, Jamie Benn redirected a Tyler Seguin pass past goalie Aaron Dell to give Dallas a 1-0 lead just 1:32 into the first period.

A short while later, the Sharks recognized Patrick Marleau for playing in his 1,700th NHL game. Only four players have played in more games in the history of the league — Gordie Howe (1,767), Mark Messier (1,756), Jaromir Jagr (1,733) and Ron Francis (1,731).

Patrick Marleau is the fifth player in NHL *history* to reach the 1,700 games mark.
