Congratulations, Captain Joe Pavelski!

Today, Joe Pavelski was named the ninth full-time captain in the history of the San Jose Sharks. (He’s also the first Sharks captain born in the United States.) Many fans have considered him to be the obvious choice for a while, and I’m very happy to see it happen. A few stick taps are also in order for Joe Thornton and Logan Couture, who were named alternate captains. (I admit I was a little surprised that Marc-Edouard Vlasic didn’t get named as an alternate. By the way, I thought that Thornton and Patrick Marleau were both excellent team captains during their tenures.)

It’s a shame that no one will bother to change Joe Pavelski’s department rank in this clever (if rather dark) Sharks commercial from 2009:
