Another two former San Jose Sharks are off to the Western Conference Finals.

Joe Pavelski, who missed the majority of the Dallas Stars’ first-round series after sustaining a concussion in Game One, went on to dominate the second round. In the Stars’ seven-game series against the Seattle Kraken, Pavelski tallied eight goals and an assist.

These eight goals broke the Stars’ franchise record for goals in a single playoff series, previously held by Steve Payne and Tony McKegney.

For Pavelski, this will be his second trip to the Conference Finals since leaving San Jose in 2019 as a free agent.

The other former Shark, current Stars head coach Pete DeBoer, continues to find success in his first season with new teams.

For DeBoer, this is his third trip to the Conference Finals since the Sharks fired him in Dec. 2019.

The Dallas Stars will take on the San Jose Sharks’ biggest rival, the Vegas Golden Knights, in the Western Conference Finals.

The Golden Knights, of course, have ex-Shark goaltender Adin Hill.
