Dallas Stars forward Joe Pavelski recently celebrated a milestone not achieved by many players throughout history.

Thursday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs had the Stars holding a ceremony for Pavelski reaching one thousand points in his NHL career.


The 39-year-old Pavelski was drafted 205th overall in the seventh round of the 2003 NHL draft by the San Jose Sharks.


His career began in the 2006-07 season for the Sharks, putting up 28 points in 46 games.

Pavelski would spend thirteen seasons in San Jose, playing in 963 games, tallying 761 points.

After numerous playoff runs and a trip to the 2016 Stanley Cup Final, Pavelski would leave the Sharks and sign a 3-year $21 million contract in Dallas.

Since then, he has played in almost 300 games with the Stars including a trip to the 2020 Stanley Cup Final in the bubble playoffs.

The veteran shows no signs of slowing down as he chases his long awaited Stanley Cup.
