The Sharks and Joe Pavelski are currently discussing a contract extension for the 29-year-old forward, but nothing is imminent, Pavelski’s agent Dan Plante indicated to CSNCalifornia.com.

“Doug [Wilson] and I have spoken but haven't really gotten deep in discussions. More on philosophy but we have spoken a lot,” Plante said via text message.

Appearing on Yahoo! Sports Talk Live on July 10, Sharks general manger Doug Wilson said negotiations with Pavelski began “basically the same time as Logan [Couture’s]." Couture agreed to a five-year, $30 million contract extension with the Sharks on June 17.

Pavelski enters the final year of a four-year, $16 million contract in 2013-14.

The two sides were expected to meet in Chicago in the near future according to Wilson, but now those meetings aren’t expected to take place due to the "timing of things." Still, “we will get something figured out I am sure,” Plante said.
