DALLAS, TX. (WSAW) - Plover native Joe Pavelski recorded another milestone on Saturday, tallying his 500th career assist.

In the game against the Seattle Kraken, Pavelski was able to thread the needle on a pass through the crease to Jason Robertson, who hit the back of the net.

Pavelski continues to excel in his age 37 season, recording 27 goals and 51 assists for a total of 421 career goals to go along with the 500 assists. He signed a one-year extension worth $5.5 million to remain with the Dallas Stars through next season.
