Minnesota Wild general manager Paul Fenton has been in contact with Joe Pavelski's agent, Dan Plante, The Athletic's Michael Russo reported Monday.

Plante has talked to the San Jose Sharks captain about the Wild "a lot," adds Russo, and the team recently re-signed another Plante client, Brad Hunt.

Pavelski is a pending unrestricted free agent coming off the final season of the five-year, $30-million deal he signed with San Jose in the summer of 2013.

The veteran forward, who'll turn 35 on July 11, poured in 38 goals and collected 64 points in 75 regular-season games this past campaign before adding four markers and 9 points in 13 playoff contests.

He's spent his entire 13-year career with the Sharks, who gave him the "C" in 2015-16.
