The San Jose Sharks named forward Joe Pavelski the club's new captain Monday.

Forwards Joe Thornton and Logan Couture will serve as the team's alternate captains, the team announced.

The team went without a captain during the 2014-15 season after Thornton, who served as captain from 2010-2014, was stripped of the role.

Speculation on who would don the "C" for the Sharks ramped up after head coach Peter DeBoer announced that he had made his decision, but was waiting to reveal it.

Pavelski has spent his entire 10-year career with the Sharks posting 228 goals and 485 points in 643 games. He led the team in goals and points last season with 37 and 70 respectively.
