San Jose Sharks forward Joe Pavelski reached the 40-goal mark for the first time in his NHL career this season, and his teammates were ready to help him commemorate the milestone in a fitting way.
Pavelski scored two goals in San Jose’s regular-season finale to increase his total to 41 on the year, surpassing his previous career high by 10 goals. The feat certainly called for a celebration, and after the Sharks’ 3-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes, the party was on — in the locker room, anyway.
Adam Burish, a Sharks teammate and former University of Wisconsin roommate, dropped off some tasty presents for Pavelski at his locker after the game.
Pavelski celebrated scoring 40 goals the Wisconsin way! Bunch of 40oz's! He's not done scoring yet! http://t.co/g2o2BxICVi—

Nothing says you’ve made it like some Mickey’s and Miller High Life.
