From Plover, Wisconsin, Joe Pavelski has been an underrated secondary scorer on the Sharks for the last couple of years. Overshadowed by big-name teammates like Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Dany Heatley, and Dan Boyle, Pavelski finally made a name for himself during Team USA's Silver Medal run at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. His key assist set up the game-tying goal with 24 seconds remaining in the Gold Medal game against Canada. I generally don't care for rooting for Wisconsin Badgers, but it's hard to not love Joe.
