The Arizona Coyotes have met with Dan Plante, the agent of San Jose Sharks forward Joe Pavelski, a source told The Athletics Craig Morgan.

Pavelski is an impending unrestricted free agent and reportedly isn't close on a contract extension with the Sharks.

The 34-year-old has visits set up this week with multiple teams, according to The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun.

San Jose has $66.65 million committed to 15 players with a projected $14.8 million in available cap space, according to CapFriendly.

The Coyotes have a projected $6.24 million in cap space, with restricted free-agent forwards Josh Archibald, Lawson Crouse, and Nick Cousins each in need of a new contract.

Pavelski scored 38 goals last season and has hit the 35-goal mark in four of his last six campaigns. Arizona ranked 27th offensively last season and could benefit from adding a proven scorer.

The 13-year veteran has played his entire career in San Jose and ranks fourth in games played and second in goals in franchise history.
