Moving Patrick Marleau down to the third line gave the San Jose Sharks a huge advantage in Game 1.

The line of Marleau, Matt Nieto and Melker Karlsson was much the better line in Game 1 against their Los Angeles Kings counterparts led by Vincent Lecavalier. The Kings will need to figure out how to combat that in Game 2. Marleau ended the season with 25 goals and 23 assists in his worst season since 2001-02 when he had 44 points in 79 games.
Apr 16 - 9:20 AM

Patrick Marleau picked up another goal and an assist during Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Jets.

Marleau now has points in four of his last five games, totaling four goals and six points in that span. For the season, the life time Shark has posted 25 goals and 48 points this season.
Apr 8 - 1:52 AM

Patrick Marleau scored his 12th even strength goal of the season during Tuesday's 3-0 win over Minnesota.

Marleau is now up to 24 goals this season. He probably won't crack 50 points, as he's only at 46 with a couple of games to go, but he has points in three of his last four games suggesting he's still in mid-season form.
Apr 6 - 2:22 AM

Patrick Marleau potted his 10th power play goal of the season during Thursday's 4-2 loss to Vancouver.

The tally started San Jose's comeback from 2-0 as well. The all-time greatest Shark is up to 22 goals and 44 points this season with 23 coming on the man advantage.
Apr 1 - 1:19 AM

Patrick Marleau was a minus-two Saturday and is now minus-22 for the season.

That's pretty bad and the Sharks have to be concerned about the play of the 36-year-old as he has only 21 goals and 42 points this season. His poor plus/minus certainly makes him a non-factor fantasy-wise with poolies who play the category.
Mar 27 - 11:24 AM

Patrick Marleau collected his third goal of March during Thursday's 6-3 loss to Edmonton.

Marleau's tally however tied the game at three midway through, and it was his ninth power play goal as well. The veteran's overall stats may be down this season but he's up to 21 goals and 42 points, which ain't half bad at all.
Mar 25 - 1:20 AM

Patrick Marleau scored a shorthanded goal in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

Marleau's goal gave the Sharks a 2-1 lead in the second period. Joel Ward and Marc-Edouard Vlasic assisted on the go-ahead goal. Marleau now has 20 goals and 20 assists in 68 games this season. It's the 13th time in his career that he hits the 20-goal mark.
Mar 13 - 11:12 AM

Patrick Marleau is set to center the third line of the Sharks on Monday night.

He is slated to play with Joonas Donskoi and Nick Spaling, while Logan Couture will skate with Matt Nieto and Joel Ward. Marleau has scored two goals in the last four games, which ended a seven-game goalless skid.
Mar 7 - 5:40 PM

Patrick Marleau scored a rare even strength goal during Thursday's 3-2 win over Vancouver.

In fact it turned out to the game winner. Marleau may be up to just four even strength goals over his last 33 games, including tonight, but he's compiled 19 goals and 39 this season. No matter how they're accrued, they count just the same.
Mar 4 - 1:46 AM

Patrick Marleau has only one even strength goal in his last 30 games.

That's a stretch going back to the 15th of December for the veteran forward who has four on the power play in the same time frame. Marleau has 17 goals and 37 points this season but his minus-14 rating leaves a lot to be desired.
Feb 27 - 10:09 AM

Patrick Marleau picked up a pair of points during Thursday's 6-5 shootout loss to Calgary.

Don't look to Marleau for why the Sharks fell, he had one of their goals and assisted on another. Plus any one of his four other shots could have gone in. He's now up to 17 goals and 35 points on the season.
Feb 12 - 2:01 AM

Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area is speculating on the top four places that Patrick Marleau could be traded to at or before the deadline.

The top four teams in the running according to Kurz are: Anaheim, St. Louis, Nashville and the Rangers. Of course, he may not be traded and remain in San Jose. Marleau has a no-trade clause which could make things difficult to a certain extent. Marleau has 15 goals and 32 points with a minus-16 rating this season which is nothing special for poolies.
Feb 9 - 10:12 AM

Patrick Marleau has scored one goal in his last 12 games.

The marker was an empty netter against Arizona on Jan. 21. Marleau has 15 goals and 31 points in 47 games this season. He also owns a team-worst minus-14 rating, but coach Pete DeBoer isn't worried about Marleau's lack of success on the scoresheet. He likes the way Marleau has been playing despite his scoring slump.
Jan 26 - 4:19 PM

Jeremy Roenick said on radio that the players of the San Jose Sharks would not be upset if Patrick Marleau was traded.

"He’s still very, very good and very effective. But, I don’t see him being one of the locker room favorites. So, if they get rid of him, I don’t think it’s going to make a huge impact with the team," Roenick said. "But, what they get back in return could be a huge impact. As good of a player as he is, Joe Thornton is the most popular player in the locker room, by far. I think Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture are right behind him. When you have a guy that’s been in that locker room his whole career and he is not thought of like that, that raises questions." Marleau has 15 goals and 31 points in 46 games with a minus-14 rating and only six penalty minutes.
