Patrick Marleau scored and assisted on another but it wasn't enough as the Sharks blew two leads in a 5-4 loss to Minnesota on Thursday.
That's four points in his last four games for the 37-year-old who can still be effective at the NHL level. He added four shots on goal in just over 16 and a half minutes of ice-time. That's 11 goals and seven assists for 18 points 39 games. Joel Ward also scored and picked up an assist while Joe Pavelski and Joonas Donskoi scored the other goals. Jan 6 - 3:26 AM

Patrick Marleau scored a goal and recorded an assist in a 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday.

Marleau opened the scoring 16:29 into the first period on the power play, his 10th goal of the year. It is his first career game-winning goal against the Flyers, giving him at least one game-winning goal against 29 NHL teams. However, he stills has only 15 points in 36 games this season and doesn't hold much fantasy value.

The San Jose Sharks are making some tweaks to their struggling power play.

San Jose has stuck with Brent Burns, Joe Thornton, Joe Pavelski, Patrick Marleau and Logan Couture for years, but changes needed to be made after the team has gone just 4-for-35 since Dec. 9. So head coach Pete DeBoer decide to take Marleau off the top unit during Wednesday's practice and replaced him with Joel Ward. "We’re looking at different options. We’re kind of at that point," DeBoer said. "I think we need to explore everything. Like every decision you make, you try and let it run its course and give it as much time as you can, but obviously it’s not where we want it to be right now." Marleau found himself on the second unit.

Patrick Marleau is still only 10 goals shy of 500 for his career.

San Jose's former captain, greatest player, and likely future Hall of Famer, sits tied with Norm Ullman for 47th all-time in goals. He would pass Hall members, Jean Ratelle and Glenn Anderson before tying Lanny McDonald en route to the illustrious 500-goal mark.

Patrick Marleau recorded an assist in the Sharks' 3-2 shootout win over Toronto Tuesday night.

Marleau is on a three-game point streak. He has seven goals and 11 points in 29 contests in 2016-17.

Patrick Marleau scored his sixth goal of the season, with only 22.5 seconds left in regulation, to give San Jose a 3-2 win over the Islanders on Friday.

With the tally the career-Shark now has seven points in 21 games this season. He sits just 13 goals shy of 500 for his career, which considering his 11.1 shooting percentage, he just might reach before season's end.

Patrick Marleau scored his 486th career goal at the 6:43 minute mark of the first period as the San Jose Sharks routed the New Jersey Devils 4-0 Monday night.

Marleau was part of an interesting pattern of goals. His sunk puck came with the teams at even strength. Chris Tierney scored a shorthanded goal earlier in the first, Logan Couture put one in the net during a power play, and Brent Burns was credited with a puck that was knocked in by Kyle Quincey. Tierney gets the tough man designation of the night after taking a shot to the nose early in the third; he went to the locker room for attention, but quickly returned to the ice.

Patrick Marleau moved up to the top line on Saturday and he is expected to stay there for the start of Monday's match with New Jersey.

"He did a tremendous job, just working," Joe Pavelski said of Marleau. "We turned over a lot of pucks, had some chances, had some looks. That's how we have to play." Marleau has scored four goals and one assist in 18 games this year.

Patrick Marleau is hoping to play beyond the 2016-17 campaign.

"Yeah. Oh yeah. Yeah," Marleau said when he was asked if he wants to continue his career beyond this season. Marleau is 37 years old and he'll celebrate his 38th birthday before the 2017-18 campaign begins. He's also in the final season of his three-year, $20 million deal. He might end up needing to move to a new team to extend his career, but as long as he's decent this season there's a good chance he'll attract some interest on the open market. So far he has three goals and four points in 10 games.

Patrick Marleau drew first blood in the San Jose Sharks contest against the Arizona Coyotes Tuesday night, but it was not enough to stem their 3-2 loss.

This snapped a four-game streak in which Marleau was unable to find the back of the net although he had one assist in that span. Notably, his most recent goal before Tuesday night also came in a 3-2 loss to the Penguins on October 20th.

Patrick Marleau scored a goal in the Sharks' 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh Thursday night.

It was Marleau's second goal of the 2016-17 campaign. He's now 17 goals shy of the 500 milestone.

Patrick Marleau scored the game winning goal in the San Jose Sharks 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets Saturday night.

This was Marleau’s first goal of the game and season. It appeared to be an insurance goal as it put the Sharks up 3-1—and as it turned out they needed the insurance because the Jackets’ Josh Anderson scored only nine seconds later. Last year Marleau scored 25 goals in 82 games, which equaled about one every third contest.

Patrick Marleau was "a little under the weather" on Saturday.

Coach Peter DeBoer said it's "nothing too serious" though. He believes that Marleau should be back on Tuesday.
Sat, Oct 1, 2016 04:25:00 PM

Patrick Marleau may start on the third line in 2016-17.

The Sharks have some decisions to make at training camp. If Timo Meier makes the team then he could end up playing on the top line and Mikkel Boedker may skate alongside Logan Couture. That could leave Marleau at center or left wing on the third unit. Marleau, who has seen his play decline in the last two years, can become an unrestricted free agent next summer. It's unclear what his future with the Sharks will be, but playing for a new deal could motivate him.

Patrick Marleau wants to stay with the San Jose Sharks.

"Yeah, I have a contract for next year, so looking forward to it," he said. Marleau reportedly indicated to the Sharks earlier this past season that he wouldn't mind being traded to some approved teams. He has full no-trade and no-move clauses in his contract. The veteran forward finally reached the Stanley Cup Final in 2016, but the Sharks ended up losing in six games to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
