Patrick Marleau would like to re-sign with the San Jose Sharks.
"Yeah, it would be nice. We’ll see if that’s an option," Marleau said. "A lot of time here before this decision needs to be made." He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He's spent his entire 1,493-game career with San Jose, but there's a good chance that the Sharks will be looking elsewhere this summer. Among other things, they will be looking to re-sign Martin Jones and Marc-Edouard Vlasic, who each have one season left on their contracts, but will probably require big raises that start in 2018-19.
