Patrick Marleau signs 3-year contract with Maple Leafs

Patrick Marleau is taking his talents to the city of Toronto. Marleau was originally selected by San Jose with the second overall selection in the 1997 NHL Draft.

Marleau, 37, has spent his entire 20-year career in the Bay Area, and is coming off a very productive season in which he scored 27 goals - his highest total in three years. I've seen some people worry that the Sharks haven't announced that deal yet - and, it's true that he hadn't put pen to paper as of Saturday - but Thornton has committed to return to the Sharks on a one-year deal.

In that time, he has become the franchise leader with 508 goals, 1,082 points and 1,493 games played.


"I still think I can contribute and play", Marleau said.

"The annual average value of the contract is $6.25 million", the announcement read.

Marleau has represented Canada several times, capturing two Olympic gold medals (2010, 2014), one World Cup gold medal (2004), as well as one gold (2003) and one silver (2005) medal at the IIHF World Hockey Championships.


I tend to think, too, that Thornton - despite turning 38 today - can put up better numbers than he did last season when he had seven goals and 43 assists.

Marleau is also incredibly durable - he's missed just 31 games in his Sharks career, and hasn't missed a single one in the last four seasons.
