The San Jose Sharks bring back fan-favorite Patrick Marleau

The San Jose Sharks have brought back fan-favorite Patrick Marleau on a one year deal for $700K.

San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has signed unrestricted free agent forward Patrick Marleau to a one-year contract.

“Patrick is one of the most iconic players in San Jose Sharks history, as well as being one of the most respected veterans in the National Hockey League,” said Wilson. “The leadership he brings on and off the ice has been well documented over his fantastic NHL career and his competitive fire to win is still burning strong. Patrick’s lead-by-example demeanor is inspiring and continues to resonate with our group of younger players.”

There are no trades restrictions in the Marleau contract, although needless to say his long relationship with the Sharks basically ensures he won’t be moved against his will.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
