The Sharks have signed Patrick Marleau to a three-year contract extension with an annual cap-hit of $6.66 million US.
Marleau has 21 goals and 26 assists (47 points) in 51 games this season with the Sharks. Marleau is currently in his 16th season with the Sharks, he has 908 points (425G / 483A) in 1215 career NHL games (all with SJ).
Marleau skating with Handzus and McGinn on third line, which again is the way it finished in the Minnesota loss.
Marleau was demoted to the third line and figures to stick there for at least another game. The former 2nd overall pick has 10 goals and 20 points through 24 games but hasn't posted a point in his last four games.
Marleau was back on the ice with his teammates on Thursday at HP Pavilion, skating with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski. He’ll be in the lineup on Friday when the Sharks play their first road game against Anaheim.
