Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Likely to play despite injury
Marleau is expected to suit up against Colorado on Wednesday despite dealing with a lower-body issue, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Marleau hasn't missed a game since April 9, 2009, so it would no doubt be disappointing to do so now with just four games remaining in the 2020-21 campaign. Considering the winger managed just nine points this year, it will be interesting to see if he is willing to come back for another year or if he'll retire after securing the all-time games-played record....

Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Sets all-time games played record
Marleau skated in his 1,768th regular-season contest in Monday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Golden Knights.
Marleau surpassed Gordie Howe for the NHL's all-time record for games played (regular season). The 41-year-old Marleau had one shot on goal and a hit in 17:21 of ice time in the momentous appearance. The games played record including playoff appearances is 1,992 by Mark Messier -- Marleau has 1,963 and would need to play in 2021-22 to have a chance to surpassing that milestone as well. He has eight points, 43 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through 45 contests this year.... See More ... See Less

Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Tallies with man advantage
Marleau scored a power-play goal on three shots and went minus-2 in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Ducks.
Marleau potted the Sharks' lone goal early in the second period. The 41-year-old forward is up to seven points, 40 shots on net and 28 hits through 38 contests. Marleau needs six more games played to tie Gordie Howe for the NHL record. If he stays in the lineup, he'd match the record on April 17 versus the Wild and surpass it two days later against the Golden Knights.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Gets on scoresheet with PPG
Marleau scored a power-play goal on three shots and added two hits in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes.
Marleau ended a goal drought of 15 games with his second tally of the year. He had also gone eight contests without a point. The 41-year-old hasn't done much on offense in 2020-21 with just six points through 32 appearances. He's added 34 shots on goal and 27 hits, but there's little reason for fantasy managers to consider the veteran for their rosters.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Goal drought comes to an end
Marleau tallied a goal on his only shot in a 5-4 win over St. Louis on Saturday.
Marleau extended San Jose's lead to 4-1 with an easy backdoor tap-in 8:18 into the second period. It was the first goal in 16 game this season for Marleau, who had provided just three assists and 13 shots on goal entering the night. The venerable 41-year-old, in his second year of his second tour of duty with the Sharks, is strictly a role player at this stage of his terrific career.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Notches assist
Marleau posted an assist and two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blues.
Marleau had the secondary helper on a go-ahead goal by John Leonard in the second period, but that lead didn't hold up. The 41-year-old Marleau is up to three assists, 13 shots on goal and a minus-4 rating through 15 contests. He'll likely remain in a bottom-six role barring injuries among Sharks forwards....

Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Third all-time in games played
Marleau recorded an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Kings.
Marleau passed Jaromir Jagr for third place on the all-time games played list. Marleau has appeared in 1,734 regular-season contests, and he could beat Gordie Howe's record of 1,767 games if he stays healthy. The 41-year-old has racked up only two assists and a minus-2 rating in 11 appearances this year, mostly in a fourth-line role with a trace of power-play time.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Records assist
Marleau posted an assist in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Wild.
Marleau's helper on Matt Nieto's lone tally was the former's first point of the year. In five games, Marleau has added a minus-1 rating and five hits despite skating in just a fourth-line role. The 41-year-old former superstar may struggle to top 15 points in 2020-21 as he plays out what could very well be the last season of his career.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Back with San Jose
Marleau signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Sharks on Tuesday.
Marleau was decent while filling a middle-six role in 2019-20, picking up 22 points in 66 contests split between the Sharks and Penguins. The 41-year-old winger is just 45 games shy of passing Gordie Howe's NHL record of 1,767 games played, so it would hardly be surprising to see him hang up his skates for good after presumably setting the record this season. It's hard to imagine Marleau being more productive in 2020-21 than he was last year, so he'll be a fringe fantasy option at best in most formats.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Patrick Marleau: Pots first goal as Penguin
Marleau scored his 11th goal of the season in Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Hurricanes.
His 562nd career tally was also his first with Pittsburgh. Marleau continues to fill a top-six role for his new club, but with only two points through seven games, he hasn't exactly made a big impact yet.... See More ... See Less
