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.
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.
Marleau garnered an assist in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Senators.
Marleau finally got on the scoresheet for the Penguins in his fourth game with the club. The veteran currently finds himself filling a top-six role playing with Evgeni Malkin. As long as he remains in that role, the winger should continue to be a top-end fantasy option on a nightly basis.
Marleau was brought in by the Penguins from the Sharks in exchange for a conditional 2021 third-round pick Monday, Josh Yohe of The Athletic reports.
The Penguins were expected to be in the market for a depth forward and get the veteran Marleau, who could still factor into a top-six role if needed. The 40-year-old has notched 10 goals and 10 helpers in 58 appearances this season and could miss the 30-point mark for the first time in his NHL career. Still, the move to Pittsburgh will give Marleau one last shot at lifting Lord Stanley's chalice.
Marleau (illness) will play in Monday's game versus the Flames, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The 40-year-old Marleau will avoid missing his first game since signing with the Sharks, and he's accrued 20 points (10 goals, 10 assists) through 51 games. He's played well and has been floating around the lineup, but he's designated for the top line in this matchup.
Marleau missed Saturday's practice with an illness, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Marleau picked up this bug on the road trip but was able to play both games. Although he didn't practice Saturday, he still has two days to heal up before Monday's matchup versus the Flames. If he's unable to go, however, Dylan Gambrell is expected to fill in on the top line.
Marleau produced an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Flames.
Marleau had the secondary helper on Evander Kane's second-period goal. The 40-year-old now has 20 points, 84 shots and a minus-3 rating through 50 games this season. Marleau is seeing top-line deployment with the Sharks' forward depth in shambles. He's only likely to help fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Marleau scored two goals, including the game-winner, in Monday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.
Marleau added four shots on goal and two blocked shots in the contest. The 40-year-old winger is up to 10 goals, 19 points and 80 shots through 47 games. He's on pace to reach 30 points by the end of the season, so Marleau may interest some fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Marleau recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Coyotes.
Marleau set up Timo Meier at 9:55 of the second period. Through 44 contests, Marleau is up to 17 points, 74 shots and a minus-2 rating. He should continue to see second-line minutes for the foreseeable future, but he's not likely to impact the fantasy game much at 40 years old.
Marleau tallied the game-winning goal and went plus-2 in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Stars. It was his 1,700th career game.
Marleau struck early in the second period, and that was all goalie Aaron Dell needed to lock up the win. Marleau ranks fifth in league history with 1,700 games played. He's amassed 1,182 points (559 goals, 623 assists) in his career -- ranking 51st in league history in points and one goal back of Guy Lafleur for 26th all-time. This season, Marleau has 16 points, 72 shots on goal and a minus-1 rating in 43 contests.
Marleau scored a goal, dished two hits and added two PIM in Saturday's 6-1 drubbing of the Flyers.
Marleau's goal was the last in the game, scored at 17:20 of the third period. The 40-year-old is up to seven goals and 14 points in 36 contests this season, and he has three points in his last two outings.
Marleau notched two helpers in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings.
Marleau set up goals by Erik Karlsson and Joe Thornton to stake the Sharks to a 2-0 lead in the second period. The pair of helpers ended a career-worst 11-game point drought for Marleau. He's now at 13 points, 59 shots on goal and a minus-5 rating through 35 contests.
Marleau scored the game-winning goal in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kings.
Jonathan Quick misplayed the puck in the extra frame, and Marleau was there to fire it home. The 40-year-old forward had gone five games without a point prior to the decisive tally Monday. Marleau is up to 10 points in 21 contests this season, with the goal being his first game-winner of the year.
Marleau scored a goal and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.
Marleau tallied at 11:12 of the first period for the Sharks' third and final goal in the first period. He's up to four goals and nine points through 15 games. It's possible the 40-year-old could return to the 40-point plateau after missing that mark last year for just the third time in his lengthy career. The previous two times came in his rookie campaign and the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season.
Marleau collected an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Thursday's 6-5 win over the Wild.
Marleau set up Marcus Sorensen for the third of four Sharks goals in the opening period. The 40-year-old is up to eight points through 13 games. He's not likely to add much outside of scoring -- Marleau's produced 16 hits and 22 shots on goal this year -- but fantasy owners in deeper formats might want to kick the tires on the veteran winger.
Marleau scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Blackhawks.
Marleau was playing in his 800th consecutive contest, an impressive feat for any player let alone the 40-year-old future Hall-of-Famer. Marleau has seven points in 12 games for the Sharks this year. All three of his tallies have come against the Blackhawks, as well.
Marleau notched two assists in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres.
The 40-year-old has given the Sharks an immediate spark since rejoining the club, scoring two goals and five points in five games after signing with San Jose after the regular season had begun. Marleau won't be able to maintain that pace at this stage of his career, but he's skating with Logan Couture at even strength and seeing some power-play time, so he could remain productive even after he slows down.
Marleau provided an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Flames.
The 40-year-old forward now has three points in two games since joining the Sharks. It's not a surprise that both games have been wins. Marleau most likely won't come anywhere near a point-per-game pace, but he produced 37 points in 82 games for the Maple Leafs last year. He could crack the 30-point threshold regardless of where he is in the lineup.
Marleau scored a pair of goals and had a team-high six shots and five hits in a 5-4 win over Chicago on Thursday.
That was some kind of return to San Jose for the 40-year-old, who spent the past two seasons in Toronto after 19 seasons with the Sharks. Marleau was acquired and bought out by Carolina in the offseason and finally inked a deal with San Jose earlier this week. He has not missed a game since 2012-13 and totaled 43 goals in his two seasons in Toronto, so keep an eye on him despite his age.
Marleau will make his season debut Thursday against Chicago, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Marleau skated on the top line and second power-play unit during Wednesday's practice, so it appears as though the Sharks aren't going to waste any time getting the recently-resigned vet heavily involved. The 40-year-old forward notched 16 goals and 37 points in 82 games with Toronto last season, but he could still be capable of reaching the 27-goal, 47-point form he displayed in 2017-18, so he's definitely worth a pickup in most fantasy formats.
