Patrick Marleau Returns To San Jose

Sharks bring back 40-year-old Patrick Marleau for 2nd stint

The winger potted 27 goals and 20 assists in his first 82 games with the blue and white before a 16-goal, 37-point effort in his second year in Toronto.

During the 2018-19 campaign, Kotkov led the Saguenéens in scoring with 61 points (34g, 27a) across 65 appearances.

The team on Wednesday signed the 40-year-old Marleau, who is the franchise leader in games (1,493), goals (508) and points (1,082).

That all changed following the rough start for San Jose, and now Marleau is back in teal.

Turkey Begins an Offensive Against Kurdish Fighters in Syria
An activist collective known as Raqqa is being Silently Slaughtered reported an exchange of fire and an explosion. Turkish warplanes on Wednesday bombed parts of north-eastern Syria as part of the country's military offensive.

Sharks GM Doug Wilson said that Marleau's agent, Pat Brisson, asked him to keep them in the loop if the Sharks needed to add a veteran player. It also says a lot about where the team stands just three games into the season.

The 6-2, 218-pound center will finally return to his original team that now features a banged-up supporting cast and looks to again return to the Western Conference Final and is still hungry for its first Stanley Cup Final.

He came under criticism at times for playoff disappointments but remained a fan favourite and was warmly welcomed back the past two years as a visitor with Toronto. "He's in unbelievable shape. It's like he's not even breathing". San Jose only has scored one goal per game through its first few contests and the power play is a dismal 0-for-14. The two were the faces of the franchise during more than a decade together after Thornton arrived during the 2005-06 season and made the Sharks a perennial contender. The team lost three forwards to free agency in the offseason: wingers Joonas Donskoi and Gustav Nyquist, and center Joe Pavelski, the team's captain who left a leadership void in the dressing room. Marleau ranks fifth all-time in games played, trailing record-holder Gordie Howe by 110 for the most in National Hockey League history.
