Marleau will announce future of Sharks hockey career next week


Is Patrick Marleau going to officially announce his retirement this Tuesday?

The San Jose Sharks announced today that Marleau would hold a press conference at SAP Center this Tuesday at 11 AM to “make an announcement regarding the future of his hockey career.” Sharks president Jonathan Becher and interim general manager Joe Will will be among those in attendance.

The 42-year-old hasn’t played since the 2020-21 campaign. He finished that season with the San Jose Sharks with four goals and five assists in 56 games.

If this is indeed Patrick Marleau’s farewell, he will retire as the NHL’s leader in All-Time Games Played at 1,779. He broke Gordie Howe’s hallowed record last season on Apr. 19 in Las Vegas. He will also depart at 910 Consecutive Games Played, the fifth-longest mark in NHL history.

Patrick Marleau was drafted second overall by the San Jose Sharks in the 1997 NHL Draft, behind fellow Sharks legend Joe Thornton.
