The 34-year-old Marleau is in his 16th season with the Sharks and has 10 goals and 20 points in 21 games. He leads all Sharks forwards in ice time, averaging 20:23 per game. His 10 goals are second on the club to rookie Tomas Hertl’s 12 and his 20 points is third behind Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton, who each have 22.
