The Patrick Marleau reunion tour is still going strong.

Just days after the Pittsburgh Penguins forward returned to the Bay Area to play the San Jose Sharks, Marleau and his family hosted Auston Matthews and Mitchell Marner for dinner at their home.

Marner and Matthews became a part of the Marleau family during their two seasons together with the Toronto Maple Leafs. With Patrick and the Penguins playing the Sharks on Saturday, and Toronto in town to play San Jose on Tuesday, the family broke bread together.

Marleau, who San Jose traded to Pittsburgh on Feb. 24, received a big ovation from the SAP Center crowd Saturday. His wife Christina, who shared the photo of the family with Matthews and Marner, also shared her range of emotions before the game.
