Captain Patrick Marleau Tabbed As Seagate Technology "Sharks Player of the Month" For January

by Staff Writer / San Jose Sharks
January 2007 was a good month for Captain Patrick Marleau. Along with his second selection to play in the NHL All-Star Game, Marleau was named the Seagate Technology “Sharks Player of the Month” for January. He was presented with the award prior to the Sharks game against the Dallas Stars on Feb. 1 at HP Pavilion.
 
MarleauMarleau appeared in all 11 games for the Sharks in January, leading the team in points (8-11=19). The 6-foot-2, 220-pound native of Aneroid, Saskatchewan scored three of the Sharks seven game-winning goals in January. Changing to left wing from his normal center position, he posted at least three points in five games during the month.   
 
Through games played on Feb. 7, Marleau is tied for 11th in the NHL in power play goals (12), leads the League in game-winning goals (9), eighth in PP points (30), 12th in points (62) and tied for 10th in goals (28).
 
For the Western Conference All-Star Team, he scored the team’s fourth goal, against future Hall-of-Famer Martin Brodeur. He also narrowly missed winning the Fastest Skater Competition in the SuperSkills event the night before, posting a laptime of 14.08 seconds. Anaheim's Andy MacDonald won with 14.03.     
 
This marks the fourth time Marleau has been named Seagate Technology “Sharks Player of the Month” (November 2005, December 2003 and November 2002). Last season, Marleau was a finalist for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, awarded for Sportsmanship and Gentlemanly Conduct as voted by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.
 
Established in the 1996-97 season, the Seagate Technology “Sharks Player of the Month” program honors the Sharks player(s) who have contributed most to the team’s success each month. Seagate Technology will donate $2,500 on behalf of the player(s) to The Sharks Foundation. In addition, one player will be selected as the Seagate Technology “Sharks Player of the Year” at the conclusion of the season and Seagate Technology will donate $5,000 on his behalf to The Sharks Foundation. Seagate Technology has donated more than $220,000 to The Sharks Foundation since the program's inception.
