by San Jose Sharks @sanjosesharks /

Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson released the following statement after forward Patrick Marleau signed a three-year contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 2, 2017:

"Patrick has been a pillar of this franchise since he was drafted as a 17-year-old in 1997, and has become one of the elite players in our team's history," said Wilson. "He owns nearly every offensive record in Sharks history, scored some big goals for our team and helped shape San Jose into a true hockey city. While we were hoping he would choose to return to San Jose, we wish him the absolute best and want to thank Patrick, his wife Christina, and their children Landon, Brody, Jagger and Caleb for their time in San Jose, a place he has called home for nearly two decades."
