Marleau will make his season debut on Thursday.
Marleau was sitting, waiting for a contract before inking a one-year deal with the Sharks late last night. He was at Wednesday’s practice skating on the top line with Logan Couture and Timo Meier, so he could have some punt value in daily contests. He had 16 goals on 161 shots (9.9 SH%) and 21 assists (37 points) in 82 games a season ago.
The Sharks have signed Patrick Marleau to a one-year deal worth $700K.
In his 21st NHL season, Marleau had 16 goals and 21 assists (37 points) in 82 games with the Maple Leafs. He ended up being traded to the Hurricanes and subsequently bought out this summer.

The Hurricanes will buyout Patrick Marleau.
It was expected that Carolina would buy Marleau out after acquiring him from Toronto but GM Don Waddell confirmed it on Thursday. The Hurricanes received a first and seventh-round to take on the $6.25M cap-hit that comes with buying him out. It is believed that Marleau wants to return to San Jose to close out his career.
The Carolina Hurricanes acquired Patrick Marleau, a conditional 2020 first-round pick and a 2020 seventh-round pick from the Maple Leafs for a 2020 sixth round pick.
Marleau has one-year left on his contract that carries a $6.25M cap-hit that the Maple Leafs wanted to move in order to clear space to sign restricted free agents Mitch Marner, Andreas Johansson and Kasperi Kapanen. Marleau has not missed a game since the 2009 season but had just 16 goals and 21 assists (37 points) in 2018-19. Carolina might buy the 39-year-old winger out.

Patrick Marleau is in the building today, but still not skating. It's the third straight practice he's missed due to illness.
With the team not playing until Friday, then can afford to rest their number one LW. The former captain has not missed a game since the 2008-2009 campaign, so don't expect him to sit out.
