Patrick Marleau LW SAN 15 Hrs

Marleau scored two goals -- one an empty-netter -- and notched an assist in Thursday's win over the Red Wings. He finished plus-3 with two PIM.

Fine work by Marleau, propelling him over the 50-point mark for the 11th time in his career. Unfortunately, his fantasy owners have come to expect 60-plus, if not 70 points, so this season can only qualify as a disappointment for the veteran forward.

Marleau chipped in an assist in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Senators.

The assist helped Marleau snap a seven-game point drought, which has only been his second-longest slide of the season. With 15 goals, 49 points, and a minus-19 rating over 73 games, the end of the road may only be a couple years away for Marleau, who will turn 36 in September. He's on track to finish with his worst scoring output for a full season since 2007-08, and could deliver a career-worst mark in plus/minus rating.

Marleau rattled off a pair of assists, a plus-2 rating and two penalty minutes Tuesday in a 6-2 win over Vancouver.

That's a four-game point streak for the veteran now, in which he's got three goals and now these two helpers. It's also nice to see him finish on the positive side of the plus-minus ledger, as he'd managed to do that only one time in the prior eight games and had gone minus-7 in that span, cratering his season number to minus-16 before he pulled it up two notches Tuesday. At 35 years old, Marleau isn't the scorer he once was, but he's still been plenty productive if you can take the rating hit.

Marleau scored his 15th goal of the season -- and fourth in five games -- in Monday's 4-0 shutout victory over the visiting Canadiens.

Marleau has a nice little three-game goal streak on the go, inching himself closer to the 20-goal plateau for what would be the 13th time in his career. His overall numbers this year are still a disappointment -- 15 goals, 46 points, a minus-16 rating and 188 SOG after posting 33 goals, 70 points, an even rating and 285 SOG last season -- but there's still plenty of value to be had here. Keep him active and cross your fingers that he stays motivated as the Sharks will need a total team effort if they hope to make the playoffs for the 11th straight season.

Marleau scored one of two San Jose goals in Saturday's loss to Ottawa.

He's now netted goals in consecutive games, with both coming on the power play. Marleau was stuck in a long scoring slumber from about mid-December to mid-January, but seems to have turned the corner since. He's been responsible for seven goals and 10 assists over his last 19 games.

Marleau was credited with two assists in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Capitals.Marleau also won all three of his faceoffs on the night, one of which directly resulted in Brent Burns' second goal in a 22-second span in the second period. While Marleau has endured some rough patches this season -- most notably, a 16-game goal drought that was his longest in nearly 13 years -- he's managed to compile 41 points over 56 games. Even at age 35, Marleau still warrants universal fantasy ownership.

Marleau scored his 11th goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's loss to the Hurricanes.

After a rough stretch with only one point in 14 games, Marleau now has four goals and 11 points in his last 10 games. Skating on the second line with Logan Couture, Marleau will need to continue delivering down the stretch if the Sharks hope to make the playoffs. With an impressive 162 shots on goal and four power-play tallies on the year, Marleau has gotten himself back on track. Use him accordingly.

Marleau posted his second consecutive two-point game and third in the last four Thursday, picking up a goal and a power-play assist while going plus-2.

Marleau's heated up dramatically over the last five, potting three goals to go with four assists, and four of those points have come on the man advantage. It's been a down year, but maybe the veteran forward is primed for a big second half. It's hard to keep a seven-time 30-goal man down.

Marleau scored his ninth goal of the season and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

Marleau's goal-scoring woes have been well documented this season, so it was nice to see him pick up his second in four games after a 16-game drought. Despite the nine tallies, Marleau should still easily hit the 20-goal mark for the 13th time in his career, as his current 6.1 shooting percentage on 147 shots is well below his career mark of 13.5, so don't be surprised if he goes off on a few scoring binges coming out of the All-Star break.

Marleau notched two assists in Saturday's win over the Flames.

Marleau now has points in back-to-back games after managing just one assist in his previous 14 games. The 35-year-old now has eight goals and 31 points in 46 games on the season, to go with an ugly plus-9 rating. He's playing much better of late, though, recording 10 shots on goal in his last two outings, giving him 138 shots on goal on the season -- 22nd most in the NHL. While he's been inconsistent, Marleau is still a solid fantasy option and who should still end up with around 60 points.
