Thank you, Patrick.

The San Jose Sharks paid tribute to the former face of their franchise on Sunday, thanking Patrick Marleau with a full-page ad in The Mercury News.

A longtime member of the Sharks, Marleau had been a part of the club for 19 seasons prior to his joining the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent.

Marleau was originally drafted by the Sharks second overall in 1997. He appeared in nearly 1,500 games with San Jose, netting 508 goals and 574 assists to become the franchise leader in games, goals, and points.

Marleau, 37, landed a three-year deal with the Maple Leafs that will see him take home nearly $19 million.
