PITTSBURGH (AP) - Patrick Marleau has been chasing the Stanley Cup for 22 seasons. The veteran winger hopes a move to Pittsburgh will finally let him catch it.
San Jose dealt the 40-year-old Marleau to the Penguins during Monday's trade deadline. The struggling Sharks will get a 2021 third-round pick from the Penguins that becomes a second-rounder if Pittsburgh wins the title this year. The Penguins denied Marleau and San Jose during the franchise's lone appearance in the Cup finals in 2016, taking the series in six games.
