“He’s not gonna talk about himself.”
That’s Patrick Marleau, according to Patrick Rissmiller, Marleau’s teammate from 2003-08 with the San Jose Sharks.

So I reached out to a host of past and present teammates and coaches – Peter DeBoer, Marcel Goc, Tony Granato, Erik Karlsson, Mitch Marner, Auston Matthews, Alyn McCauley, Kyle McLaren, Todd McLellan, Timo Meier, Mike Ricci, Rissmiller, Jody Shelley, Marco Sturm, Joe Thornton, and Marc-Edouard Vlasic – to get a glimpse of another side of Marleau.
What raunchy comedy movie did Marleau always used to quote? What’s Marleau’s most memorable…dance move? Which Hall of Famer’s book helped teach a teenage Marleau how to skate so fast? And what is the origin of the Marleau routine of jumping into the cold tub between periods?
