"Part of the reason I think he didn't end up with a team to this point is he's being selective about where he goes, wants to stay close to home with his family back in San Jose", Sportsnet's Chris Johnston said Saturday during Hockey Night in Canada.

After a winless start to the regular season, the San Jose Sharks are hoping an old friend named Patrick Marleau can bring some stability.

Kotkov, 19, returned to the QMJHL from the Sharks" training camp last week, where he netted a pair of goals in the opening frame against Halifax on October 4 to lift the Saguenéens to a 4-1 win over the Mooseheads, earning himself "First Star of the Game.' He has now logged three points (3g, 0a) on the season in just two games played.

The No. 2 pick in the 1997 NHL Draft was a casualty of a dire Maple Leafs salary cap situation that culminated with the team trading his $6.25-million average annual value to Carolina in July before the Hurricanes bought him out of the final year of his contract thus making him a free agent.

Head coach Toutai Kefu said more top-level matches are one of many ways World Rugby could help close the gap between the haves and the have nots.

Marleau has 551 goals and 615 assists in 1, 657 career games, including 788 in a row since he last missed a contest on April 7, 2009. But suspensions, injuries and San Jose's slow start changed the plan. He helped the team reach the final in the Stanley Cup Final in 2016, but never won it all. Thornton arrived during the 2005 - 391921 season and made the Sharks a perennial contender.

The and only scored three goals in the process. "He's in unbelievable shape".

A fixture in San Jose's top six forwards and on the No. 1 power play unit during his first stint there, Marleau figures to be more of a role player.

Marleau fell out of favor with the brass of the organization and saw his ice time dwindle over the course of the season.
