Even at 41 years old, Patrick Marleau believes he has more left in the tank.

"I feel like I still have a lot to give," Marleau told reporters Thursday, according to the Teal Town USA podcast. "I'm eager to have a really good season next season."

Marleau said he hasn't discussed a possible return to the San Jose Sharks with general manager Doug Wilson, but will talk to him soon.

The veteran forward recorded four goals and five assists in 56 games this past season. He admitted he wasn't happy with his play at times.

"There were some pretty sleepless nights with that, but I'm looking forward to a rebound season next year," he said, according to Curtis Pashelka of the Bay Area News Group.

Marleau played in his 1,768th game on April 19, passing Gordie Howe for the most in NHL history.
