The San Jose Sharks have just traded away one of the most iconic players in the history of their franchise.

According to a breaking news report from TSN National Hockey League insider Pierre LeBrun, the Sharks have traded veteran forward Patrick Marleau to the Pittsburgh Penguins. It sounds like this one is not quite yet official as the trade call is still pending, although I suspect that we will likely see the Penguins giving up some kind of late round pick in exchange for Marleau. 

Update: Sounds like the Penguins gave up a third round draft pick for Marleau. According to TSN's Pierre LeBrun it will be a conditional pick, if the Penguins win the Stanley Cup it becomes a second round draft pick.

Stay tuned for more details on this one.
