He took a full page to thank the city of San Jose where he’s lived for the majority of his life. His wife Christina, also tweeted it out earlier today:

San Jose’s all time leader in goals, points, games played, and countless records signed a three year deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs in July. Marleau was selected #2 overall by Team Teal in the 1997 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
The Leafs come to San Jose on October 30th.
