Patrick Marleau retires after 23-year NHL career

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) For 23 seasons, Patrick Marleau woke up each day preparing to play hockey and that helped him eventually break Gordie Howe's record for most games played in the NHL.

After a difficult year away from the game hoping another team would call and offer him a chance, Marleau announced his retirement Tuesday, ending a career that featured a record 1,779 games, 566 goals, two Olympic gold medals and nearly every significant San Jose Sharks record.

"It's been hard," Marleau said about his first season away from the game he started playing as a 3-year-old in Saskatchewan. "I've played this game that much all my life and I love it. I'm getting a whole new respect for my wife and my family and all the things that they had to go through when I was gone, just the day to day. But that's my new challenge, and that's what I'm looking forward to doing now. I can't wait to become the best father and husband I can be."
