Pittsburgh (93.7 The Fan) - Forward Patrick Marleau played in only 8 games from the time he was traded to the Penguins Feb. 24 until play was halted March 12.  Marleau, 40,  patiently bides his time until his Penguins career and the chance for a first Stanley Cup can resume.

"The short amount of time I spent there was great," Marleau said from his home in San Jose Monday.  "The guys were great.  It's a great opportunity for myself to get another shot to winning the Cup with the Penguins.  Everything's been great with the organization.  They've helped every step of the way, and I'm looking forward to getting out of the house, like I'm sure everyon else is, and getting back to normal and start playing again."

Marleau knows it's going to take a concerted effort for a return to some sort of normalcy, let alone hockey games.  He encourages everyone to follow the social distancing recommendations.

"I think the sooner we do all the right things the sooner we'll be able to be in front of the fans and enjoying playing again and enjoying being with the fans."

Marleau was joined on the  NHL video call by his former Toronto Maple Leafs teammates Auston Matwithews and Mitch Marner, while Marleau's three sons assisted him on the call.

"I'm not going to lie, the home schooling thing's been a little tough on me," Marleau said.  "It's going good this week.  They're off, so it's a good week to take a break and regroup for that next week of home schooling."
