Patrick Marleau will be back in a Sharks jersey.

No, this isn’t the NHL on OLN.

The Sharks announced Monday, in conjunction with the Sharks Alumni Foundation, that there will be a Sharks Legends Game at Tech CU Arena on Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m.

This event is part of festivities that will culminate in Marleau’s jersey retirement Feb. 25 against the Chicago Blackhawks. Marleau’s No. 12 will be the first jersey retirement in franchise history.

Sharks and NHL alumni expected to attend the weekend’s events include Curtis Brown, Ryane Clowe, Adam Graves, Grier, Scott Hannan, Heatley, Bret Hedican, Shawn Heins, Kelly Hrudey, Nabokov, Nolan, Scott Parker, Tom Pederson, Ricci, Scott Thornton, Devin Setoguchi, Mark Smith, Ward, and Tommy Wingels.
