Patrick Marleau is open to a trade from the San Jose Sharks, the 41-year-old forward told The Athletic.

"I wouldn't actively maybe look for it, but if it does happen or it does come, or a team wants me, that's something you have to seriously consider," Marleau said in remarks published Sunday. "Obviously, that's still my goal, to win a Stanley Cup. It would definitely be something to consider."

Marleau can became an unrestricted free agent after this season and said he'd like to continue his NHL career.
