SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The San Jose Sharks locked up two of their cornerstone players before they could hit the open market this summer, signing three-year extensions Friday with captain Joe Thornton and franchise leading goal-scorer Patrick Marleau. The contracts prevent the two stars from becoming unrestricted free agents this summer and keep them under contract with the Sharks through the 2016-17 season. "Patrick and Joe continue to perform at an elite level in the National Hockey League and, most importantly, they make the other players around them better," general manager Doug Wilson said. "They both made it very clear that they wanted to stay in San Jose and we were able to agree on contracts that fit with our team building philosophy." According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com, Thorntons deal is worth $6.75 million per season, or just over $20 million over three years with a full no-movement clause, while Marleau will get $6.66 million per year, or just under $20 million over the same term. Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com is reporting Marleaus deal also has a no-movement clause. Thornton and Marleau were the top two picks in the 1997 draft with Thornton going to Boston and Marleau to San Jose. The Sharks acquired Thornton in a deal on Nov. 30, 2005, and the two have helped the Sharks win the most regular-season games in the NHL since that time. But despite all that success, San Jose is still searching for its first trip to the Stanley Cup finals. The Sharks lost the Western Conference finals in 2010 and 2011, and were knocked out in seven games in the second round last season against Los Angeles. San Jose is poised for another run this season and is currently fifth in the league with 72 points. Even at 34 years old, Thornton and Marleau are still playing at an elite level. Thornton leads the NHL with 47 assists and is sixth with 53 points. Marleau was picked for the Canadian Olympic team and has 21 goals and 26 assists this season. Thornton has 1,171 career points, the most of any player since he entered the league in 1997-98. He is currently 25th on the NHLs all-time assist list with 834 and 48th on the career points list. Marleau has played all 1,216 career games with San Jose, notching 425 goals and 483 assists. He is fourth in the league in goals the past six seasons with 187 and is 72nd all-time. Marleau ranks first on the Sharks career list for points, goals, power play goals, short-handed goals, game-winning goals and shots. Wilson has always done a good job locking up his key players before they hit free agency at below market prices. Thornton is taking a slight pay cut from his expiring three-year deal that pays him an average of $7 million a year. Marleau also took a slight pay cut from the four-year deal that pays him an average of $6.9 million a year. With these deals done, the Sharks have locked up almost all of their important players before free agency starts in July. The one key remaining potential unrestricted free agent is 37-year-old defenceman Dan Boyle. The Sharks have already reached long-term deals with defenceman Marc-Edouard Vlasic, and forwards Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns.

After a few minutes, he stepped away, hugged a few people and shook a few hands before taking a seat behind the desk. He may have ended his career on a losing note, but the 70-year-old Johnson was perfectly at ease after a big-league career that spanned six decades. A.J. Pollock beat out a run-scoring infield single in the eighth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks sent the Washington manager into retirement with a loss by beating the Nationals 3-2 on Sunday. "Time to go home," Johnson said. "Put me out to pasture." Johnson already had his career commemorated during a ceremony in Washington and was recognized by the Diamondbacks before Sundays game, doffing his cap as he stepped out of the dugout. After taking the lineup card to home plate for the final time, he spent the next nine innings as he always does, offering positive reinforcement to his players while pulling the strings to get one last win. He ended up just short in the finale. After losing the series first two games, the Diamondbacks scratched out a pair of runs off Ryan Mattheus (0-2) in the eighth inning to finish the season at .500 (81-81). Martin Prado had a run-scoring single in the inning and Pollock dove into first safely after hitting a comebacker that bounced off Mattheus. David Hernandez (5-6) pitched a perfect eighth and Brad Ziegler closed out the ninth for his 13th save for the Diamondbacks, who played 1,538 innings this season to break the major league record set by the 1964 Yankees. It was a disappointing end to Johnsons career, but the Nationals still finished 11 games above.500 at 86-76 and are set up for success long after hes gone. "A good manager builds confidence in his players and we benefited from that because he never wavered, no matter how good or bad you were doing," Nationals right-hander Tyler Clippard said. "He always put you out there and expected you to succeed and, for the most part, I think we did." Johnson leaves with quite a legacy built over 17 years as a manager and 13 as a player. He won a World Series with the Mets in 1986 and joined Billy Martin as the only managers to take four teams to the post-season when he led the Nationals to the playoffs last season while earning his second manager of the year award at 69. He also went to the post-seaason with Cincinnati and Baltimore.dddddddddddd Johnson was a four-time All-Star as a player, earned three Gold Gloves and won a pair of World Series rings with the Orioles in 1966 and 1970. He goes out on a losing note, capping a season of unfulfilled expectations for Washington. The Nationals won the NL East and had the best record in baseball last season, so the bar was set high, particularly with a loaded lineup like theirs. Washington dropped below .500 after a rough stretch around the All-Star break before making a September run, but couldnt catch the surging Atlanta Braves. Johnson finishes his career 1,372-1,071. "Im not dropping off the face of the earth," said Johnson, who will serve as an adviser for the Nationals. "Ill still be around. I might even see you guys." The Diamondbacks won the NL West in 2011 and were expected to make another run after boosting payroll following a post-season-less 2012. Arizona looked like a playoff team the first half of the season, leading the division most of the way, but faded down the stretch, drifting well behind the Los Angeles Dodgers after the All-Star break and never able to make up the ground. The Diamondbacks at least ended on a good note. Arizona scored in the first inning on a sacrifice fly by Paul Goldschmidt after pitcher Tanner Roark had a throwing error on a sacrifice bunt. Zach Walters hit an RBI triple after Arizona third baseman Martin Prados throwing error in the sixth inning and Steve Lombardozzi put Washington up 2-1 with a run-scoring single. Roark allowed a run on three hits in seven innings. The Diamondbacks, like they have all season, never gave up, though, putting together a late rally that prevented their first losing season since 2010. "We as a team expected to be still paying right now," Diamondbacks shortstop Willie Bloomquist said. "I think that is where expectations need to stay. As a whole this year it has been disappointing even though we ended on a high note." Notes: Washington had won its previous four season finales. ... Johnson was 224-183 in three seasons with the Nationals. ... Goldschmidt had a single in the eighth inning to extend his hitting streak to 19 games. He also joined Mel Ott as the only NL players 25 under to hit .300 with 35 homers, 100 RBIs and 100 runs in a season. ...
