Following a long day at the hospital on Monday, Oct. 16, San Jose Sharks captain Patrick Marleau became a new father.  Son Landon Patrick was born via cesarean section shortly before 7 p.m.  He weighed 6 pounds, 15 ounces.

Patrick said that his wife, Christina, was induced at 7:30 a.m. but it failed to work so the doctors opted for a c-section that evening.

The 27-year-old noted that his wife picked out little Landon’s name. "It was pretty much what she wanted and what I agreed with,” he said.
