Marchessault was one of the most coveted players in the NHL Expansion Draft and he is starting to show why. He has two goals with seven points and a plus-6 rating during his modest four-game point streak. After a big 51-point season with the Florida Panthers in 2016-17, he is actually on pace to do even better in his first year with Vegas. Marchessault is producing at a point-per-game clip, 33-points in 32 games, (12-21).
I have to admit, I was wrong about Marchessault. I thought this guy was going to slow down after last season. The fantasy owners that took the risk are definitely seeing the rewards now.
To be honest, I still can’t believe what this Vegas team is doing…. they are now being considered Stanley Cup contenders!
