Marchand has notched two goals and four points in six games to date while representing Canada at the IIHF World Hockey Championship. Though Marchand left last Monday's win over Belarus with a reported lower-body injury, the feisty forward did not ending up missing any action beyond that. Next up for 6-0 Team Canada is Tuesday's game against Finland, which will wrap up both team's round-robin slate in the tournament.
Marchand -- who is representing Canada at the World Championships -- left Monday's win over Belarus with a reported lower-body injury, CSN New England reports. TSN's Darren Dreger relays that Marchand "aggravated a per-tournament injury," but on the plus side, Team Canada's staff expects the feisty winger to be fine. As a result, consider Marchand day-to-day.
Marchand completed the 2015-16 season with a team-high 37 goals and 61 points to go along with a team-best plus-21 rating in 77 games. While the Bruins' season ended in disappointing fashion, the tireless Marchand is one player who gave the team its money's worth this year. The pesky winger, who turns 28 in May, has one year left on his current deal with the Bruins and we suspect that keeping him around for the long haul is something that the team's brass will look into this offseason.
Marchand produced a goal and an assist Thursday night in a 5-2 win over Detroit. Marchand's offensive contributions have been spotty, with the 27-year-old denting the scoresheet every other game since March. 26, a span of six outings. Still, Marchand proved to be clutch Thursday as the Bruins desperately needed this win to stay alive in the playoff race. Use him as much as you can in fantasy land.
Marchand picked up a goal and an assist in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Blackhawks. He also added a plus-2 rating and five hits. The 27-year-old continued his stellar season Sunday and is now up to 58 points -- a new career high. Marchand has been a reliable fantasy producer in all formats, and nothing about that should change as the season comes to a close.
