Maroon had eight goals and six assists in 16 games for Edmonton. The Oilers may have found something here when they acquired Maroon from Anaheim at the trade deadline. Maroon doesn't have the talent of an elite forward but he can be a good complementary wing to one. The Oilers are loaded at forward so it's also not inconceivable that Maroon ends up on the third line next season but still he's someone to remember come draft time in September.
Maroon scored two more goals in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Canucks. Maroon has been an offensive revelation since coming over from Anaheim, totaling seven goals and six assists in 15 games with the Oilers. He now has a pair of two-goal efforts in his last four, and has definitely raised his future stock with this recent run.
Maroon scored a pair of goals in Saturday's loss to Los Angeles. That's five points in the last two games for Maroon, who is thriving on the second line with Connor McDavid and Jordan Eberle. The 27-year-old has five goals and 11 points in 12 games since arriving in Edmonton and is worth adding for the final stretch. If he sticks on the second line with two talented playmakers, there is no reason he can't continue to find twine.
Maroon scored a goal thanks to a nifty Connor McDavid feed and handed out two assists of his own Thursday in a 6-3 win over the Sharks. Life in Edmonton has been very kind indeed to Maroon, who now owns nine points in 11 games since coming over from the Ducks at the trade deadline. That's just four points fewer than he managed in 56 -- yes, 56 -- games for Anaheim. Of course, it helps that Maroon's enjoying a much bigger role with the Oilers, and if he sticks next to McDavid (after this game, why not?), there's plenty of under-the-radar fantasy value here. It'll probably be a little while until daily formats in particular take his new assignment into account, so Maroon makes for a strong play until his prices start taking his new role into account.
Maroon (illness) worked on a line with Connor McDavid and Jordan Eberle in advance of Thursday's game against the Sharks. The Oilers shuffled their lines around Thursday, with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins out with a minor concussion, so it looks like Maroon's return to the team's lineup will arrive with the added bonus of skating with a pair of skilled linemates.
