Marchessault scored his 30th goal of the season during Monday's loss to Montreal. After playing just 49 games over his first three seasons in the league, Marchessault has been an absolute gem this year with 30 goals and 51 points through 72 outings. He's just one of 23 players to score 30 times this year and has been a sneaky fantasy contributor all season. Considering his lack of name value, expect Marchessault to be available late in the majority of fantasy circles again next fall.
Marchessault led the Panthers with a natural hat trick Saturday in a 7-0 pounding of the Blackhawks. Wow -- he has five goals in his last two games and 28 on the season. Yes, you read that right -- 28. Marchessault has caught lightning in a bottle this season and should be ridden hard until the end of the year. However, keeper leaguers should consider weighing the merits of moving him in the offseason -- can an undrafted 5-foot-9, 26-year-old forward repeat this scoring feat? The odds are likely stacked against Marchessault. Sell high is a critical consideration for your continued success.
Marchessault scored his 24th and 25th goals of the campaign during Thursday's win over Arizona. It's been a career year for the 26-year-old forward, as Marchessault is up to 45 points through 65 games and has been a reliable fantasy asset in deeper settings. He's admirably maintained his offensive output despite shuffling up and down the lineup. Don't overlook the capable scorer in deep leagues next year, as he's now produced at every level.
Marchessault scored twice in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Maple Leafs. Marchessault chased Frederik Andersen with a first-period tally that made it 3-1, then added another goal less than five minutes into the second. The 26-year-old center has obliterated his old career highs of seven goals and 18 points with 22 and 42, respectively, this season.
Marchesault scored a first-period goal and registered four shots on net during Monday's win over St. Louis. While the 26-year-old forward is no longer playing top-line minutes, Marchessault has continued to provide respectable offensive numbers, and he's still skating with the No. 1 power-play unit. With five goals, nine points and 34 shots over his past 14 games, Marchessault has value in deeper seasonal settings. He's also a potential contrarian flier in daily contests.
