Marchessault extended his pointless streak to five games Wednesday, but the Lightning still trumped the Maple Leafs with a 1-0 win. Marchessault caught fire starting in mid-December, compiling a seven-game points streak that included three goals and four assists. Unfortunately, he has yet to log any points in 2016 and the 25-year-old only saw more than 10 minutes of ice time once in five January contests. Marchessault is an inexperienced center whose playing time appeared to spike when various injuries thinned out Tampa Bay's forward group to finish off 2015. With most of those forwards healthy again, Marchessault's minutes have suffered as a result.
Marchessault extended his point streak to six games with two assists in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets. Sheesh -- where the heck did this come from? He has three goals and four assists in those six games after tallying three points in 13 outings. Marchessault is a short-term add to deep rosters, but don't expect this production to remain. He'll be at the splintery end of the bench once the Bolts start to get healthy.
Marchessault tallied his team's lone goal in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Canucks. Marchessault was the lone offensive bright spot for the Bolts on Tuesday, as he extended his current point streak to five games. He now has five goals and three assists through 18 games on the season, so his fantasy trade value may never be higher.
Marchessault scored his fourth goal of the season Tuesday against Toronto. Marchessault recorded a season high 17:13 of ice time Tuesday, including 3:42 with the man advantage. The 24-year-old winger has impressed since his mid-November call-up, registering four goals and an assist in 13 outings.
Marchessault will move up to Tampa Bay's top power-play unit, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Marchessault has seen significant time with the man advantage on Tampa Bay's second unit, averaging over two minutes of power-play ice time per game. Both of the 24-year-old's goals this season have come with the extra attacker, but he has failed to get on the scoresheet in the last three contests.
