  • Marchessault scored a goal and chipped in two assists in a 4-2 win over the Ducks on Wednesday. The former Panther was in the zone in this one, ringing up eight shots on goal while skating to a plus-2. Marchessault's power-play marker with less than a minute remaining in the second period was the first of four unanswered goals by the Knights, who were all over Anaheim netminder John Gibson to the tune of 49 (!) shots. The trio of points give Marchessault 15 in 17 games this year, putting him on pace to easily surpass last season's 51-point breakout.

  • Marchessault netted his fifth goal of the season and added an assist in Thursday's win over Vancouver. It was the first goal in four games for Marchessault, who is up to 12 points in 15 contests. The 26-year-old has been impressive since arriving in Vegas and is locked into a top-six role. While more might have been expected in the goal-scoring department given his 30 tallies in Florida last season, Marchessault appears to generate something every night and should continue producing at a consistent rate. His role on the first power-play unit and willingness to fire pucks on net make him one worth owning in fantasy.

  • Marchessault's three-point performance Saturday in a 5-4 win over Ottawa gives him nine points (four goals, five assists) in his last seven games. With that, Marchessault has nine points in 10 games this season. Looks like that 30-goal, 51-point season last year wasn't a fluke after all -- this guy can create offense.

  • Marchessault dished out two helpers while firing a team-high six shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Rangers. Both of Marchessault's assists came on goals by linemate Reilly Smith. Reunited in Vegas after playing together in Florida last season, the pair of opportunistic forwards have made a living crashing the net on the second line. In addition to piling up all six of his points in his past five appearances, Marchessault has fired at least five shots on goal in three of his past four.

  • Marchessault scored once to supplement a power-play assist in Friday's 7-0 victory against the visiting Avalanche. He now has three points in two games since returning from his lower-body malady and corresponding trip to injured reserve. Looking at the score, it may surprise you that the Golden Knights only converted on one of five power-play opportunities, but it was Marchessault who delivered the primary assist on Erik Haula's man-advantage tally, and he'd previously converted a goal of his own at even strength in that second stanza. Vegas is now 8-1-0 on the season, and its players should be taken seriously both in the fantasy realm and "real life," as the chemistry is undeniable.
