Marchessault scored twice in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Sabres. Marchessault received a nice pass from William Karlsson in the first period and beat Carter Hutton backdoor to open scoring. He added insurance on an empty net with 13 second left in the game. Marchessault now has four goals -- one on the power play -- and four assists through seven games.
Marchessault dished out two helpers in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Penguins. Vegas is off to a 1-4-0 start, but Marchessault isn't to blame for those struggles, as he has six points through five games. Look for him to hover around a point-per-game pace once again after finishing with 75 points in 77 appearances during the Golden Knights' inaugural season.
Marchessault recorded a goal, an assist and five shots on net in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Sabres. Marchessault had the secondary helper on Erik Haula's second-period score, and he beat Carter Hutton in the third period to cut the Sabres' lead to two. Marchessault now has two goals and two helpers through three games as he looks to follow up last season's monstrous 75-point campaign.
Marchessault provided a game-tying assist in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win over the Wild. Marchessault connected with newcomer Max Pacioretty for his second point of the young season and Patches' first goal in armor. It's safe to say that the Golden Knights wouldn't have been able to realize the fairy-tale narrative of making it to the Stanley Cup Finals without the help of Marchessault. He posted ridiculous regular-season numbers, including 75 points (16 on the power play) and a plus-36 rating to complement 268 shots, and the Quebec native exceeded a point per game in the postseason. He's a bona fide No. 1 fantasy winger.
Marchessault struck for two goals and two assists Thursday in a road win over Los Angeles' split-squad team. Sure, it was an intrasquad game for L.A., but Marchessault was going against the Kings' better players at the Staples Center, making this performance even more impressive. Given that all four points came with Jonathan Quick in the net, this was a strong showing that suggests he'll be ready to pick up where he left off last year once the games count.
