Marchessault scored the game-tying goal Thursday in a 4-3 win over Chicago. The marker ended an eight-game drought for Marchessault, who also notched an assist on the power play in the win. Even with the goal drought, he's still managed 23 points in 30 games, and the electrifying winger should see that total increase as Vegas continues to regain the form it had last year.
Marchessault scored twice and also set up a goal Sunday, helping the Golden Knights to a 6-3 road win over the Oilers. Marchessault's power-play tally was a slick wrister from the circle that sailed past a defender and went top shelf over Cam Talbot's blocker. Widely considered Vegas' top offensive producer, the Cap-Rouge, Quebec native scored his second goal of the game 34 seconds into the third period and then three-and-a-half minutes later fashioned a primary assist to Reilly Smith to give his team a comfortable lead. Marchessault is up to 10 goals and eight assists over 21 games this season, putting him right up there with the elite crop of fantasy wingers.
Marchessault registered his eighth goal of the season in Saturday's 5-4 road loss to the Canadiens. This was one of those goals where it was difficult to tell who scored since there was a big crowd near the doorstep. However, upon closer review, it was Marchessault who deflected the puck into the cage for his 15th point in 17 games. This was an even-strength marker, but one-third of the winger's points have taken place on the power play this season.
Marchessault tallied a power-play assist Tuesday in a 4-1 road loss to Nashville. Marchessault now has 12 points in as many games, good for the team lead on The Strip. The 27-year-old is one of Vegas' most skilled offensive talents and must remain in your lineup, even if his team's collective struggles continue.
Marchessault scored on a penalty shot in overtime Sunday, allowing the Golden Knights to skate off with a 4-3 win over the visiting Senators. In a desperate attempt to thwart a breakaway in an overtime sequence, Ottawa forward Mark Stone lifted the lumber up high in the direction of Marchessault, who ended up winning the game anyway by converting his first career penalty shot. Marchessault accounted for a whopping eight of 53 shots from Vegas in this thrilling cross-conference clash, so between the heavy volume of shots and his late-game heroics, the top-line, power-play winger basically ended up as a must-have skater on Sunday evening's DFS tournament slate.
