Jonathan Marchessault (lower body) scored a goal in his first game back on Tuesday against the Blackhawks.

Marchessault spent the past 10 days on the Injured Reserve list, but he picked up right where he left off. In his past two games on the active roster he has lit the lamp. One of the most coveted players in the NHL Expansion Draft is showing why he was wanted so badly by the fledgling club.

Jonathan Marchessault isn't listed on injured reserve anymore on Vegas' official website.

That indicates he has been activated and he will be back in the lineup on Tuesday night. The apparent move comes after the AHL transaction page revealed that Vadim Shipachyov had been assigned to the Chicago Wolves. The Golden Knights have not officially announced anything yet.

Look for the Vegas Golden Knights to activate Jonathan Marchessault (lower body) from the injured reserve list before Tuesday's game.

Marchessault has been practicing with Reilly Smith and William Karlsson and when he does return to the lineup, coach Gerard Gallant will have to remove someone from the winning lineup. Marchessault has a goal in four games after a 30 goal season last year for Florida

Jonathan Marchessault (lower body) practiced with the Golden Knights for the second straight day Saturday.

Jonathan Marchessault (lower body) took part in Friday's practice.

Jonathan Marchessault (lower body) has been moved to injured reserve.

Marchessault didn't participate in Saturday's practice, but coach Gerard Gallant just called it a "maintenance day" for the winger. He scored his first goal of the season in Friday's 6-3 loss to Detroit and finished with 17:59 of ice time. Marchessault is expected to miss at least one week with a lower-body injury.

Jonathan Marchessault missed practice on Saturday.

Coach Gerard Gallant said it was a maintenance day but also stated that his status was undetermined for Sunday. Marchessault has a goal in four games so do not expect a repeat of his 30 goal season of last year with Florida.

Jonathan Marchessault is eager for more scoring success in his first year with Vegas.

"I think I proved that I could play," said Marchessault, who scored 30 goals and generated 51 points in 75 games in 2016-17 with Florida. "Last year was my first full year, and I just was able to show that if I play a full year like this, I can be able to be successful in that league. That's the only thing I'm looking forward to is just show that I can do that." Coach Gerard Gallant is hopeful that Marchessault can take advantage of his opportunities again. He has been working with Reilly Smith and Vadim Shipachyov on the first line and the team's top power-play unit at training camp.

Jonathan Marchessault can become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

Marchessault was selected in the expansion draft from Florida. He netted 30 goals and registered 51 points in 75 games last season. If Marchessault takes advantage of his increased role with the Golden Knights then he could earn an extension. He will also be reunited with former Panthers coach Gerard Gallant in Vegas, which could help his chances.

Jonathan Marchessault has been picked up by Vegas in the expansion draft.

Marchessault broke out with a team-leading 30 goals for the Florida Panthers in 2016-17. He also recorded 51 points in 75 games and should play a key role in the offense of the Golden Knights next year. The Golden Knights also got Reilly Smith in exchange for a 2018 fourth-round pick so that the Panthers could shed some salary.
Jun 21 - 8:48 PM

Jonathan Marchessault was surprised that he was left unprotected for the expansion draft.

"I thought I was part of plans for the Panthers," he told radio station 91.9 Sports. The Panthers prioritized protecting four defensemen instead, so they protected less forwards. Marchessault became the first Florida player to score 30 goals since David Booth recorded 31 in 2008-09. He could be a solid addition to the Vegas Golden Knights.
Jun 20 - 10:47 AM

It is expected that Florida won't protect Jonathan Marchessault for the expansion draft.

The Panthers may have elected to protect four defensemen and leave Marchessault exposed. In our opinion that would be a huge mistake as the Vegas Golden Knights would surely pounce on selecting the 30-goal scorer.
Jun 18 - 10:28 AM

The Florida Panthers might be willing to deal Jonathan Marchessault before today's 3:00 p.m. ET trade freeze, per Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Marchessault was arguably the biggest surprise of the 2016-17 season, as he came out of nowhere to score 30 goals and 51 points in 75 games. The only reason he's available is because the Panthers are having a hard time putting together their protection list for the upcoming expansion draft. Marchessault has one year left on his contract at a very affordable cap hit of $750,000.
