Jonathan Marchessault had a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Marchessault recorded the primary assist on William Karlsson's power play goal in the first period to give Vegas a 1-0 lead. He then scored a goal of his own (it was a ridiculous shot from a crazy angle) with just under eight minutes remaining in the game to cut his team's deficit to 5-4. Marchessault finished the night with a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal and one hit in 16:11 of ice time. The 27-year-old has put up some impressive totals throughout the season. He now has 19 goals and 52 points in 50 games in 2017-18.
Feb 6 - 10:41 PM

Jonathan Marchessault scored a goal with an assist over 15:28 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-2 victory at Calgary.

Marchessault is showing why he has so highly coveted during the NHL Expansion Draft. After a bit of a slow period in mid-December he has turned it up again, posting eight goals with 14 assists and a plus-17 rating over the past 18 outings dating back to Dec. 14. He hasn't had back-to-back games without a point since Dec. 5-8.

Jonathan Marchessault contributed two assists in Tuesday's 6-3 victory versus Columbus.

Marchessault's NHL career began in the Blue Jackets organization and he skated in two games with the team back in 2012-13. He has turned into a different player since then and has become a key offensive talent for the Golden Knights. Marchessault has 17 goals and 46 points in 44 contests. He also has one goal and four helpers during a four-game point streak.
Jan 24 - 11:34 AM

Jonathan Marchessault fired 10 shots on goal in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the Nashville Predators.

The Golden Knights managed to take 43 shots on Nashville's Juuse Saros, but none of those ended up in the back of the net. This was just the second time in his last 12 games that Marchessault didn't manage to collect at least one point in a game. He has 16 goals and an impressive 41 points in 40 games this season.

Jonathan Marchessault was a notable snub for the NHL All-Star Game along with teammate William Karlsson.

Vegas will be represented by James Neal and Marc-Andre Fleury at the event later this month in Tampa Bay. Marchessault leads the Golden Knights with 40 points in 38 games, while Karlsson ranks fifth among all players with 22 goals and is second on the team with 36 points.
Jan 11 - 11:43 AM

Jonathan Marchessault received a hefty raise from the Golden Knights on Wednesday with a six-year, $30 million contract extension.

Marchessault would have been eligible for unrestricted free agency in the summer after his two-year deal that pays him $750,000 this season expired. "He fits our identity," GM George McPhee said. "He works very hard. He's very, very competitive, lots of second and third and fourth effort. He works hard at both ends of the rink, and he’s generating offense." Marchessault, who was chosen from Florida in the expansion draft, ranks first on Vegas in scoring with 37 points (15 goals, 22 assists) through 35 games this season.
Jan 4 - 11:33 AM

Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports has confirmed that forward Jonathan Marchessault has signed a new six-year deal worth $30 million.

The 27-year-old forward currently leads the Golden Knights in points with 37 in 35 games. It's incredible to think that three teams had Marchessault before Vegas. Columbus decided to trade him for Dana Tyrell and Matt Taormina, Tampa Bay didn't want to pay him $750,000 and Florida let him go to Vegas in the expansion draft. Marchessault ends up getting the last laugh and is a key piece that has the Golden Knights first in the Western Conference at the half way point of the season.
Jan 3 - 3:18 PM

Jonathan Marchessault finished with an assist and plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win at Anaheim to extend his point streak to four games.

Marchessault was one of the most coveted players in the NHL Expansion Draft and he is starting to show why.

After a big 51-point season with the Florida Panthers in 2016-17, he is actually on pace to do even better in his first year with Vegas.

Jonathan Marchessault potted a goal and two assists in Vegas' 5-2 victory over Florida on Sunday.

Marchessault had just one point in his previous five games, but he had an early Christmas gift for his former team that left him unprotected at the expansion draft.
