2019 Fantasy Outlook
Marchessault took a step back last year after racking up 27 goals and 75 points in 2017-18, notching 25 goals and 59 points in 82 contests, but that was still enough to make him a valuable fantasy asset in the vast majority of formats. The 28-year-old winger will once again be locked into a top-six role and a spot on the Golden Knights' first power-play unit in 2019-20, and shouldn't have any trouble eclipsing the 25-goal mark while threatening the 60-point threshold for a third consecutive campaign. Marchessault's consistency and stable role will make him a fine addition to any virtual roster this season. Read Past Outlooks

After spending time with the Blue Jackets, Lightning and Panthers, Marchessault appears to have found a home in Vegas. The undrafted winger was a revelation in his first season with the Golden Knights after being left unprotected by the Panthers in the expansion draft. The speedy forward set a career high with 75 points (27 goals) in 77 regular-season games and played a critical role in Vegas reaching the Stanley Cup Final. Marchessault became a staple in the top six and on the power play, earning himself a six-year, $30 million contract in the process. While it's hard to see him improving significantly on his 2017-18 totals, the 27-year-old is in the prime of his career and has put up back-to-back 25-plus goal seasons, making another productive campaign seem likely.
An undersized and undrafted late bloomer, Marchessault exploded for a 30-goal, 51-point campaign in 2016-17 (albeit with a minus-21 rating), making him a rare bright spot for a Panthers club that struggled mightily. Now the question is whether that was a flash in the pan or a sign of bigger things to come. Claimed in the expansion draft, the 26-year-old will be one of the focal points of the Knights’ offense, and he may have to play a little center after being used sparingly down the middle by Florida. Only eight of Marchessault’s goals came on the power play, which is a sign that he can be highly effective at even strength, but he also rode a sky-high 15.5 shooting percentage, and that’s likely to regress some. Without any elite playmakers alongside him, it'll be very difficult for Marchessault to put on an offensive show, but last year's scoring didn't just come out of nowhere -- he was an All-Star and a nearly point-per-game performer in the AHL.
AHL sniper (45 goals and 131 points over the last two seasons) Audy-Marchessault likely doesn't have the size or physical game to translate his talent to the NHL, but he'll get at least another couple of chances to prove his doubters wrong.
A waterbug that made enough noise as an AHL rookie after going undrafted out of junior to get a look from the Blue Jackets. He's at least a year or two away from getting a look at the NHL level though, if he ever does.
