Marchand registered an assist, two shots on goal, and a plus-2 rating during Wednesday's 6-1 drubbing of the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Looks like the five games off didn't affect Marchand much, as he's now riding a five-game point streak and has recorded six goals, 13 assists, and an astounding plus-13 rating in his last 10 contests. Despite missing 13 games between injury and disciplinary action this season, Marchand is already up to 51 points in the 39 games he has played, making him a must-start every time he and the Bruins hit the ice.

Marchand has served his five-game suspension for elbowing Devils forward Marcus Johnasson on Jan. 23.

EDGE Analysis

The Bruins won four of those games without Marchand, but obviously the B's will welcome the diminutive, point-packing forward back with open arms. He's well over a point-per-game pace with 21 goals and 29 assists through 38 contests this season, and Marchand's one of nine skaters with a shooting percentage north of 20 this campaign. It's difficult for players like that to go under the fantasy radar, but perhaps that'll be the case in his first game back Wednesday evening against Rangers.

Marchand has been suspended five games for elbowing Marcus Johansson during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

Marchand is a repeat offender, so while this punishment is unquestionably severe, it doesn't exactly come as a huge surprise. The Bruins and fantasy owners alike will sorely miss the feisty winger during his extended absence, as he's been electric this season, racking up 21 goals and 50 points in just 38 contests. Frank Vatrano will likely hold down a regular spot in the lineup while Marchand, who will be eligible to return Feb. 7 against the Rangers, is held out of action.

Marchand will have a phone hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Wednesday for elbowing Devils' forward Marcus Johansson.

EDGE Analysis

Generally speaking, a phone interview -- rather than an in-person -- would indicate that a player is facing a lighter sentence; however, Marchand will be considered a repeat offender having served a two-game ban back in April of 2017 for spearing. Additionally, the league does take past history into account regardless of whether the player is technically considered a "repeat offender". An announcement by the team should come prior to Thursday's tilt with Ottawa.

Marchand scored a goal and added a power-play assist during Tuesday's 3-2 win over New Jersey.

EDGE Analysis

This was Marchand's fifth consecutive multi-point showing for three goals and six assists total. The heater has him up to 21 tallies and 29 helpers for the year, and his 3.99 points per 60 minutes is actually higher than the 3.28 mark he posted during last season's monster campaign. While his current scoring pace is likely to cool sooner than later, he's been one of the most consistent sources of offense in the league dating back to the beginning of the 2015-16 campaign, so expect any upcoming slumps to be short lived.

Marchand notched two assists with three shots on goal and a plus-4 rating in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

That's now three straight multi-point efforts for Marchand, who's racked up a sizzling five goals and 11 assists through eight games in January with a plus-11 rating and 27 shots. He'll cool down eventually, but as long as he's scoring at this blistering pace he'll merit strong consideration in DFS lineups no matter what salary he's carrying.

Marchand recorded a goal and two assists during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

Now up to five goals and nine assists through his past seven games, Marchand has improved to an elite 3.86 points per 60 minutes for the campaign. Those numbers have him positioned among the best scorers in the league, and his plus-21 rating is also gold in formats including the category. The Nova Scotia native continues to affirm that last season's 85-point showing was no fluke.

Marchand scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

He also fired three shots on net, dished out two hits and blocked a shot, adding some extra juice to his DFS line. Marchand now has four goals and seven assists in his last six games as he continues to thrive on the Bruins' top line alongside Patrice Bergeron, and the hot streak has Marchand on pace to top last season's career high of 85 points.

Marchand posted a goal and an assist with four shots on net in a 6-5 overtime loss to the Penguins on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

It's hard to find a hotter fantasy option at the moment. In the last three games, Marchand has eight points, including six assists. That mini-run gives him 44 points in just 33 games heading into the bye week. Hopefully he doesn't cool off with a few rest days upcoming.

Marchand had a NHL career-best four assists in Saturday's 7-1 win over Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

He has six points, including five helpers, in his last two games and a remarkable 42 points in just 32 games. That's a 107-point pace, but unfortunately, Marchand missed several games due to injury. Still, he's a great fantasy option right now.
