Marleau scored the game-winning goal Wednesday in a 5-3 victory over San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

And with that snipe, Marleau became the 25th player in league history to score against each of the 31 NHL teams. In this case, it came against his former squad. Marleau one-timed a pass from Andreas Johnsson from the bottom of the right face-off circle. After a slow start to the season, Patty has nine points (four goals, five assists) in 13 games in November.

Marleau is on pace to match his point total from a season ago.

EDGE Analysis

The 39-year-old veteran has seven helpers in his last 10 games, and at the quarter mark of the season is averaging the same amount of points per game he did a season ago (0.57), putting him on pace to match his 2017-18 mark of 47 points. It's worth noting that Marleau is shooting less this season, averaging 2.05 shots per game which is his lowest per-game shot output since 2001-02. With so many goal scorers already on the roster, Toronto doesn't need Marleau to fill the net in 2018-19 and instead would prefer that he simply continue setting the table for his teammates.

Marleau scored the Leafs' only goal in a 2-1 loss to Dallas on Thursday night.

EDGE Analysis

Marleau has not been getting goals this season -- he's been playing with shoot-first Auston Mathews, so it's not really a surprise. He may be 39, but he can still skate with the speedy young Leafs. Marleau was moved onto the team's first power-play for Thursday and was parked in front of the net. It might be just what he needs to get on a roll.

Marleau is mired in a five-game pointless streak.

EDGE Analysis

The Maple Leafs will need the veteran Marleau to start playing assertively since third-year stud Auston Matthews (shoulder) -- with whom he's occasionally played with at even strength -- will miss at least four weeks of action. Marleau has only registered 23 shots on goal through 12 games, which at least partially tells the story of why he's only scored once over that span. However, the silver lining is that the 39-year-old has averaged about 19 and a half minutes of ice time over the last two contests. As long as he continues to see playing time at or near season-high levels, Marleau should start to bust out of his slump.

Marleau posted two assists in Sunday's 7-6 overtime win versus Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Both happened to be primary helpers, with one coming on the game-winning marker in overtime. The 39-year-old veteran has yet to score this season but does have four assists in three games. Playing a top-six role in potentially the league's most dynamic offense, Marleau could wind up doing wonders for fantasy owners in 2018-19.

Marleau has been working on the top line with Tyler Ennis and Auston Matthews in the preseason, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fourth-year winger William Nylander remains at an impasse with the Maple Leafs when it comes to contract negotiations, otherwise, the top line might have a different look. Marleau scored 27 goals and 20 assists in his debut campaign with the Buds in 2017-18. Formerly with the Sharks, the 39-year-old hasn't missed a single game in 10 seasons, which is certain to attract conservative fantasy owners in all kinds of drafts.

Marleau lit the lamp twice in a 7-4 Game 7 loss to the Bruins on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Marleau did his best to try and help the Maple Leafs to victory, but his two tallies weren't enough. In his first season away from San Jose, the 38-year-old forward showed that he still had a little something left in his legs. He scored 27 goals for the second straight season, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him make another attempt to win that first Cup next season.

Marleau notched an assist and three shots on goal in 15:39 of ice time during Game 4 against the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

Marleau owns three points in the last two contests, but it didn't prevent the Maple Leafs from falling behind 3-1 in the series with a 3-1 loss to the Bruins on Thursday. He will attempt to add to his playoff total as Toronto travels to Boston for Game 5 with hopes of stealing the contest and returning home with a chance to force a Game 7.

Marleau scored two goals in Monday's 4-2 win over the Bruins in Game 3.

EDGE Analysis

Both his shots found the back of the net, while he also added four hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating. Marleau's second goal of the night was the 70th playoff tally of his career, putting him in a tie with Steve Yzerman for 16th all-time. The veteran may need to stay hot if the Leafs are going to even the series at 2-2 on Thursday.

Marleau netted the Leafs' only goal in a 3-1 loss to the Jets on Saturday night.

EDGE Analysis

Marleau has 26 goals in 79 games this season. He's been a consistent 26-goal, 46-point player in each of the last three seasons. And it's fair to think Marleau can replicate that next season, too.
