Marleau scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

Marleau got his night started with a secondary assist before adding a goal of his own in the second period. The two points ended his nine-game pointless skid and tied him for 24th on the all-time goals list with 257. The 39-year-old now has 11 goals and 22 points in 46 games this season. Still performing at a consistent level for Toronto, Marleau's nightly average of 0.48 points per game is his lowest mark since his rookie campaign back in 1997-98.

Marleau is projected to finish this season with 44 points.

EDGE Analysis

Through 37 games, the 39-year-old Marleau has 10 goals and 10 assists. With so many offensive weapons to choose from, Toronto hasn't needed to rely on the veteran as much as in past seasons. If he continues on his current pace, Marleau would wind up with 22 goals and 22 assists, marking his lowest point total since the 2012-13 season. That year, as a member of the Sharks, Marleau appeared in just 48 games and still managed 31 points. He's definitely lost a step but continues to benefit from a star-studded supporting cast.

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.
