Jonathan Marchessault is the first Quebec player to win the Conn-Smythe trophy since Jean-Sébastien Giguère, and the first to do so in a winning cause since Patrick Roy in 2001.
Even though Jack Eichel received a lot of attention in the final, Marchessault still scored 13 goals along the way, including extremely important nets in pivotal moments of the Golden Knights’ run.
Rejected by his former club, Marchessault took his revenge in a delightful way by being named his club’s Stanley Cup MVP.
– He began the playoffs with just 2 points in 7 games.
