Jonathan Marchessault wins the Conn-Smythe Trophy

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.

This makes him the first Quebec skater since Claude Lemieux in 1995 to do so, and the twelfth Quebecer in history.

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.

He finished with 13 goals and 12 assists, for a total of 25 points, in 22 games. He scored 21 points in 20 games during the 2018 playoffs.

Remember that the Panthers had paid the Golden Knights to select Reilly Smith in the expansion draft, in addition to losing unprotected Jonathan Marchessault.

The Panthers!

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.
