3. Is Jonathan Marchessault Re-Signed Yet?

Sadly, there's nothing on the "Vegas Golden Knights re-sign Jonathan Marchessault" front lately. The winger has had a decent series against the Dallas Stars, chipping in two goals and two assists. With his playoff performance and his 42-goal season in 2023-2024, Golden Knights fans would love a reunion with the beloved "Misfit."

But Friday might be the last time that Golden Knights fans see No. 81 in the gold jersey. He's 33 years old and is a bit undersized on Vegas, which makes him prime bait for not coming back. However, there's still value to his game, for he still has an excellent shot and is valuable on the power play. His special teams presence has made the beleaguered unit much better, for he uses his offensive prowess to his advantage.

For many Golden Knights fans, they might not be ready to see one of the most beloved "Misfits" go. He's produced countless clutch memories, both in the regular season and in the playoffs. Vegas Golden Knights hockey was made in part to Marchessault's contributions, and it'll be tough seeing the former Conn Smythe winner go anywhere else.

If Friday is indeed the last time Jonathan Marchessault is with the Vegas Golden Knights, he'll be remembered for his bubbly personality and being an all-around good guy. The former Conn Smythe winner should be honored for being in Vegas since "Day F*****n One," getting a memorable ceremony upon his return.
