News: Marchand notched a goal and an assist in 19:17 worth of ice time in Tuesday's preseason loss to the Islanders. Impact: Meanwhile, Marchand (who averaged less than half a minute of power play time in 2013-14) saw 3:21 worth of man-advantage action Tuesday, a trend that could potentially extend into the regular season, ESPN.com reports. "It's certainly a possibility," coach Claude Julien said with regard to Marchand seeing added power play duty in 2014-15. "He's a better player this year already than he was all of last year." On heels of a season in which he recorded 25 goals and 53 points in 82 games, while seeing limited power play ice time, any sort of uptick on that front would bode well for the winger's chances of seeing increased production this year.(RotoWire, )

News: Marchand, who focused on his conditioning during the offseason, has looked sharp early on in training camp, the Boston Herald reports. Impact: Marchand notes, "I just feel like I'm quicker and I can go to areas a little faster. ... I feel like I can control the puck a little easier than I could last year. I'm not getting knocked off (the puck). Those were a couple of big issues I had." For his part, GM Peter Chiarelli has been impressed by what he's seen from the feisty winger thus far, indicating that Marchand has "been real good. For a guy that scored 20-plus goals last year and we're telling him it's a bad year — I think [if] he keeps that up, he's going to have a good year." While playing all 82 games last season, Marchand recorded 25 goals and 53 points for the Bruins -- numbers he could easily top this season, health permitting, while presumably skating on a line with center Patrice Bergeron and restricted free agent Reilly Smith (once he rejoins the team).(RotoWire, )
