#2 Mason Marchment

Born: Uxbridge, Ontario.
Age: 27
Position: Wing
Expiring Contract: $800,000 AAV

Mason Marchment played four games with the Toronto Maple Leafs before being traded to the Florida Panthers for Denis Malgin in February 2020.  His dad, Bryan Marchment, also played briefly for the Toronto Maple Leafs suiting up for 75 games during the 2003-04 season.

After only earning approximately $1,873,296 up tp this point in his NHL career, Mason Marchment will probably sign with the team willing to pay him the most.  He should earn a raise from his $800k expiring contract, but how much?

Marchment had a breakout season this year with 18 goals and 47 points in 54 games.  This 54 game single season achievement is a relatively small sample size though and his stats could have been padded by playing on an offensive juggernaut like the Panthers.

There may be a team out there willing to overpay him, but if the market on him is affordable, there is a reasonable chance he could return to the Toronto Maple Leafs.  He seemed to leave on good terms and spent parts of five seasons playing in Toronto with the Marlies.

Marchment could end up being the missing piece to the Toronto Maple Leafs second line or replace Ilya Mikheyev’s spot in the line-up if Mikheyev signs elsewhere.

Bryan Marchment is currently a scout and development coach with the San Jose Sharks, so there’s a good chance Mason Marchment could end up in San Jose as well.
