Second Star: Patrick Maroon, LW (1 G, 1 A, +2, 3 SOG, 15:03 TOI)

Maroon had a terrific game. His ice vision was on display, with good passes. Though he only recorded one hit, Maroon was active in the corners while playing on the revamped second line with Kesler and Palmieri. Maroon had a point in three straight games to start the season before suffering an MCL injury, and he struggled to get involved in the scoring when he returned, losing ice time. He was in danger of being a healthy scratch in place of Bourque (instead, Emerson Etem sat).

Maroon responded with his best game of the season, recording his first multi-point game and first goal of the season. The Ducks, who needed players to fill out their top-six entering this year, have gotten multiple strong games from players who seem to have made the leap into being ready to fill out those spots.
