Player of the Week: Pat Maroon

Maroon put up big numbers in the Bolts' wins in Sweden over the weekend

by Jacob Lynn /

After missing the two games leading into the Bolts' trip to Sweden with an injury, Pat Maroon returned to the lineup on Friday and put up big numbers. 

Maroon picked up the primary assist on Yanni Gourde's game-winning goal in Friday's 3-2 win over the Sabres in Stockholm. Maroon freed up space behind the Buffalo net and eventually found Gourde in the slot for the goal. 

His best performance of the Global Series came in the second game when he scored twice to lead Tampa Bay to a 5-3 win. Maroon was in the right place at the right time to tie the game at one with a deflection in the first period. Then, late in the second period, he used his large presence in front of the net to force the puck over the goalline to give the Bolts a 3-1 lead.
