Marcellus personifies the upward trajectory of the program in the landscape of college hockey. He is a player who immediately should be on the draft radar for his dazzling finesse and levels of production.

As a freshman, the Greely, Ontario native has 30 points (14 goals, 16 assists). That is good for fourth on the team behind Graf, Quillan, and Lipkin.

The former USHL Lincoln Stars captain entered a Bobcats lineup that lost six forwards from its championship team last season and immediately made an impact.

With a late-round draft pick, Marcellus could be a player that blossoms the way Graf has under the guise of the QU coaching staff. The way No. 20 in gold has played as a first-year may surpass Graf's elite play by the time he is a junior.
