Todd Marchant?

Which era was this?

Are we limiting it to Oilers forwards only?

Marchant was fast.

Here are some forwards who were faster:

Sergei Fedorov, Pavel Bure, Wes Walz, Darryl Laplante, Stacy Roest.

Marchant was timed at 13.7 seconds on a lap and his agility and acceleration was not unusual for a skater with his top-end speed; all of the above skaters put up times under that, some significantly under.
