In 36 games for the Toros he scored 18 goals with 14 assists and 22 penalty minutes. Marchment was selected by Brampton in the sixth round (106th overall) in the 2011 OHL Priority Draft.

 

2011-12: Marchment skated for the Clarington Toros U18 midget team. In 26 games he scored 8 goals with 12 assists and 12 penalty minutes.

 

2012-13: Marchment played for the Wellington Dukes in the Ontario Junior Hockey League. He scored 7 goals with 13 assists and 50 penalty minutes in 49 regular season games. Wellington finished fourth in the East Division and lost to the Kingston Voyageurs in the first round of the playoffs. Marchment scored 1 goal with 1 assist and 7 penalty minutes in five playoff games. In January he committed to playing college hockey at Canisius College in 2013-14.

 

2013-14: Obtained by the Belleville Bulls from North Bay in an August trade, Marchment decided to pursue a junior career instead of playing college hockey.

Belleville missed the OHL playoffs; finishing fourth in the East Division.
