Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand has quite the problematic reputation growing within league circles, and his antics are not doing him any good.
Marchand’s latest incident occurred last Friday during their playoff series against the Tampa Bay Lightning, one that the Bruins eventually lost, when he got into a tussle with Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Ryan Callahan and proceeded to lick Callahan’s face.
Marchand is among the leagues most penalized players, who has been at the receiving end of numerous suspensions and multiple fines.
Following his incident with Callahan, the NHL put Marchand on notice stating that his actions were “unacceptable and similar behavior in the future will be dealt with by way of supplemental discipline.”
Marchand finally seems to be getting the message.
“I need to cut that (expletive) out,” Marchand said, according to Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic.
Only time will tell, but Marchand may finally realized that he can serve his team better by cutting out the antics.
