THE MAN YOU LOVE TO HATE

THE STATS DON’T LIE. BOSTON WINGER BRAD MARCHAND IS ONE OF THE NHL’S VERY BEST PLAYERS. AND IT’S ABOUT TIME THE HOBBY EMBRACED HIM.

It was, not to be indelicate, a classic jerk move. Having scored twice to lead the Boston Bruins to a 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs in the 2019 Hockey Hall of Fame Game, Brad Marchand accepted the Player of the Game trophy from Lanny McDonald at center ice … and then took a victory lap around Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena to celebrate the win.

“I thought they were expecting me to do a lap, so I just did a lap,” said Marchand with a smirk. “The fans seemed so excited that I got it, so I thought they would enjoy a little half-lap there. I showed it off and got lots of good cheers. It was fun.”

For him, sure. For Toronto fans, probably not so much. There might not be a building in the league where fans would be less excited about a Marchand celebration than that one. With a history of dream-crushing goals, and the occasional questionable hit, Marchand has fashioned himself into an eternal nemesis in Toronto and one of the most notorious villains in the league.
