Bruins winger Brad Marchand is an imposing (and productive) presence on the ice. As of Feb. 25, he’s only one aim shy of cracking 300, and he notched two assists in the course of the Bruins’ 7-3 thrashing of the Philadelphia Flyers on the 2021 Honda NHL Outdoor Games at Lake Tahoe on Feb. 21. Off the ice, although, he’s a only a common man who tears up at father-daughter scenes in films and may’t cease leaving his stuff all around the home (a lot to his spouse’s annoyance). We lately caught up with him just about to be taught extra about his life at residence and along with his teammates. He shared a couple of selection tales from the locker room, just like the distinctive means David Pastrnak celebrates.

“He’s infamous for placing individuals on his shoulders,” Marchand tells Males’s Journal, “once we’re celebrating any sort of occasion.”

Marchand and his brother had been ecstatic, they usually had the piece of paper framed. Years glided by, then in the future Marchand requested his dad if these autographs had been legit.
