The bad news continues for the National Hockey League's most notorious agitator.
Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand has been sidelined with his second injury of the regular season already and now we have confirmation from his head coach that he will be missing at least a few more games.
On Tuesday coach Bruce Cassidy announced that Marchand as well as 21-year-old forward Anders Bjork would be sidelined for both Wednesday's game against the Anaheim Ducks and Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.
It sounds like the absence could very well extend past that point however as Cassidy also added that the team would re-evaluate both players on Friday before making any more statements regarding either man's health.
Combined Marchand and Bjork account for 24 points this season, a tough break for the Bruins to lose them both for the duration of a tough California road trip.
