Brad Marchand had SHOCKING comments regarding his suspension.
Brad Marchand showed the entire NHL this year that he's not only a controversial player but he can also play hockey. In 80 games this season, he scored 39 goals and registered 46 assists for a total of 86 points.
Depsite that fact, The National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced yesterday their decision to suspend Brad Marchand for the rest of the season.
"I'm not really concerned about how anyone feels outside of the room," Marchand said. "Things happen in hockey and again the only people I care about in this world are my teammates and my family. And I think that they have different thoughts about me. So everyone's entitled to their opinion."
"It was definitely very, very selfish and undisciplined," Marchand said. "But you can't do anything about it now, and the most important thing is we're in the playoffs and regardless of who we have to play, we have to do the job. So a couple games here and we're still a very capable team on the ice. They won a huge game without me the other night and they're going to be ready to play regardless."
