Bruins winger Brad Marchand has never seen somebody he didn’t want chirp at, on or off the ice.
And finally, Marchand has an honor to his name on that front, as Marchand was named both the best and worst trash talker in the league in an NHLPA Player Poll conducted this season.
Feeling so honored right now all those years of hard work has paid off!! Want to thank everyone who has supported me in this journey to best and worst trash talker and all my work colleagues around the NHL couldnt have done it without you! @NHLBruins @NHL @NHLPA pic.twitter.com/ofAj1DNFod— Brad Marchand (@Bmarch63) March 20, 2019
Fortunately for all of us not blessed with NHL-caliber athletic abilities, Marchand’s on-ice evisceration of the opposition have been well-documented throughout the years thanks to NESN’s “Behind The B,” which has caught some of Marchand’s finest work.
Lately, though, Marchand has saved his barbs for his own teammates, as he’s repeatedly used his Twitter to chirp at both Torey Krug (a player Marchand 100 percent believes he’s taller than despite both skaters being listed at 5-foot-9) and linemate David Pastrnak this season.
