BHN Daily: Heartwarming Boston Bruins Moment With Brad Marchand



Boston Bruins

While Boston Bruins winger Brad Marchand didn’t have the greatest game on the ice once the puck was dropped in a Game 1 loss to the Washington Capitals, Marchand showed exactly what kind of first-class person he was prior to the game.

During pregame warm-ups at Capital One Arena on Saturday night, Marchand noticed a young girl in a Capitals jersey was struck with an errant puck while the Bruins and Capitals were getting ready prior to the opening game of the 2021 Stanley Cup playoffs. The girls was clearly upset in the aftermath, so Marchand spotted what going on, pointed it out to member of the Boston Burins staff and then signed a stick to be sent to her in the stands.

Preparing for a playoff hockey game took a backseat temporarily to making sure a little hockey fan was doing okay in the stands, and doing whatever he could to help dry the little girl’s tears. It’s a heartwarming testament to exactly the kind of quality person that Marchand is off the ice even if he’s got the well-earned reputation on the ice as a guy that sometimes steps over the edge to gain a competitive advantage.

Well done, No. 63.
