NHL gives Brad Marchand edict to stop licking opponents

NHL gives Brad Marchand edict to stop licking opponents

By Greg Wyshynski - ESPN

Quote

After his second incident of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs, the NHL has issued a "cease and don't lick" edict to Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand.

Senior vice president of hockey operations Colin Campbell spoke to Marchand and Bruins general manager Don Sweeney on Saturday about Marchand's actions against Tampa Bay a night earlier.

In Game 4 between the Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night, Marchand hit forward Ryan Callahan with a low-bridge check in the second period. Callahan later shoved Marchand's face and Marchand responded by sticking out his tongue and licking Callahan.

"Well, he punched me four times in the face, so, you know, he just kept getting close," Marchand said regarding the incident.

The league says Marchand has been put on notice that his actions are unacceptable and that similar behavior in the future will be dealt with through supplemental discipline. Marchand could be fined or suspended by the NHL if he continues to lick players.

There is NO place in hockey for licking. 

(Or much of what Marchand does.)

Therapy is in order.  And some growing up - if a 29 year-old can still do that.  :unsure:

Somebody should warn his golfing partners now that his season is over.
