BREAKING: Brad Marchand's Take on the Bruins' Latest Offseason Acquisitions

Published September 8, 2023 at 0:57
The Boston Bruins have undergone some changes this offseason, bidding farewell to familiar faces like Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci, along with recent additions Taylor Hall and Nick Foligno.

Brad Marchand and Charlie Coyle took a moment during the first captains' practice of the 2023-24 season to reflect on the nature of the NHL, where trades and retirements are part of the game, affecting every team, including the Bruins.

But it's not just about saying goodbye; the Bruins have also welcomed new players into the fold, including Milan Lucic, James van Riemsdyk, and Kevin Shattenkirk.

Marchand had positive words about these additions, highlighting their leadership and character.

"The Bruins take pride in bringing in good people, and they've done it again this year," Marchand said from the dressing room at Warrior Ice Arena.

With Bergeron's retirement, there's a leadership void, but Marchand believes it will be a collective effort to fill it. While the team hasn't named a captain yet, Marchand and the veteran newcomers are ready to provide guidance.

"When you have guys with a lot of experience, they don't get rattled by small things. They stay steady and level-headed," Marchand noted.

As training camp approaches on September 20, the Bruins are gearing up for the season. With two more captains' practices and preseason games ahead, the team is ready to tackle new challenges when the regular season begins on October 11 against the Chicago Blackhawks at TD Garden.
