Montgomery Defends Brad Marchand From All Fan Bases

The Boston Bruins made a bold move by officially naming Brad Marchand as their 27th captain, coinciding with the launch of the team's 100th-anniversary jerseys. The iconic "C" now adorns Marchand's sweater, symbolizing his leadership role.

This decision received resounding support within the Bruins' organization. Marchand's leadership, both on and off the ice, his influence in the locker room, his community involvement, and his deep ties to Boston made him a natural choice for captaincy.

With his long-standing commitment to the team, Marchand is now one of the franchise's longest-serving players.

Head coach Jim Montgomery didn't hesitate to express his unwavering support for Marchand, especially to skeptics from other NHL fanbases:

"I would say that he's ours and we're happy to have him. ... We don't concern ourselves with [outside] opinion or their thoughts. We love what we have, and so do our fans."

Marchand's enduring bond with the Bruins and their fans is undeniable. His appointment as captain reflects the mutual respect and admiration between Marchand, the organization, and the city of Boston.
