A handful of NHL players are such that television executives would dread them having a microphone during a live broadcast. Among these, Brad Marchand of the Boston Bruins stands out as the most unfavorable choice. Although it wasn't live, Marchand was recorded during a recent match against the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the resulting audio is quite amusing.

This incident took place earlier in the month when Boston was the host for a game against Toronto. In the highlighted moment, Jake McCabe, a defenseman for the Leafs, pushes Marchand in the chest post-whistle. The Bruins captain dramatically falls to the ice, exaggerating the push in an attempt to draw the referee's attention. This act initiates a melee, during which Charlie McAvoy of the Bruins labels McCabe as a jester and warns him of a potential suspension.

McAvoy: "Hey, what are you doing!?
You're going to get suspended for that, you idiot!
You Clown!"

Marchand rises to his feet quietly at first. But shortly afterward, he finds himself at center ice, from where he begins to skate back towards the goal while shouting at someone


"Hey! Hey! You bleep! You're gonna bleep get it! You bleep wait!"

The scene continues in a similar vein, with Marchand informing his target, likely McCabe, of his intention to confront him during his next shift on the ice. This is just another example of Marchand being his usual self.
