The League has already asked the hockey player not to do so, but he does not stop.
May 5 in the US hosted a playoff match of the National Hockey League (NHL) between the clubs “Tampa Bay Lighting” and “Boston Bruins”. In the second period there was a player of “Boston” Brad Marchand locked with opponent Ryan Callahan, and then licked it in the face. Hockey players quickly separated – none of them judges were not removed from the ice.
The clash attracted the attention of sports media, because Marchand is not the first time resorting to licking opponents. In April, “Boston” played with “Toronto”, and the American striker licked the hockey player of the Canadian club Leo Komarov. And in the previous match between the teams he kissed Komarov on the cheek.
“I thought he wanted to get to know each other. So I became friends with him. He also wanted to get close to me. He’s cute, “Marchand explained his actions. According to ESPN, after the Komarov incident, the NHL asked the hockey player not to lick opponents, but the athlete called this information false.
Brad Marchand is considered one of the most hated players in the NHL. During games, he often resorts to “thrash-toku”: the athlete tries to use words and actions to get his opponents out of himself. In 2012, Barack Obama called thehockey player “a small clot of hatred.”
