BOSTON. The leadership of the overseas NHL on Monday suspended Boston Bruins hockey player Brad Marchand for three games for undermining Vancouver defender Oliver Ekman-Larsson during Sunday’s game.
This is the seventh career discipline for Marchand, and he has to pay a $ 92,000 fine.
At the end of the first period, a Boston player bumped into a puck while kicking a Swedish hockey player.
The referees did not judge the intervention in the match as illegal. In addition, the NHL players’ association rated Marchand’s foul as particularly dangerous and performed at high speed.
For Marchand, this is the second suspension for such a foul, in 2015 he received a penalty for two matches for a similar foul.
