Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brad Marchand
Brad Marchand was born on May 11, 1988 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Though seen as small by NHL standards at only 5' 9" his impressive offensive totals in the QMJHL drew the attention of the Boston Bruins who selected him 71st overall at the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Marchand was twice a member of the Canadian teams at the World Junior Championship (2007 and 2008) helping bring home gold both times.

After spending his first professional season with the Providence Bruins of the AHL, Marchand got his first taste of the NHL on October 21, 2009. In all he would appear in 20 games for Boston during the 2009-10 season.

During the 2010-11 season, the gritty forward would establish himself as a solid two-way player for the Bruins. He would also emerge as a fan favorite and played a key role in the Bruins' Stanley Cup-run. En route to the club's first championship since 1972, Marchand contributed several key goals, and his never-quit style of play made him one of the most difficult Bruins to play against.

In 2011-13, Marchand would establish new career-bests in virtually every category. He notched 28 goals and 27 assists for 55 points and also posted 55 minutes in penalties. In addition, his +31 rating ranked in the top five in all of the NHL.

During the 2015-16 season, Marchand would reach the 30-goal mark for the first time in his career. He would finish the season with 37 and his 61 points was also a career-high.

Marchand was chosen to represent Canada at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey where he would find chemistry on a line with Sidney Crosby. With four goals and three assists, he was the tournament's top goal-scorer, named to the all-star team and helped his homeland to the title.
