Forward showing he's more than agitator playing on top line


OTTAWA - This was a perfect opportunity for Brad Marchand to reinvent himself into the player he wants to be, the player he wants the hockey world to know him as.

He's made his mark with the Boston Bruins as an agitator, and in a way, no matter what he does with Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey 2016, there are many people who will always see him that way.

But you don't make Team Canada by simply being an agitator. You need to be able to play.

Through two pretournament games, including a 5-2 win against Team USA on Saturday, Marchand has proven he can do that.

Team Canada coach Mike Babcock decided to scratch captain Sidney Crosby in large part because his line with Patrice Bergeron and Marchand played so well in a 4-2 loss to Team USA on Friday that Babcock didn't feel the need to see it anymore.
