NHL’s Colin Campbell spoke with Boston’s Brad Marchand and GM Don Sweeney today. The League put the player on notice that his actions last night are unacceptable and similar behavior in the future will be dealt with by way of supplemental discipline.

Boston Bruins Forward Brad Marchand was put on notice by the NHL League Office today after two separate incidents where he licked opponents. Yeah, that’s right. In the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Marchand licked Toronto Maple Leafs forward Leo Komarov. And on Friday night, he did the same thing to Tampa Bay Lightning Forward forward Ryan Callahan. Talk about history will be made.
Check out the 1:03 mark, or just let the whole thing play if you want to see a couple of good hits.
That definitely makes Lance Stephenson blowing into LeBron’s ear look far less intimate.
