NHL Makes It's Ruling On Marchand Hit.

Published December 10, 2017 at 11:24

Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand was the talk of the NHL once again last night, unfortunately it wasn't in regards to his offensive ability. 

With the Bruins up 1-0 in the third period last night, Marchand took a five minute penalty for interference after a hit that was deemed questionable, arguably targeting Tavares' head on the hit. 

While many NHL reporters believed Marchand would receive a suspension for the hit, however it looks like the NHL doesn't feel it's necessary. 

Luckily for Bruins fans, Marchand will not have a hearing for his hit on Tavares as Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. 

With Marchand already being labeled a repeat offender, it's actually surprising that the B's forward won't have any type of hearing.

After the game, Tavares was asked about if he felt the hit was suspension worthy. 

"I'm fine," Tavares said after the game, according to Staple. "I think the video speaks for itself on that one. Don't have much else to say."

Did the NHL make the right call?
