Fair or not, Brad Marchand has a reputation for playing near — and sometimes over — the line of what’s considered “clean” hockey.
And the Boston Bruins left winger apparently is well aware of this criticism.
Marchand on Thursday tweeted a photo of an Xbox One controller along with the caption, “Anyone want to play some ‘NHL?’ ” Except the button scheme on Marchand’s controller doesn’t include actions such as stick lift, saucer pass or snapshot.

Well played, Brad.
While these types of controls obviously don’t exist in EA Sports’ long-running franchise, they more or less were present in the now-extinct “NHL Hitz” series, which we assume Marchand was a big fan of.
Thankfully for Marchand and his fellow gamers, the NHL’s controversial faceoff crackdown hasn’t made its way into “NHL 18” … yet.
