#6. Brad Marchand – 2006

Brad Marchand has been one of the Bruins best players since being drafted in 2006 and joining the main roster full-time in 2010-11. With four 20 goal seasons in as many full years, and an 18 goal season in the lock-out shortened season, Brad Marchand has shown that he has a knack for finding the back of the net. Brad Marchand currently has 244 points in 397 career games, and is currently the leader in goals for his team once again this season as of the writing of this article.

While his goal scoring prowess is impressive, his speed, two-way ability, and ability to get under the skin of his opponents are what he’s truly known for. Widely considered one of the biggest pests in the NHL today — and maybe of all time — Brad Marchand has built a career on instigating opponents into making mistakes or drawing penalties; this also works against him as well as he is often near the top of the Bruins’ most penalized player lists consistently every season. Brad Marchand may be a pest, but he brings so much to the table that it’s hard to imagine him playing in any jersey other than a Bruins’ jersey at any point of in his career.
