The hearing concerns a hit Marchand delivered on Sami Salo late in the second period of the Bruins' loss to Vancouver Saturday afternoon. During the hit, Marchand collided with Salo's knee area and caused him to land hard onto the ice. Salo did not return to the game.
Marchand was assessed a five-minute major for clipping and a game misconduct on the play.
We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
