He was too small to make it to the National Hockey League, they decided. Brad Marchand has proven them wrong, helping to lead the Boston Bruins to their first Stanley Cup in thirty-nine years and scoring the winning goal for Canada in the deciding game of the 2016 World Cup final. The 5-foot-9-inch, 181-pound forward continues to surprise the skeptics. Marchand, who grew up in Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia, was named to the nhl All-Star team for the second straight year in 2018. This full-color book features personal interviews with the “Little Ball of Hate,” as well as interviews with family and coaches, and over forty photos of the star.
