Marchand Under Fire For Comments On Lucic

This morning Brad Marchand was asked about the situation and continued to support his teammate.

"Definitely worried about Brit and the kids and Looch himself, but they have all the support in the world. Anything they need, we're going to be here for them," added Marchand.

"We're obviously aware of what happened last night with Looch and the biggest thing for us is we care a lot about their family," said Marchand. "We are family in here, we're all very very close, so we're obviously very concerned and upset for them and what they're going through."

Marchand mostly talks about being concerned for Lucic while mentioning his family on the side. This has made people feel he is defending Lucic and not looking out for the people he allegedly had the incident with.

Regardless Lucic will be away from the team while any legal proceedings take place. We will have to see if Marchand clarifies his comments in the coming days.
