Will Brad Marchand be in trouble for collision with Anthony Duclair?

Will Brad Marchand be in trouble for collision with Anthony Duclair?

Brad Marchand basically plays permanently under a microscope at this point, so any sort of hit or collision involving him, especially one that results in an injury, is going to get attention.

That includes his collision with Anthony Duclair in the first period of Saturday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks. Marchand and Duclair both turned toward the same spot on the ice behind the play and ran into each other.

Marchand jumped up just before the collision and caught Duclair in the face with his hands and wound up being called for interference. Duclair's leg appeared to stick in the ice when contact was made and he needed to be helped off the ice with what looked like a knee injury.

For just about any other player, it would be easy to dismiss this as a freak collision with an unfortunate result, but Marchand's history and reputation means the debate over whether there was anything nefarious here has already begun.
