Over the last couple of seasons Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand has really earned the label "elite forward".
The 30 year old has gone from agitator to point producing machine, and those are points that come from hard work not just power play opportunities.
Marchand who plays all aspects of the game, like Patrice Bergeron, is about to really prove how incredible he is on the penalty kill.
The Bruins winger leads the League with 23 shorthanded goals since beginning his NHL career in 2009-10 and is about to set a new franchise record.
Marchand is just three shy of passing Rick Middleton for the most in franchise history.
While Marchand's short handed production took a tiny dip last season, his overall point production certainly didn't as he led the Bruins with 85 points which included 34 goals and 51 assists, four of those points coming on the PK.
