NHL asked Marchand to stop licking players

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

It's probably not something the NHL ever thought it would have to ask of a player, but here we are.

The NHL asked Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand to stop licking or nuzzling opposing players, according to ESPN, which confirmed a Sportsnet report.

This comes after Marchand appeared to lick Toronto Maple Leafs forward Leo Komarov in Game 1 of their opening-round series.

Oddly, this isn't the first time Marchand has kissed/licked Komarov, having done so during a game earlier in the regular season.
