Oh look, Brad Marchand joined Twitter

Jan 13, 2012, 4:13 PM EDT

Boston Bruins center Tyler Seguin confirmed that teammate Brad Marchand has officially joined Twitter.



(I believe “Bergy” is Patrice Bergeron.)

Marchand has two tweets so far — one congratulating Seguin, Zdeno Chara and Tim Thomas for making the All-Star Game and one letting everybody know where they can get official Bru Tang Clan shirts. As you’d expect.

For those curious, it seems like Marchand had to go with the bland “@Bmarch63″ handle as opposed to something more creative. After minutes of exhaustive research, I learned that many of Marchand’s nicknames are no longer up for grabs on Twitter:

@NoseFace — unavailable

@Marshmont — unavaiable

@Squirrel — unavailable

@Marshy — unavailable

@Tomahawk — unavailable

@HoneyBadger — unavailable

@Rat — unavailable

Though as far as I can tell, @SedinPuncher and @ProtectiveLowBridge are still good to go.

      Totally. Mike is just trolling now. This is what passes for journalism these days?

        Just having some fun. Yeesh.

        Hockey is serious business. We don’t follow it for fun, do we?

        Hey, I know. Trolling is fun sometimes. Still means it’s trolling.

        I get the feeling that “what passes for journalism” in drewsylvania’s world is anything that confirms the Bruins are the greatest team in the history of hockey. Everything else is trolling.
