Marchand celebrates return to Bruins with funny Instagram post originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Brad Marchand is returning to the Boston Bruins lineup on Thursday night, and he seems pretty excited about it.

The star left winger was suspended six games by the NHL earlier this month for an incident involving Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Tristan Jarry. It was Marchand's second suspension of the season -- he was banned three games for slew-footing Vancouver Canucks defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson in November.

NHL trade rumors: Should Bruins pay this potential Phil Kessel asking price?

Marchand will be back on the ice when the Bruins play their first ever road game against the Seattle Kraken expansion team, and he celebrated his return with the following Instagram post Thursday afternoon.

The 33-year-old forward will slot back into his first-line left wing spot next to center Patrice Bergeron on Thursday night. Jake DeBrusk will play right wing alongside them.

This matchup versus the Kraken is the beginning of a season-long six-game road trip for the Bruins.
