Watch out NHL players: There’s a serial licker among you.

His name is Brad Marchand, and he plays for the Boston Bruins. And apparently, he has a taste for human flesh.

It’s the second time Marchand has licked an opponent during the postseason, and understandably, fellow hockey players aren’t enjoying it.

Marchand later defended himself by saying Ryan Callahan, the unfortunate man who was licked, had hit him in the face four times previously. But Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper said, via the Boston Herald, “There is absolutely no place in our game for that. I don’t get it, I don’t understand it.”

The internet seems to mostly agree. People also made plenty of jokes.

It also led to this all-of-a-sudden relevant question. What’s the difference between Marchand and DJ Khaled? Here’s how one Twitter user answered.
