Ungaraging: Brad Marchand

Brad Marchand is more than a dynamite, sometimes controversial winger. The Nova Scotia native is a home builder, family man, and sports car enthusiast too.

In the second installment of our Ungaraging videos, Marchand opens up about his love for hockey, and how the garage window in his family home bore the brunt of his shooting practice.

Marchand also explains the way growing up in a large family shapes the vehemently competitive way he plays the game. Including the punishing training games he’d make up with his brothers, like “Slapshot Sting”.

A car fan at heart, Brad’s garage gives a unique and endearing insight into the man behind one of hockey’s most polarizing highlight reels.

Watch the three videos below to learn more about Brad Marchand and his garage.

Ungaraging: Explained

Ungaraging is a new series from autoTRADER.ca, that delves into the homes, and of course, garages, of prominent Canadians. The garage is a core part of most Canadian’s upbringing, and for many our first hockey rink, sports arena, or workshop.

“With Ungaraging we wanted to create something original that not only offers a glimpse into the vehicles players drive, but also offers a behind-the-scenes look at the lives and memories that come along with growing up in and around their garage – something quintessentially Canadian,” says Kevin Cheng, Director of SEO and Content at autoTRADER.ca. “While cars and unique vehicles play a strong role in our series, these stories speak even more broadly to what it means to grow up chasing a dream – something we can all relate to.”
