Charles Bradley Marsh (born March 31, 1958) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player who played as a defenceman in the National Hockey League (NHL). Marsh played for the Atlanta Flames, Calgary Flames, Philadelphia Flyers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings and Ottawa Senators over a 15 year NHL career. He played for the Prince of Wales Conference in the 1993 NHL All-Star Game, scoring one goal.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Marsh played junior hockey with the London Knights, who later retired his sweater number. Originally selected by the Atlanta Flames in the 1978 NHL Entry Draft, Marsh began his pro career in Atlanta and followed the Flames' organization when they relocated to Calgary in 1980. He remained with the Flames until he was traded to Philadelphia for Mel Bridgman in November 1981.

With the Flyers, Marsh made two appearances in the Stanley Cup finals in 1985 and 1987. He later played with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, and Ottawa Senators. With Ottawa, Marsh made his only NHL All-Star appearance in 1993, scoring a goal for the victorious Wales Conference.

He scored 23 goals and added 175 assists in 1086 NHL games, which is a record for fewest goals scored by a player who played at least 1000 games.[2]

Marsh was one of the last NHL players not to wear a helmet during league play.

Post-retirement[edit]

After his retirement, he moved into the Senators' front office as Director of Team and Business Development and remained there for several years. He also coached various levels of minor hockey over the years.[3]

In the late 1990s, Marsh opened a sports bar in the Senators' arena known as Marshy's.

Marsh was announced as the head coach of the Canadian Women's Hockey League's Ottawa franchise on August 31, 2009.[4] He was later hired as an assistant coach for Queen's University's hockey team, the Gaels, on August 26, 2011.[5]

In 2007, Marsh was inducted into the London (Ontario) Sports Hall of Fame.

In late 2013, Marsh joined HockeyBuzz.com as one of the website's featured bloggers, writing stories that mainly touch on his playing days and providing insight to league issues and happenings.
