The longtime Boston Bruins' play-by-play caller Jack Edwards made a heartfelt speech last night in the final broadcast of his career.

After 19 years calling the Bruins' game, Edwards officially worked on the last game of his career on Thursday night's game 6 between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins.
Edwards announced that he was dealing with health issues over the past years and it has affected his speaking abilities. Listening to Bruins' games, it's evident that it's taking a toll on his job.
In the best way that he could, he made a heartfelt speech after the Bruins' tough 2-1 loss.
Listen to what he said here:
Edwards isn't liked by everyone in the hockey community, but he remains one of the most iconic voices in the sport.
Until the end, he caused controversies. A few days ago, he called a referee working on the Leafs Vs. Bruins game a "coward". This generated a lot of backlash on social media, including this post from former referee Tim Peel:
"I think Jack Edwards may be having some health issues and I sympathize with that. But calling Referee #40 Steve Kozari a coward is despicable. Kozari was carried off on a stretcher 3 weeks ago in Pittsburg in a collision with Hayden Fleury of #GoBolts Last year he fat shamed Pat Maroon. Very sad Jack!"

We wish him the best going into retirement.
