Something Off With Jack Edwards in His Return to Play By Play

Jack Edwards missed the first Bruins pre-season game, which had fans wondering if his replacement Alex Faust would be a long-term replacement for the Bruins announcing booth. Edwards was able to make his return for last night's pre-season game, however, fans weren't happy with his performance.


Fans were quick to criticize Edwards' ability to call the play. Some speculated that there could be something wrong with his health, explaining his absence from the first game.

Seriously what's going on with Jack Edwards? I almost feel bad that Bruins fans are going to have to listen to this all year. He's either silent or seconds behind and barely saying anything. Yikes.

Edwards has a long history of calling the play-by-play with the Bruins and is famous for his charismatic enthusiasm for the Bruins. However, this enthusiasm has also come with controversy.

Famously, Edwards has been criticized in the past for comments that encourage or cheer on opposing players getting injured.
