Chad Finn from the Boston Globe is reporting that the Boston Bruins will soon announce that they have come to an agreement on a contract extension with TV play-by-play man Jack Edwards. Nothing has been made official yet, but Finn says a source has told him that the new deal is for four years. That would keep Edwards on NESN through the 2021-22 season.
When NESN hired Jack Edwards in September 2005 to be the Bruins play-by-play voice for its road broadcasts, the former ESPN “SportsCenter” anchor said it was his dream job.
“My hope is still to be doing this in 2025,” he said.
Thirteen years and a new contract later, Edwards’s whimsical wish is now close to reality.
Finn also reports that the Bruins TV team from last season will be in place for next season as well. Analyst Andy Brickley and reporter Alex Kraemer will be back on NESN as well.
