Boston Bruins Broadcaster Jack Edwards Is Facing Accusations Of Being Intoxicated While Calling Sunday’s Game

Boston Bruins broadcaster Jack Edwards has always been a controversial figure in the National Hockey League.
Most hometown fans in Boston love his passion and dedication to the Bruins, but other fans believe he is too biased when it comes to Bruins calls.

On Sunday, however, Edwards sparked a different kind of controversy when a play during a game between the Bruins and the Carolina Hurricanes drew the attention of many viewers. During the sequence in question, Edwards expressed disbelief that Hurricanes forward Jordan Martinook had gone unpunished.

The problem was that the video replay didn’t appear to show Martinook breaking any rules, and making matters worse, Edwards was laughing maniacally and even clapping during the replay.

This resulted in numerous accusations of intoxication, some of which came from prominent hockey-related social media accounts.

Spittin Chiclets suggested that Edwards “take another bong toke.”

As per Heat Daddy, Edwards was “high as hell” on air.

Edwards’ stumbling over himself during the broadcast didn’t help him in this regard.

Of course, none of this is evidence that Edwards was genuinely intoxicated on air.
It appears far more likely that a number of personalities simply took advantage of the opportunity to poke fun at an often contentious figure in the National Hockey League.

One can only wonder….

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
