The Boston Bruins' commentator, Jack Edwards, has long been a staple in NHL broadcasting. Not long ago, he stirred up some controversy with his remarks about Pat Maroon:


Yet, in Boston, he remains an iconic voice. However, whispers are suggesting that his time with the Bruins might be drawing to a close.

With the pre-season games starting up, broadcast teams are getting ready for another NHL season, with potential changes incoming.


Devoted fans felt something different in the recent face-off between the Rangers and the Bruins.

Is Jack Edwards Being Replaced in the Bruins' Broadcasting Team?



In a surprising move, Alex Faust, known for his work with the Kings from 2017 to 2023, took Edwards' place during the last game.

"Update: Jack Edwards is not on the mic tonight for NESN. Planned absence. Alex Faust, formerly of NU and LAK broadcast booth, is on the call with Melrose's own, Andy Brickley."

Could Edwards' Successor Already be Known?



Although reports say that Edwards' absence had been prearranged, speculations suggest Faust might permanently take over Edwards' role.

"It's been 30 seconds, and I'm all in on Alex Faust as PxP for the Bruins replacing Jack Edwards."


"Alex Faust should replace Jack Edwards on Bruins telecasts."


"Hopefully the next voice of the #nhlbruins.
@alex_faust"


Boston Bruins' reporter, Jimmy Murphy, hinted on X about Faust likely becoming the permanent Bruins' commentator.

"He might become much more than a fill-in, from what I am told."


Should there be an official transition, expect prompt updates from all involved parties. And trust us to bring you the latest scoop!
