NESN Extends Jack Edwards' Contract

Jack Edwards, the charismatic television play-by-play voice of the Boston Bruins, has agreed to a multi-year contract extension with New England Sports Network (NESN), where he has worked covering the Boston Bruins since 2005.

Jack Edwards said, "Who has more fun than us? To work with Brick, Naoko, and our NESN production crew is to live the dream. We feed off the energy and passion of Bruins fans across New England and hockey fans all over the world. We love our work and we love working together. To be part of that, to share the space with people who pour so much of their time and effort into covering this team and this sport, is the pinnacle of my career." (via NESN)

NESN management was equally pleased with the agreement, praising Edwards for his passion.

"For the past six years, Jack has been an energetic and important part of NESN's Bruins hockey coverage," said Sean McGrail, NESN President and CEO. "We are very happy to extend his contract, and look forward to his passionate presence in the broadcast booth for years to come." (via NESN)
