Once more, Boston Bruins prospect Jackson Edward breaks through

Published April 7, 2024 at 7:36 PM

Jackson Edward, chosen by the Boston Bruins in the 7th round of the 2022 NHL Draft from the London Knights, stands tall at 6'2 and weighs close to 200 pounds. While his prowess with the puck is notable, it's his physical style of play that often steals the spotlight among fans.

Coupled with his aggressive style of play, Edward also harbors a particularly intimidating trait that sets him apart. So, what distinguishes Edward? Regrettably for adversaries, Edward boasts one of the shortest tempers witnessed in recent history.

Just this season, Edward has faced several suspensions, and on Friday, his volatile temper resurfaced. Following an incident where he shoved an opponent into his own goalie, Edward felt compelled to mete out retribution. Despite efforts by officials to restrain him, Edward managed to land multiple punches.

Jackson Edward might just be the most unhinged prospect I've watched in recent memory and for good reason. Edward, No. 92 in white, drops a guy into his own goalie, mounts him, drops the gloves and starts swinging while pulled off by two refs. Would hate to play him. #NHLBruins   

Surprisingly, Edward managed to avoid being ejected from the game, while Markas Samenas was also penalized. Edward was handed an extremely unusual triple minor penalty for roughing, whereas Samenas received a double minor.

It's puzzling how Samenas ended up with a 4-minute penalty, but he's fortunate to have emerged from the altercation without injury. Moreover, it's probable that we'll witness Edward's temper flare up again during this playoff season.
