Boston Bruins prospect Jackson Edward snaps AGAIN

Published April 7, 2024 at 11:46

In the 7th round of the 2022 NHL Draft, the Boston Bruins selected Jackson Edward of the London Knights. The 6'2 and nearly 200 pound defender is an intimidating figure on the ice, but it's not his play with the puck that often gets him noticed. More often than not it's his physical play which grabs the attention of fans.

Attached with his physical play on the ice, Edward also possesses one scary feature that not everyone has. So what sets Edward apart? Well, unfortunately for opponents Edward has one of the shortest fuses of any player in recent memory.

This season alone Edward has been suspended a hand full of time and on Friday his temper once again was on full display. After pushing an opponent into his own goalie, Edward felt it was his responsibility to teach him a lesson for his actions. Despite being held off by officials, Edward was able to unload 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   

Somehow on the play Edward was NOT ejected and Markas Samenas was also penalized. On the play Edward received an incredibly rare triple minor for roughing while Samenas received a double minor.

It's hard to understand how Samenas received 4 minutes on the play, but he's lucky he made it out of this exchange unscathed. This is also likely not the last time we saw Edward lose his temper this playoff season.
