Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley (aka Brick), since the 2007-2008 NHL Hockey Season, have been the play-by-play Boston Bruins commentary Duo for New England Sports Network (NESN). Both are New Hampshire natives and were affiliated with the University of New Hampshire (UNH).

Jack Edwards

These two are very passionate about the Bruins; Jack has been known for getting overly emotional during a game. Here is definite proof that Jack is truly an emotional person. This video is eight minutes long, but in my opinion, it gets you pumped up to see live hockey again. There are even clips from Jack himself explaining that moment of the clips.

Jack has gotten himself in trouble on social media from the comments he makes during games about certain players. For instance, in 2013, in a game between Boston and Pittsburgh, Jack compares Matt Cooke to Sirhan Sirhan, the man who shot and killed Robert Kennedy. Cooke had ended the career of the Marc Savard with a hard hit several years earlier. Jack later apologizes for his comment, but he doesn’t take back many for his words. I think that most of the time, he is saying how most Bruin fans think and feel.

However, some of Jack’s sayings are remembered and repeated, like “How’s your entertainment factor?” And of course, “High above the ice with Sophia Jurksztowicz at ice level, alongside Andy Brickley, I’m Jack Edwards.” But with all that in mind, this clip has got to be one of my favorites calls of a fight from Jack.

Milan Lucic was my favorite Bruins player at that time, and the way Jack describes the fight is just classic! I know that Jack has said other things that were better, but it’s one of my favorites. I also like when he says that one of the players has taken a tour of the attacking end. Meaning that the player has gone around the outside of the end with the puck before he passes.

Andy Brickly aka Brick

Brick is also passionate but in a different way. He is a former Bruins player and has also played with several other teams. He’s got the technical aspect of the game, but I have heard him “strongly” disagree with a ref call. Despite looking, I couldn’t find a YouTube video of that, but I can demonstrate the technical side that Brick brings to the table when commentating.

Brick also does a lot for the Boston community. Every year he holds a rink contest. Fans can make a rink in their backyards and send a video into NESN in which Brick will pick the winner and then go to that fan’s house and play hockey with them. And sometimes Bruins fans are blessed with him being a guest commentator during a game that is being aired on NBC.

Unfortunately, at this time of the article, neither one has Tweeted anything since November 2020, but the fact remains that these two are the best commentators when it comes to the Boston Bruins. Hopefully, they stay with NESN and continue to bring us the “Entertainment Factor” that every Bruins fan loves to hear.

    Watching the Bruins – Capitals game March 5th. My god, i’ve never heard such homer, awful sports announcers in my life. They have no clue about the game and are soooo home biased it was hard to keep from laughing. Start by giving them a rule book and make them write an exam on it.


      Could not agree more. Jack is a tv studio guy who reads scripts or can announce Little League BB. His mind works so slowly and his speech pattern crawls. He is terribly behind the action by large chunks of time. A total distraction. And of course he has poor objectivity which ruins whatever credibility he may try to establish. I turn him off and listen to music to go with the hockey game…and it’s not Aerosmith or Boston.

    I think You guys are the best announcers / analysts in the NHL! I have to contend with a guy named Jack Michaels who never shuts up through the entire game. Not only That, Jack has a loud and higher pitched voice that grates on the nerves! A large part of the Oiler games I watch are with volume off!
