Boston Bruins prospect Jackson Edward snaps during a playoff game

Published April 7, 2024 at 7:14 PM

In the 7th round of the 2022 NHL Draft, the Boston Bruins picked up Jackson Edward from the London Knights.

Standing at 6'2" and nearly 200 pounds, Edward's presence on the ice is formidable, drawing attention not only for his physical stature but also for his aggressive style of play.

While Edward's prowess with the puck is noteworthy, it's his physicality that truly sets him apart. However, it's not just his robust play that captures headlines; it's his notorious short fuse that often lands him in hot water.

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   

This season, Edward has found himself suspended multiple times, and on Friday, his volatile temper once again reared its head.

Following an incident where he pushed an opponent into his own goalie, Edward took matters into his own hands, unleashing a flurry of punches despite being restrained by officials.

Despite the altercation, Edward somehow avoided ejection from the game. Instead, he was slapped with a rare triple minor for roughing, while his opponent, Markas Samenas, received a double minor.

The discrepancy in penalties raises eyebrows, leaving many puzzled by the outcome of the exchange. With Edward's history of on-ice outbursts, it's likely that this won't be the last time his temper flares up, especially as the playoffs heat up.
