Jack Edwards, the long-time play-by-play voice of the Boston Bruins and the narrator behind many of the iconic moments in Bruins' history, will sign off for the last time following Boston's postseason games.

Edwards first began calling Bruins games in 2005 and became the primary play-by-play voice of the B's, a role which he has held to date. Has often endeared himself to Bruins fans, while drawing pique from opposing fan bases for his "homer" label.

NESN provided an incredible video that gave an admirable effort at encapsulating Edwards' nearly 20 years behind the mic into a three and a half minute montage.

Edwards has heavy New England ties, he served as the hockey play-by-play broadcaster for the University of New Hampshire and moved onto news stations in Manchester, N.H., Boston, Mass., and Providence, R.I. He also worked at ESPN as a SportsCenter anchor from 1991-2003.

Edwards, 67, has opened up about his speech issues in recent seasons. In a candid interview in February, he shared that he had undergone neurological testing at Massachusetts General Hospital, which had not revealed any "specific diagnosis or medical term" for the challenges he has faced and shared that he had been seeking speech therapy.

Alex Faust, a Northeastern University graduate, has filled in for Edwards this season. Faust has also called games for the Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers, as well as national NHL and MLB broadcasts. His name could potentially be in the mix as a successor for Edwards.

With Boston set to embark on a playoff run, Edwards would certainly love to cap off his career by adding another ring to accompany his 2011 Stanley Cup ring.
