The Boston Bruins Draft Jackson Edward in the Seventh Round of the 2022 NHL Draft

Edward was drafted with the 200th pick overall in the 2022 NHL Draft by the Boston Bruins. Elite Prospects described the seventh-round choice as” violent, and he uses that violence to emphatically kill plays at the blue line and end the cycle.

He’ll even draw in forechecking pres- sure by skating towards it or cutting back, then hitting the gas pedal before starting the breakout”. Edward’s offensive game had improved dramatically as well.
