Boston Bruins play-by-play announcer Jack Edwards, who has had controversial takes in the past, made fun of an opposing player’s weight during Tuesday’s NESN broadcast.

Discussing the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Pat Maroon during the Bruins’ 3-1 victory, Edwards noted that the rugged forward was listed as 238 pounds.

“That was Day 1 of training camp,” Edwards said. “I’ve got a feeling he’s had a few more pizzas between then and now.”

Edwards added: “(Intermittent) fasting for Pat Maroon is like four hours without a meal.”

Maroon pulled off a rarity when he won back-to-back Stanley Cups with different teams: the St. Louis Blues in 2019 and Lightning in 2020. He followed that up with a third consecutive championship in 2021 and reached the Final with Tampa Bay last season. He scored series-clinching goals in 2019 and 2022.
