On Tuesday night, Boston Bruins play-by-play commentator Jack Edwards' comments towards Tampa Bay Lightning forward Pat Maroon went viral, as many felt his words to be insensitive, belligerent, and downright unnecessary.
Context, for those who are unfamiliar:
Edwards has received heavy criticism for his choice of words, including from members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association Frank Seravalli and Darren Dreger, among others. Seravalli even suggested that Edwards sounds drunk at times.
Maroon's response was what we were all waiting for, and he took to Twitter to dunk on Edwards. And the 3x Stanley Cup champion made it count by making a donation to Tampa Bay Thrives, a nonprofit aiding those suffering from mental illness and substance abuse.
Maroon also encouraged others to donate, and Lightning captain Steven Stamkos
answered the call shortly after, indicating he would also make a donation.
All class, all the way from Maroon. Instead of mouthing off to Edwards, he let his actions do the talking. Hard to have anything bad to say about Maroon in this light.
