It looks like Bruins fans will be subjected to Jack Edwards’ syrupy soliloquies for the foreseeable future. The longtime play-by-play voice has recently agreed to a new contract with NESN, according to the Boston Globe’s Chad Finn. A source tells Finn the deal spans four years, which would take Edwards through the 2011-22 season.

Edwards, who became the Bruins’ sole PBP man in 2007-08, is perhaps the most polarizing broadcaster in the market. His ardent pro-Bruins style can cross the line from endearing to irritating, not to mention his penchant for long-winded monologues about the Revolutionary War.

But Edwards remains enthusiastic about the job and calls a clean game. He will once again work alongside analyst Andy Brickley and rinkside reporter Alex Kraemer, who was new to the broadcast last season.

Prior to joining NESN, Edwards worked as an anchor for ESPN’s “SportsCenter.”
