Edmundson scored a goal with a plus-2 rating and two blocked shots in Friday's 4-3 win against the Ducks. Edmundson's goal came with twenty seconds left in regulation and ended up as the game-winning tally. He has just three goals in 120 career NHL games, so don't get excited about his fantasy prospects going forward. Edmundson, who has played in 53 games, is only worth using in the very deepest of leagues for his occasional penalty minutes (52), hits (105) and blocked shots (70).
Edmundson had an assist and two blocked shots over 18:41 of ice time in Thursday's 5-1 win over Toronto. The second-year defenseman doesn't generate much offense for the Blues, but as improved over his rookie season, moving up from .13 points per game to .29. Unfortunately, defensemen that get little power-play ice time, he'll never be an offensive factor for a fantasy team. The hits category is his biggest asset, averaging a tick more than two per game.
Edmundson had four shots on net and scored the Blues' first goal in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes. We don't often see Edmundson, who directed five attempts toward the net, among the team leaders in shots. But the 23-year-old defenseman is a bit more comfortable in his second NHL season. There's been a slight increase in shots per game and, with nine points in 27 games, he's equaled last season's output over 67 games.
Edmundson recorded three assists in a loss to the Blackhawks on Saturday. He came into the night with only three helpers, so he doubled his season total. Five of his assists have come since returning from an upper-body injury on Dec. 6. He also played a season-high 21:02 on Saturday versus the Blues.
Edmundson had two hits and two blocked shots in 18:38 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Montreal. Edmundson was making his return to the lineup after missing 12 games due to an upper-body injury and there was apparently no taking it easy on him. He played three minutes more than his season average of 15:19, with none of that ice time coming in the extra period.
