Edmundson (undisclosed) will join the team for Saturday's game-day skate but is not expected to play.

The news effectively rules Edmundson out for at least two more games, though it could certainly be longer. Even once cleared to play, the defenseman won't offer much more than mid-range fantasy value given his limited offensive upside. With the amount of time he has missed already, the Manitoba native may be hard-pressed to get over the 20-point threshold considering he has reached that mark just once in his six-year NHL career.
