  • Edmundson scored a goal on four shots to go along with three hits and two blocked shots in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Senators. Edmundson stepped into a perfect feed from Jake Evans and drilled the puck past Anton Forsberg. It was the third goal in 21 games since the defenseman came off injured reserve March 12.

  • Edmundson had a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Panthers. He added seven hits and three blocked shots. Edmundson started the play in the Montreal end then finished it with the goal. Nick Suzuki circled the Florida goal and found Edmundson sneaking into the slot for the defensman's first goal and second point since making his season debut two weeks ago. His best work comes when Montreal is on defense, so goals from Edmundson are rare. He scored three in 55 games last season for the Canadiens.

  • Edmundson had an assist, one hit and two blocked shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over Ottawa. Edmundson poked the puck out of Montreal's end to Cole Caufield, who did the rest and upped the Canadiens' lead to 3-1. It was the first point of the season for Edmundson, who returned from a back injury a week ago. He's played in four of the five games since his return, sitting only for the second of a back-to-back set.

  • Edmundson will not play Sunday as he is being eased back into action, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports. Edmundson made his season debut Saturday, logging six hits, two shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-1 rating in 16:38 of ice time. The Canadiens don't want to rush him back into a full-time role just yet, so he'll sit out the second half of a back-to-back as they visit the Flyers. Considering he had 13 points in 55 games last season, Edmundson's absence is only likely to be of consequence in deeper fantasy formats. He should be available again Tuesday versus the Coyotes. The Canadiens will have to call up a defenseman for Sunday's game after Kale Clague (upper body) went on injured reserve Saturday.

  • Edmundson (back) will be activated off injured reserve and make his season debut Saturday against Seattle, John Lu of TSN.ca reports. Edmundson is expected to slot into a bottom-pairing role for Saturday's contest. The 28-year-old rearguard tallied 13 points through 55 games with the Canadiens last season.
