Edmundson dished out two assists in Sunday's win over the Sabres. Edmundson has really surprised this season, racking up 12 points through 31 games. He's more known for his defensive contributions, so it's impressive that he's joining the rush more and has found the back of the net six times. The points come too infrequent for him to warrant a look in most shallow leagues, but his heavy ice time and multi-category contributions make him worth owning in many deep leagues.
Edmundson leads the Western Conference with 65 blocked shots this season. It's no secret that Edmundson has picked up his offensive game, scoring six goals through 24 contests, doubling last campaign's 69-game total. A lot of this improvement stems from head coach Mike Yeo finally having the reigns with St. Louis and implementing an aggressive blue-line scheme, but a lot of this comes from the major strides the 24-year-old made in the offseason. Edmundson should still be viewed as a defense-first asset, though, since he logs 55.5 percent of his face offs in the Blues' zone, which leads to his high blocked-shot count. In his third year of NHL play, Edmundson hasn't flinched, posting a plus-7 rating thus far.
Edmundson netted his fifth goal of the season in Thursday's win over the Coyotes. A blueliner who doesn't play on the power play scoring five times this early in the season is impressive. The 24-year-old had mostly been known for his defensive contributions in the past, but he's turning into a two-way rearguard and has been showcasing his offensive mindset. He's won't keep scoring at this rate, but given his steady ice time and the Blues' strong start, Edmundson is worthy of a look in some deeper formats right now.
Edmundson scored a goal in the 6-4 win over Toronto on Saturday. He has now scored three goals and garnered an assist in his last six games. Edmundson is already on pace to eclipse last season's total of 15 points. While the potential is there at just 24 years old, his role on St. Louis is still too small to deserve current attention in standard-sized formats.
Edmundson scored his third goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's win over Columbus. Edmundson has had a strong start to the season, managing four points and a plus-4 rating through 12 contests. The first-pairing blueliner is an all-around gem for the Blues, blocking shots, dishing out hits and putting pucks on net. His fantasy value is limited due to his lack of power-play time and offensive capabilities, but his overall role and ice time makes him valuable in some deeper formats.
