Top Joel Edmundson News

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Back at it

    Edmundson (undisclosed) told reporters he's good to go for Thursday's matchup with New Jersey, Mark Masters of TSN reports.

    Edmundson should return to a bottom-pairing role following his eight-game absence. The 30-year-old blueliner has picked up just six points through 44 contests this season, so his return won't impact any fantasy lineups.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Ruled out at least two more games

    Edmundson (undisclosed) will not be available against Pittsburgh or New Jersey on Monday and Tuesday, respectively, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Edmundson is still reportedly in contention to return versus the Devils on Thursday, though he hasn't been officially cleared to return. Once given the all-clear, Edmundson should reclaim a spot on the blue line, potentially at the expense of Simon Benoit, though it's possible the Maple Leafs could use the added depth to rest veterans before the playoffs.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Resumes skating

    Edmundson (undisclosed) skated Wednesday for the first time since he sustained an undisclosed injury, according to David Alter of The Hockey News. Edmundson's next step might be to participate in Friday's practice, but the 30-year-old defenseman will still miss Toronto's next two games at a minimum, per Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun.

    Edmundson hasn't been in the lineup since March 24, but it seems like he's making progress in his recovery. He has a goal, six points, 73 hits and 60 blocks in 51 outings between Washington and Toronto this season. With Edmundson ruled out for Toronto's upcoming two contests, his next potential opportunity to return will be Monday versus Pittsburgh.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Sidelined with undisclosed injury

    Edmundson (undisclosed) is expected to miss the next three games, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Edmundson's tallied just six points through 51 games split between Washington and Toronto this season, so his absence shouldn't impact any fantasy lineups. Connor Timmins could see regular usage until Edmundson is ready to return.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Makes Toronto debut

    Edmundson had one shot on goal in 19:03 of ice time Saturday in a 3-2 win over Montreal.

    He was acquired in a trade with Washington on Thursday. Edmundson doesn't offer much in the way of fantasy value. He posted one goal, five assists, 19 PIM, 59 hits, 49 blocks and 41 shots in 44 games with the Capitals before the deal. Still, he should help the Maple Leafs on the penalty kill and provide some physicality from the blue line.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Traded to Toronto

    The Maple Leafs acquired Edmundson from the Capitals on Thursday in exchange for a 2024 third-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    Edmundson had played in 44 games with the Capitals this season, recording one goal and five assists. The 30-year-old will look to bring some physicality to Toronto, as he's logged 59 hits and 49 blocked shots this season. He will likely slide into the third defensive pairing for the Leafs.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Bags apple Friday

    Edmundson tallied an assist, three shots and three hits during Friday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    Edmundson has three helpers in his last seven games, which should boost his asking price if the Capitals become sellers before March 8 trade deadline. The 30-year-old is an effective stay-at-home defender who could be very helpful for teams with Stanley Cup aspirations. Edmundson has six points, 49 blocked shots and 58 hits in 43 games this season.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Bags apple Thursday

    Edmundson tallied an assist and dished out four hits during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Lightning.

    Edmundson has two helpers in his last three outings after failing to find the scoresheet in his previous 11 games. The offense isn't likely to last, but it can only help boost the 30-year-old's appeal to other teams looking to add a stay-at-home defenseman should the Capitals emerge as sellers before the March 8 trade deadline.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Returns from injury

    Edmundson had one hit over 15:50 of ice time in Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Blues.

    Edmundson (upper body) returned to his usual spot alongside Ethan Bear on the second pairing. The 30-year-old Edmundson played the fewest minutes amongst Washington's defensemen but was able to block two shots against the Blues.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Ready to go Saturday

    Edmundson (upper body) will return Saturday against St. Louis, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

    Edmundson will rejoin the Caps' lineup after missing Thursday's contest. The 30-year-old blueliner has a goal and three points through 27 games this season. Trevor van Riemsdyk will likely return to the press box due to Edmundson's return.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Out Thursday

    Edmundson (undisclosed) will miss Thursday's contest against St. Louis, per Tom Gulitti of NHL.com.

    Edmundson was regarded as a game-time decision but ultimately didn't join the Capitals for the pregame warmups. He has a goal, three points, 23 hits and 32 blocks in 27 outings in 2023-24. With Edmundson unavailable, Trevor van Riemsdyk is likely to draw into the lineup Thursday.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Questionable for Thursday

    Edmundson (undisclosed) is uncertain to play Thursday against the Blues, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

    Edmundson took the morning skate, but he is considered a game-time call against his former team. Trevor van Riemsdyk seems likely to return to the lineup regardless, but Alexander Alexeyev would also draw in if the 30-year-old is unable to play.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Dishes helper Saturday

    Edmundson tallied an assist while logging 10:58 of ice time during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

    Edmundson's helper on T.J. Oshie's game-winning goal snapped a nine-game scoring drought. The 30-year-old Edmundson has been getting regular ice time since his recovery from a hand injury sustained during the preseason, but with just two points and a minus-4 rating in 24 appearances, he isn't much of a fantasy asset.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Dishes helper Sunday

    Edmundson recorded an assist and a plus-3 rating during Sunday's 4-2 win over the Blackhawks.

    The assist marks the first point for Edmundson -- who missed the first 14 games of the season recovering from a broken hand -- in 11 games with the Capitals. The 30-year-old plays a simple, steady game on the back end, but he is not enough of an offensive contributor to garner much fantasy consideration.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Making Capitals debut Saturday

    As expected, Edmundson (hand) will play Saturday against the Blue Jackets, Sammi Silber of The Hockey News reports.

    Edmundson was taken off long-term injured reserve earlier in the day to make his Washington debut. He missed the first 14 games of the 2023-24 campaign after suffering a broken hand during the preseason. The 30-year-old will be a valuable physical presence for the Capitals, but his lack of offensive upside confines his fantasy appeal to deeper leagues that credit hits and blocked shots.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Removed from LTIR

    Edmundson (hand) was activated from long-term injured reserve Saturday, per Sammi Silber of The Hockey News.

    In a corresponding move, Dylan McIlrath has been returned to AHL Hershey. It appears as though Edmundson will make his Washington debut against Columbus on Saturday after undergoing a procedure Sept. 26 to stabilize his fractured hand. He recorded 13 points, 149 blocked shots and 112 hits in 61 games with Montreal last season.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Takes practice Monday

    Edmundson (hand) was on the ice in a non-contact jersey during Monday's practice, Sammi Silber of The Hockey News reports.

    Edmundson is inching closer to making his Capitals debut following a hand injury during preseason that required surgery. The rugged blueliner's debut would be a welcome sight for a Capitals team without the services of Trevor van Riemsdyk (lower body) and Martin Fehervary (lower body).

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Skating again

    Edmundson (hand) has resumed skating and could return to practice later this week according to Capitals General Manager Brian MacLellan, Tarik El-Bashir of Monumental Sports Network reports.

    Edmundson has been out since suffering the injury during a preseason practice in September, but he could be ready to ramp up his workload in the coming days. The 30-year-old's return can't come soon enough with Trevor van Riemsdyk (lower body) now sidelined.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Moves to LTIR

    Edmundson (hand) was moved to long-term injured reserve Monday, per Tom Gulitti of NHL.com.

    Edmundson, who underwent a procedure Sept. 26 to stabilize his fractured hand, was initially expected to be sidelined for four-to-six weeks. His placement on LTIR won't impact that timetable, but it does ensure that he will be out until at least the six-week mark of it. He will be eligible to be activated as early as Nov. 8 against Florida.
