Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Chips in with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson recorded an assist in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 6.

Edmundson set up Cole Caufield for a go-ahead goal at 9:36 of the second period. The 27-year-old Edmundson is up to six assists, 20 shots on net, 23 blocked shots and 43 hits through 17 playoff outings. He remains the more defensive half of a pairing with Jeff Petry -- Edmundson probably won't interest many fantasy managers during the Stanley Cup Finals.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Delivers two helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson produced two assists and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights in Game 2.

Edmundson helped out on tallies by Joel Armia and Paul Byron in the Canadiens' first win of the series. The 27-year-old Edmundson mainly plays in a defensive role, but he's amassed five helpers in his last six outings. That accounts for all of his offense in the playoffs, and he's added 33 hits, 21 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in 13 contests.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Notches assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson recorded an assist and two blocked shots in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Jets in Game 3.

Edmundson found Joel Armia in the defensive zone, and Armia sniped the empty net from distance. All three of Edmundson's playoff assists have come in the last three games. The 27-year-old blueliner has added 15 shots on net, 26 hits and 17 blocked shots in 10 appearances. He may be leaned on to pick up extra minutes if Jeff Petry (upper body) can't play in Monday's Game 4.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Surprise contributor in Game 1 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson had a pair of assists in Wednesday's 5-3 win over Winnipeg in Game 1.

Posting his first point since May 5, Edmundson was fantastic for the Habs in Game 1, assisting on Eric Staal's 2-0 goal and Nick Suzuki's third of the postseason. The 27-year-old also contributed elsewhere in the contest, posting five shots, two hits and three blocks in 24:44 of ice time.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Nets only goal Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson worked a give-and-go with Tyler Toffoli and finished it off with a wrister at the bottom of the left circle, tying the game at 1-1 with 32 seconds left in the first period. It was just Edmundson's third goal of the year and first since March 20. The 27-year-old defenseman has 13 points with a plus-25 rating in 52 games in his first season with Montreal.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Adds helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson had one assist, two shots on net, one hit and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Edmundson recorded his first point since April 7, snapping an 11-game pointless streak, when he and Jeff Petry teamed up on Nick Suzuki's 10th goal of the season in the second period. It was the 12th point for the stay-at-home defenseman, who leads Montreal at plus-27.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Plus-3, assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson had an assist, two shots on net, two hits, two blocked shots and a plus-3 in Tuesday's 4-0 win over Edmonton.

The Canadiens hadn't played in over a week, but they showed no signs of a layoff. They attacked early, had more energy than the Oilers, and got pucks to the net. Edmundson fired a shot from the point that generated a rebound and a couple of whacks from Paul Byron and Artturi Lehkonen, who deposited a backhander early in the first period. It was Montreal's second goal in the first 3:23 of the game. Edmundson, not known for his offense, has points in two straight contests and five over the last eight. The plus-3 raises him to a season-high plus-27 for the season.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Pockets second goal of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson scored a goal on three shots and had two blocks in a 5-4 shootout win over the Canucks on Saturday.

Edmundson's long wrist shot through a mess of bodies found its way past Vancouver netminder Braden Holtby, giving the Canadiens a 3-2 lead late in the second period. It was just the second goal of the year for Edmundson, but he has managed to pick up a point in four of his last seven contests. Edmundson will never be an impactful fantasy asset, but the first-year Hab has been a terrific real-life addition for Montreal, logging a team-leading plus-24 rating to go with his nine points.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson notched an assist, two shots on net and two PIM in Monday's 4-2 win over the Jets.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Records assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson had an assist, two shots on net and one hit in Saturday's 3-1 loss to Calgary.

Edmundson redeemed himself by picking up the secondary helper on Jeff Petry's third-period goal, his second assist over the last three games. Earlier in the period, he took a bad path on a Calgary rush, leaving Mikael Backlund alone in front of Carey Price to give the Flames a 3-0 lead. The defensive-minded blueliner has one goal, six assists, 40 shots and is a team-leading plus-25 over 27 games.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Solid in big win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson recorded an assist, four shots on goal and a plus-4 rating in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

Edmundson being on the ice typically led to good things for the Canadiens. He was rewarded with an assist on Phillip Danault's third-period tally. The 27-year-old Edmundson has just six points through 25 games, but he's added an impressive plus-26 rating, 44 hits and 26 blocked shots. The Manitoba native is a steady defender -- the Canadiens may need that skill with Ben Chiarot (hand) ruled out for Thursday's game in Calgary.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson helped out on Jesperi Kotkaniemi's second-period tally. Mostly a defensive presence, Edmundson has four points, a plus-15 rating, 33 hits and 19 blocked shots through 16 games this year. His fantasy appeal is likely limited to deep formats only.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Logs assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson had an assist, one shot on goal, one hit, two blocked shots and was plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Canucks.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Earns respect, scores
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson scored an empty-net goal on two shots along with two hits, one blocked shot and a five-minute fighting major in Saturday's 5-2 win over Vancouver.

Edmundson, an offseason acquisition, earned the respect of his new team early. He sized up the 6-foot-8 Tyler Myers, whose late-game hit Thursday resulted in a concussion for Joel Armia, during warmups. The two then squared off three minutes into the game. Later, Edmundson's shot from in front of his own net went dead center into the Canucks' empty net. It was his first goal in the bleu, blanc et rouge.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Leads team in hits, blocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson had two shots, three hits and one block over 19:55 of ice time in Monday's 3-1 win over Edmonton.

Edmundson leads Montreal through three games with nine blocked shots and is tied for the team lead with 10 hits. He also tops the Habs at plus-5. Edmundson skates on the second pair but could see his playing time eventually take a hit, if coach Claude Julien wants to give rookie blueliner Alexander Romanov, who is on the third pair, a larger role in five-on-five situations.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: On the ice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson (undisclosed) was on the ice at Monday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Edmundson had an undisclosed injury that forced him to miss a playoff game against Boston last August, but he was on the ice for Montreal's first practice. He'll be playing for his third team in three seasons after Montreal acquired him from the Hurricanes. Although Edmundson enjoyed his finest offensive season last year, posting a career-high 20 points and tying his career high with seven goals, pairing him with an offensive initiator like Petry means Edmundson will be targeted to be a defensive-minded blueliner.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 27-year-old notched career-highs in points (20), assists (13) and goals (seven) across 68 games last season. He'll add some stability and a veteran presence on the back end that features plenty of young talent along with Shea Weber heading into the 2020-21 season.
