Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Finds twine Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson scored a goal on three shots and added two PIM in Friday's 5-2 win over the Devils.

Edmundson took a slashing minor in the third period, but redeemed himself by scoring on a breakaway after he exited the sin bin. The 26-year-old has four points, 11 hits and eight PIM in his last six outings. Edmundson has five goals, 16 points, 94 hits and 63 PIM in 57 games this season. His recent surge in offense has helped the Hurricanes offset the loss of Dougie Hamilton (lower body), but Edmundson likely won't interest fantasy owners in standard formats.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Chips in with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson recorded an assist, two hits and two PIM in Saturday's 6-5 shootout win over the Golden Knights.

Edmundson has produced an assist in three of his last four games. The 26-year-old blueliner is up to 15 points, 71 shots, 91 hits, 69 blocked shots and 61 PIM through 55 appearances. He could help in deeper fantasy formats due to his solid production in non-scoring categories.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Collects assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson recorded an assist, four PIM and two hits in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Coyotes.

The 26-year-old defenseman has three assists in his last seven games. Always a modest producer on offense, Edmundson has 14 points in 54 contests this season, a career-best pace. He's added 70 shots on goal, 89 hits, 68 blocked shots and 59 PIM.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Finds helper in shootout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson produced an assist and three hits in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks.

Edmundson remains a mostly defensive player, with 13 points, 86 hits, 67 blocked shots and 55 PIM through 52 games. The 26-year-old could produce his first 20-point campaign, but he's not likely to interest fantasy owners outside of deep formats.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Seeing more ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson notched his 12th point of the season with an assist in Friday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Ducks.

More importantly, Edmundson has been promoted to the top defensive pairing ever since Dougie Hamilton went down with a fractured fibula against the Blue Jackets on Jan. 16. Not surprisingly, Edmundson's ice time has taken a bump as a result, with an average TOI of 21:37 in the last two games, compared to his season average of 18:18. Edmundson has been a modest points producer so far this year, but that could be about to change. Keep an eye on his minutes and production, and be ready to act if a positive trend starts to develop.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Marks fourth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Flyers.

Edmundson has four goals through 43 games, doubling last year's total and putting him three tallies shy of a career high. The 26-year-old is known more for his defensive play, however, as he has started just 42.9 percent of shifts in the offensive zone this season.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Lengthy scoring drought continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson failed to crack the scoresheet for the 13th time in 14 games Monday against the Maple Leafs.

Apart from a six-game, eight-point outburst in mid-November, Edmundson has been very quiet this season. In a game where his team erupted for six goals, fantasy owners were no doubt hoping for at least a secondary assist or two, but alas, it was not to be. Edmundson's fantasy value remains extremely limited given his current scoring woes.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Building toward career year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson scored a goal on five shots in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Wild.

Edmundson has been a nice surprise for the Canes this season, filling a top-four role on the team's second defensive pairing opposite Brett Pesce. Now with nine points on the season, the 26-year-old blueliner could crack the 20-point plateau for the first time in his career. He has decent fantasy value in deeper formats.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Sudden scoring binge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson notched his eighth point of the season with an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Panthers.

The amazing thing is, all eight of Edmundson's points have come in the past six games, following a brutal start to the season that saw him go 17 games without scoring a point. So what's behind this sudden scoring outburst? After a brief stint on the Cane's third defensive pairing, he's now back on the second unit with Brett Pesce where he started the season, and looks way more comfortable there. Keep in mind, however, Edmundson has never scored more than 17 points in his five-year career, so this current scoring binge probably won't last long.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Unlikely offensive outburst
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson scored a goal and two assists in Monday's 8-2 win over Ottawa. He added three shots on goal and a plus-3 rating.

Wait, what? Edmundson entered the game without a single point through his first 17 games in 2019-20 and he left with his first three-point effort since Dec. 2016. Acquired from St. Louis during the preseason, the 26-year-old did not eclipse 17 points in any of his four seasons with the Blues. Needless to say, tonight's performance by Edmundson is not actionable for fantasy owners.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Offense not first priority
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson has zero points in his first seven games this season.

In fairness, the Canes knew they weren't getting an offensive blueliner when they acquired Edmundson from St. Louis in the Justin Faulk trade back in September. In four seasons with the Blues, the 26-year-old averaged just 13 points, but was always among the team leaders in hits and blocked shots. That trend has continued this season with the Canes, as Edmundson is currently tied for the team lead in blocked shots (18) and tied for second in hits (16). From a fantasy perspective, he may be of some use in formats that reward those peripheral stat categories.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Shipped to Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hurricanes acquired Edmundson via trade from the Blues, Tom Gulitti of reports. They sent Justin Faulk and a 2020 fifth-round pick while also receiving Dominik Bokk and a 2021 seventh-round pick.

Faulk is the headliner of this trade, but the Canes will receive a sturdy blueliner who can kill penalties. Edmundson doesn't light up the scoresheet -- he has never surpassed 17 points in a season -- but the 26-year-old dished out 128 hits and blocked 106 shots over 64 games last year. He'll likely slot in on Carolina's bottom pairing with penalty-kill upside, and he'll be a bargain in that role playing for $3.1 million AAV as a left-handed defenseman. Edmundson will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.

Blues' Joel Edmundson: Earns one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson was awarded a one-year, $3.1 million contract with St. Louis on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

It's a modest increase for Edmundson, who will return to the Stanley Cup champions for at least one more season. The blueliner registered two goals, nine helpers and 102 shots last year in 64 games, in part due to injury. With Vince Dunn pushing for a bigger role, the veteran Edmundson could find himself serving as a healthy scratch from time to time throughout the 2019-20 campaign.

Blues' Joel Edmundson: Seeking arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson filed for salary arbitration Friday.

The Blues extended a $3 million qualifying offer for the upcoming season to Edmundson on June 25, but the blueliner seemingly wants something different. Edmundson has seen action in at least 60 games over each of the last four seasons and has collected 52 points (13 goals, 39 assists) over that span.

Blues' Joel Edmundson: Receives qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson earned a qualifying offer from the Blues on Tuesday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Edmundson is set to make $3 million as a base salary in the deal, so it's likely he elect to stick with the Blues. The defensman didn't quite move the needle in terms of fantasy production last season, collecting just 11 points in 64 games. The 25-year-old will likely carve out a role on the back end next season, and will be best used in DFS formats when riding a hot streak.

Blues' Joel Edmundson: On three-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson registered an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Sharks in Game 3.

Edmundson has a goal and three helpers through three games in the series, adding seven hits and five blocks. The defenseman is an unlikely source of offense, as he had only 11 points in 64 regular-season games, but he can be used in DFS formats while he's hot.

Blues' Joel Edmundson: Stays hot with pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson picked up two assists in Monday's 4-2 win over the Sharks in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals.

Edmundson now has a goal and three helpers along with eight shots and 10 hits in his last four games. The defender is listed on the top pairing for the Blues, but he skated only 15:49 in Monday's contest. He's worth a look to DFS owners while he's chipping in points.

Blues' Joel Edmundson: Scores rare goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Sharks in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.

Edmundson has managed four points in 12 outings in the postseason, a much stronger pace than the 11 points he had in 64 regular-season games this year. He still remains a defense-first blueliner, as evidenced by Edmundson's 26 hits and 22 blocked shots during the playoffs.

Blues' Joel Edmundson: Helpers in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson racked up an assist, four hits and three blocked shots in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Jets in Game 3.

Edmundson has two assists, nine hits and five blocks over three games in the series. He's not a likely source of offense, but with 128 hits and 106 blocks in the regular season, he could provide a boost in DFS if he can keep his hot streak going in Tuesday's Game 4.

April 13, 2019 08:44 AM
Blues' Joel Edmundson: Dishes assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson produced an assist and three hits for Friday's 4-3 win over the Jets in Game 2 of their first-round series.

Edmundson produced 128 hits, 106 blocked shots and 102 shots on goal to go with 11 points in 64 regular-season games. Skating on the third pair won't do any favors for his offense, but his physicality could make him an option for fantasy owners if the Blues make a deep run in the postseason.
