by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: 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.

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 notched an assist and two hits in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.

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.

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hurricanes traded Edmundson's (undisclosed) rights to the Canadiens on Saturday in exchange for a 2020 fifth-round pick.

Edmundson is a pending unrestricted free agent, but Montreal will be the only club that can engage in contract negotiations with the 27-year-old vet until free agency officially opens Oct. 9.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Unavailable for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup against Boston for Wednesday's Game 5.

Edmundson's continued absence will mean more minutes for Sami Vatanen while Jake Gardiner avoids a potential stint in the press box. Prior to getting hurt, the 26-year-old blueliner notched one goal, 16 shots and 11 blocks in four postseason contests. With a back-to-back upcoming (if needed), Edmundson may not be available in time to play in this series.

Hurricanes' Joel Edmundson: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson (undisclosed) won't be available for Monday's Game 4 matchup with Boston, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.

Edmundson will miss his third straight game due to his undisclosed issue. Coach Rod Brind'Amour told reporters Edmunson was closer to returning than teammate Andrei Svechnikov (leg), who is considered doubtful for the remainder of the series against the Bruins. With Edmundson on the shelf, Sami Vatanen jumped up to the second pairing with Brady Skjei and should get plenty of minutes Monday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's Game 3 against Carolina, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Edmundson's absence won't make waves in the fantasy world due to his meager offensive production, but he's been an important player for the Hurricanes during the playoffs, averaging a whopping 23:40 of ice time while posting a plus-4 rating through Carolina's first four postseason games. The 27-year-old blueliner will be reevaluated ahead of Monday's Game 4.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmundson was deemed unfit to play in Thursday's Game 2 clash with Boston, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

The specifics regarding the absence remain unclear, as the 27-year-old has played in every Hurricanes' game since the NHL has returned. In his stead, Sami Vatanen (undisclosed) will return to the lineup with Haydn Fleury and Trevor van Riemsdyk operating as the team's third defensive pair.
