Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Suffers upper body injury
Edmundson suffered an upper-body injury Thursday versus the Red Wings, according to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Exits with lower-body injury
Edmundson suffered a lower-body injury and won't return to Thursday's game versus the Red Wings.
Edmundson was hurt in the first period and ruled out early in the second. The 29-year-old's defensive presence will be missed if he's forced to miss additional time, but he has just six points in 39 games this season, so his absence won't impact most fantasy rosters.... See More ... See Less

Edmundson had an assist, two shots on goal and four blocked shots over 19:18 of ice time in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Lightning.
Christian Dvorak won an offensive zone draw back to Edmundson, who fed partner Kaiden Guhle for the Canadiens' lone goal. The helper was Edmundson's fourth, giving him five points for the season, and he leads Montreal with 78 blocked shots over 25 games.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Puts up assist in overtime win
Edmundson logged an assist and three hits in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Coyotes.
Edmundson snapped a five-game point drought when he earned the secondary assist on Mike Hoffman's game-winning goal in overtime. Through 22 outings, Edmundson has managed four points, a minus-7 rating, 71 blocked shots, 32 hits, 26 shots on net and 21 PIM. He'll continue to fill more of a defensive role in the Canadiens' top four, so fantasy managers in most standard formats can look elsewhere for help on the blue line.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Gets helper in win
Edmundson produced an assist, six blocked shots and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.
Edmundson ended a four-game point drought with his helper. The 29-year-old blueliner is up to a goal, two assists, 22 shots on net, 54 blocked shots, 20 hits, 21 PIM and a minus-6 rating through 16 contests. He continues to serve as a defensive presence in the Canadiens' top four, so he won't be particularly useful for fantasy managers.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Booted from game
Edmundson was assessed 17 PIM, including a game misconduct, in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Oilers.
Edmundson was partly responsible for two of Edmonton's three power-play goals in the second period.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Pots first goal
Edmundson scored a goal on two shots and blocked three shots over 21:38 of ice time in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over Chicago.
Edmundson collected a clearing attempt in the neutral zone, worked a give-and-go with Sean Monahan and redirected a pass behind Arvid Soderblom for the first goal of the game. It was the first marker for Edmundson, who is known more for traditional defensive statistics like hits and blocks. The 29-year-old Manitoban has two points, 20 shots, 13 hits, 39 blocked shots and two PIM over 11 games.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Records first point
Edmundson had an assist, five shots on net, one hit and eight blocked shots over 22:29 of ice time in Saturday's 6-4 loss to Vegas.
Edmundson played his second game of the season after missing the first few weeks with a lower-body injury. He's not considered an offensive-minded blueliner, so the team-high tying five shots were surprising. The gaudy block total's also out of the norm. Edmundson has 12 blocked shots in two games in 2022-23 but a career average of only 1.52 per game.... See More ... See Less

Edmundson (lower body) logged 21:07 of ice time in Montreal's 3-2 overtime loss to Winnipeg on Thursday.
Edmundson was playing in his first game of 2022-23. He had a hit and four blocks in his season debut. He's not a major offensive contributor, but he can be a source of blocks, hits and PIM in fantasy leagues when he's healthy.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Traveling with team
Edmundson (lower body) will join the Canadiens on their upcoming four-game road trip, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports Tuesday.

Edmundson (lower body) is practicing in a non-contact jersey Saturday, per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.
Edmundson has yet to play this season as he has been out of action since the start of training camp. While this is an encouraging step in his recovery, Edmundson has had trouble staying healthy over the last two seasons, playing only 24 games in 2021-22.... See More ... See Less

Edmundson (lower body) is still without a clear recovery timeline after general manager Kent Hughes told reporters, "We're encouraged by his progress," per Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca.
Edmunson was ruled out indefinitely during the preseason due to his lower-body issue, and it appears his status hasn't significantly changed.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Sidelined indefinitely
Edmundson is considered out indefinitely with a lower-body injury, TSN 690's Jon Still reports.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Scores first of season
Edmundson had a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Panthers. He added seven hits and three blocked shots.
Edmundson started the play in the Montreal end then finished it with the goal. Nick Suzuki circled the Florida goal and found Edmundson sneaking into the slot for the defensman's first goal and second point since making his season debut two weeks ago. His best work comes when Montreal is on defense, so goals from Edmundson are rare. He scored three in 55 games last season for the Canadiens.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Garners first point of season

Edmundson will not play Sunday as he is being eased back into action, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Edmundson made his season debut Saturday, logging six hits, two shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-1 rating in 16:38 of ice time. The Canadiens don't want to rush him back into a full-time role just yet, so he'll sit out the second half of a back-to-back as they visit the Flyers. Considering he had 13 points in 55 games last season, Edmundson's absence is only likely to be of consequence in deeper fantasy formats. He should be available again Tuesday versus the Coyotes. The Canadiens will have to call up a defenseman for Sunday's game after Kale Clague (upper body) went on injured reserve Saturday.... See More ... See Less
