Observations

June 2018: The 24 year old made massive strides this season with the Blues, his second full year with the big club. Edmundson was often paired with captain Alex Pietrangelo which he benefited from greatly, A physical defenseman but one who doesn’t get himself out of position very often. There isn’t a ton he does that’ll blow you away but Edmundson continues to be heavily relied on by the Blues. Josh Epstein

September 2017 – In 2016-2017 Edmundson spent 69 games with the St. Louis Blues.  In the regular season he had three goals and 12 assists with one GWG.  He averaged 17:46 TOI, racking up 60 penalty minutes, 95 blocked shots, and 122 hits.  Edmundson contributed on the penalty kill and was fourth on the team among defensive in TOI on the penalty kill.  In 11 playoff games, Edmundson scored three goals and three assists, including one GWG. Edmundson is a defensive defenseman who projects to have limited offensive productivity.  He is improving and his playoff performance was impressive both visually and with advanced stats. Doug Abrams

 

May 2016 – More of a defensive-minded defenseman, but he did turn in a successful NHL season with the Blues. Edmundson won’t produce a lot of points, but the Blues like what he brings defensively, so he’s in line to stay in the NHL. He and Lindbohm are very similar players, with the Blues seemingly more committed to Edmundson. There are probably better fantasy options at defense from this point in Joel’s development. Matt Kowalski

 

June 2014 – In his first pro seasn, Edmundson took the next step in his development as he played a stay-at-home role for the Chicago Wolves. Statistically, his eight points and 108 PIM in 64 games should catch the eye of multi-category GMs. Not only is he bringing tons of physical play to the table, but he is also showing the potential to score a few more points than the expected output of most defensive-minded defensemen. Eric Daoust

 

March 2013 – The St. Louis Blues have signed Joel Edmundson to a 3-year entry level contract. In 63 games, Edmundson set new WHL career highs in goals (9) and points (25) and continues to remain a decent option as a future penalty minute contributor. Brendan Ross

 

April 2012 – Edmundson comes in the same mold as his teammates and Rangers draft pick Dylan McIlrath, a big bodied, physical defenseman. He excels in his own zone where he is almost impossible to beat. His long reach and mobility make him a nightmare for opposing forwards. He will need to work on becoming a more complete offensive player and continue to improve his overall skating.
