  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Posts rare helper in loss

    Edmundson recorded an assist in Game 3 against the Bruins on Wednesday in a 4-2 home loss.

    Edmundson rushed toward the attacking zone after John Tavares sent a crisp pass his way from center ice, and it led to a Matthew Knies goal courtesy of a Mitch Marner helper. Still, since the Leafs are down 2-1 to Boston in the Conference Quarterfinals and are averaging just 2.00 goals per contest, this team needs to pick up the pace offensively. Edmundson isn't expected to do much in that area as a third-pairing defenseman without a role on the power play.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Ready for Saturday

    Edmundson (rest) is set to play in Game 1 against Boston on Saturday, per Jonas Siegel of The Athletic.

    Edmundson didn't play in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to Tampa Bay so that he could get a breather before the playoffs. He finished the regular season with a goal, six points, 80 hits and 65 blocks in 53 contests between Washington and Toronto. Edmundson is projected to start the postseason on the third pairing alongside Timothy Liljegren.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Out Wednesday

    Edmundson (rest) will miss Wednesday's tilt versus Tampa Bay, per Luke Fox of Sportsnet.

    Edmundson will finish the regular season with a goal and six points in 53 contests. He missed nine of 10 outings from March 26-April 13 because of injury, which is likely why the Leafs have opted to give him the night off against the Lightning.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Playing Tuesday

    Edmundson (undisclosed) is set to play Tuesday versus the Panthers, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Edmundson has been banged up down the stretch, but he'll draw in for Tuesday's game. The Maple Leafs have nine available defensemen currently, so it's still possible the veteran is rested for Wednesday's tilt versus the Lightning.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Might play Tuesday

    Edmundson (undisclosed) will be re-evaluated ahead of a matchup with Florida on Tuesday. Head coach Sheldon Keefe told reporters, "We'll see where he's at tomorrow just to be sure, but practice today was a positive sign for him," per Mark Masters of TSN.

    Edmundson has played in just one of Toronto's last 10 outings due to various injury concerns but seems to be nearing a return to action. Considering the defenseman has just six points in 44 contests, few fantasy managers should be banking on Edmundson producing offensively.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Sitting Saturday

    Edmundson (undisclosed) won't play Saturday against Detroit, according to Mark Masters of TSN.

    The Maple Leafs are being very cautious with a new injury that popped up for Edmundson. He logged 19:22 of ice time in Toronto's 6-5 loss to New Jersey after missing eight games. Timothy Liljegren (upper body) will replace Edmundson in Saturday's lineup.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Back at it

    Edmundson (undisclosed) told reporters he's good to go for Thursday's matchup with New Jersey, Mark Masters of TSN reports.

    Edmundson should return to a bottom-pairing role following his eight-game absence. The 30-year-old blueliner has picked up just six points through 44 contests this season, so his return won't impact any fantasy lineups.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Ruled out at least two more games

    Edmundson (undisclosed) will not be available against Pittsburgh or New Jersey on Monday and Tuesday, respectively, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Edmundson is still reportedly in contention to return versus the Devils on Thursday, though he hasn't been officially cleared to return. Once given the all-clear, Edmundson should reclaim a spot on the blue line, potentially at the expense of Simon Benoit, though it's possible the Maple Leafs could use the added depth to rest veterans before the playoffs.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Resumes skating

    Edmundson (undisclosed) skated Wednesday for the first time since he sustained an undisclosed injury, according to David Alter of The Hockey News. Edmundson's next step might be to participate in Friday's practice, but the 30-year-old defenseman will still miss Toronto's next two games at a minimum, per Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun.

    Edmundson hasn't been in the lineup since March 24, but it seems like he's making progress in his recovery. He has a goal, six points, 73 hits and 60 blocks in 51 outings between Washington and Toronto this season. With Edmundson ruled out for Toronto's upcoming two contests, his next potential opportunity to return will be Monday versus Pittsburgh.

    Edmundson (undisclosed) is expected to miss the next three games, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Edmundson's tallied just six points through 51 games split between Washington and Toronto this season, so his absence shouldn't impact any fantasy lineups. Connor Timmins could see regular usage until Edmundson is ready to return.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Makes Toronto debut

    Edmundson had one shot on goal in 19:03 of ice time Saturday in a 3-2 win over Montreal.

    He was acquired in a trade with Washington on Thursday. Edmundson doesn't offer much in the way of fantasy value. He posted one goal, five assists, 19 PIM, 59 hits, 49 blocks and 41 shots in 44 games with the Capitals before the deal. Still, he should help the Maple Leafs on the penalty kill and provide some physicality from the blue line.

  • Maple Leafs' Joel Edmundson: Traded to Toronto

    The Maple Leafs acquired Edmundson from the Capitals on Thursday in exchange for a 2024 third-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    Edmundson had played in 44 games with the Capitals this season, recording one goal and five assists. The 30-year-old will look to bring some physicality to Toronto, as he's logged 59 hits and 49 blocked shots this season. He will likely slide into the third defensive pairing for the Leafs.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Bags apple Friday

    Edmundson tallied an assist, three shots and three hits during Friday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    Edmundson has three helpers in his last seven games, which should boost his asking price if the Capitals become sellers before March 8 trade deadline. The 30-year-old is an effective stay-at-home defender who could be very helpful for teams with Stanley Cup aspirations. Edmundson has six points, 49 blocked shots and 58 hits in 43 games this season.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Bags apple Thursday

    Edmundson tallied an assist and dished out four hits during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Lightning.

    Edmundson has two helpers in his last three outings after failing to find the scoresheet in his previous 11 games. The offense isn't likely to last, but it can only help boost the 30-year-old's appeal to other teams looking to add a stay-at-home defenseman should the Capitals emerge as sellers before the March 8 trade deadline.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Returns from injury

    Edmundson had one hit over 15:50 of ice time in Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Blues.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Ready to go Saturday

    Edmundson (upper body) will return Saturday against St. Louis, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

    Edmundson will rejoin the Caps' lineup after missing Thursday's contest. The 30-year-old blueliner has a goal and three points through 27 games this season. Trevor van Riemsdyk will likely return to the press box due to Edmundson's return.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Out Thursday

    Edmundson (undisclosed) will miss Thursday's contest against St. Louis, per Tom Gulitti of

    Edmundson was regarded as a game-time decision but ultimately didn't join the Capitals for the pregame warmups. He has a goal, three points, 23 hits and 32 blocks in 27 outings in 2023-24. With Edmundson unavailable, Trevor van Riemsdyk is likely to draw into the lineup Thursday.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Questionable for Thursday

    Edmundson (undisclosed) is uncertain to play Thursday against the Blues, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

    Edmundson took the morning skate, but he is considered a game-time call against his former team. Trevor van Riemsdyk seems likely to return to the lineup regardless, but Alexander Alexeyev would also draw in if the 30-year-old is unable to play.

  • Capitals' Joel Edmundson: Dishes helper Saturday

    Edmundson tallied an assist while logging 10:58 of ice time during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

    Edmundson's helper on T.J. Oshie's game-winning goal snapped a nine-game scoring drought. The 30-year-old Edmundson has been getting regular ice time since his recovery from a hand injury sustained during the preseason, but with just two points and a minus-4 rating in 24 appearances, he isn't much of a fantasy asset.
