2018 Fantasy Outlook
Edmundson has impressed as a complement to captain Alex Pietrangelo on the team's top pairing, but his stat line hasn't followed. The brawny blueliner generated six goals and two helpers in the first 21 games of 2017-18, but his pace slowed as the season extended and he finished with under 20 points (17) for the third third straight season. He also upped his shot count to 124 and battled defensively with 116 hits and 150 blocked shots in 69 games. However, for three years running, Edmundson's physical play has cost him at least 13 games due to injury. With respect to cap concerns, Edmundson was given a one-year, $3 million bridge deal and will need to produce at a high level all season to get a coveted, high-dollar contract after the 2018-19 campaign.

Helpers in consecutive games
DSt. Louis Blues
April 14, 2019
Edmundson racked up an assist, four hits and three blocked shots in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Jets in Game 3.
ANALYSIS
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.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2011
Edmundson was relatively quiet during the 2016-17 regular season, scoring just three goals coupled with 12 assists and a plus-11 rating while averaging less than 18 minutes of ice time. Then April rolled around, and things seemed to change. He scored a goal in each of the first two playoff games, ultimately ending tied with Vladimir Tarasenko for third on the club in playoff points with six. That performance was obviously unprecedented for Edmundson at the pro level, but it makes the 24-year-old a player worth monitoring this season. Edmundson should enjoy a steady top-four role in 2017-18, and if he can carry over that playoff outburst, he might win some power-play time and thus some fantasy value in deeper formats.
Edmundson is a big, tough mutha (6-foot-5, 210 pounds) who plays with an ugly snarl. His goalies love his workman-line crease clearing; opposing forwards shudder at the thought of coming down his wing. The Blues drafted him in 2011 with an eye to him one day filling Barret Jackman's boots and his time has come. You can count on him for hits and PIM, but not much else.
Edmundson really began to emerge over the course of the 2010-11 season, becoming a top-four defender for Moose Jaw in the Western Hockey League. He can play a two-way game and the Blues are anxious to see how he develops now that he's committed to hockey and begins to see what's out there for him as a hockey player.
