RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
