Washington acquired the defenseman from the Montreal for a third-round pick (originally acquired from Minnesota) and a seventh-round pick in the 2024 NHL Draft with Montreal retaining 50 percent of Edmundson's contract in the offseason. He is entering his ninth NHL season.

      The Capitals have acquired Joel Edmundson from the Canadiens for a third-round pick and a seventh-round pick.

      Edmundson has one year left on a contract that carries a $3.5M cap hit. Edmundson will solidify the Capitals' third pair and could be a candidate to skate with John Carlson. Edmundson had 13 points (2G / 11A), 112 hits and 149 blocked shots in 61 games with Montreal last season.

      The Canadiens have signed Joel Edmundson to a four-year deal worth $14.0 million ($3.5M AAV).

      Edmundson was acquired from the Hurricanes last week and quickly got a deal done with the Canadiens. This contract includes a 10-team no trade clause and will keep Edmundson in Montreal through the 2024 campaign. The 27-year-old is coming off of a career-high 20 points (7G / 13A) in 68 games.

      The Canadiens have acquired the rights to Joel Edmundson from the Hurricanes in exchange for a 2020 5th round draft pick.

      Edmundson is a pending unrestricted free agent that just wasn't a part of the future of the Hurricanes blueline. In Montreal however, Edmundson will help bolster a left-side that features Ben Chiarot (2 years left), Brett Kulak (2 years), Victor Mete (RFA) and the up-and-coming Alexander Romanov (2 years). It will be interesting to see if Montreal has plans to move any of them to loosen up the logjam. Edmundson doesn't provide a lot offensively but led the Hurricanes' blueline in hits (118) and was tied for second in blocked shots (91) in 2020.
