On Tuesday morning, the St. Louis Blues announced that they re-signed restricted free agent defenseman Joel Edmundson, giving him a 1-year, $3 million deal. The deal sees the two sides avoid an arbitration hearing, which was scheduled to go on Wednesday.
The 25-year old is right on the brink of being a hockey pool worthy defenseman, finishing with 7 goals and 17 points in 69 games last season, ranking 112th among all defensemen. With a few more games under his belt on the season, he could have certainly lifted his way up into the top 100.
With some of the moves the Blues have made this summer, there's a chance that we could see their depth improve their numbers, so they could be ones to keep an eye out for at the draft.
