Although Montreal Canadiens linebacker Joel Edmondson will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2024 and not 2023, several NHL teams will be interested in his services in light of the trade deadline.
“It will normally be exchanged by the deal deadline,” Renaud Lavoie said on Monday. jc. There are at least 5-6 teams currently interested in his services.
Since his first game of the campaign, on November 3, Edmondson has stopped 100 shots in 34 games, which is first in the NHL in that season over the span.
His closest chaser is Vegas Golden Knights defender Alex Martinez with 90 blocked shots.
“When you see really important statistics like this, it’s very reassuring to potential buyers,” added Lavoie.
Long absence for Jake Evans?
Canadian forward Jake Evans went down in Saturday’s game against the New York Islanders, and his absence could be too long.
“If we’re talking about at least six weeks, I don’t think anyone is wrong,” said Lavoie, adding that we should know more in the coming days.
During his column, Renaud Lavoie also spoke about Matthew Boldy’s contract as the groundwork for Cole Caufield’s next contract.
