    Yeah, he'll get drafted. Big, tough and physical blueliner. Ok skater and can make a pass coming out of the zone. I might like him a bit more than others, but I still think he has a solid future as a prospect.

    I saw him as a 2nd rounder in a mock draft on here.

    Not bad numbers, skates, and is physical.

    I dont see him as a 2nd rounder, but 5-7 is a possibility.

    how does he compare to Ponich?

    Sounds like he's a better hockey player, perhaps not as big

    Any reason why Edmundson isn't as good a prospect as fellow Moose Jaw Warrior tough as nails d-man Dylan McIlrath?

    Little McIlrath

    I hear he is rising up the draft charts of late

    Rising, yes. From 69 (mid) to 33 (final) CSS rank. Little, yes again. His weight is relatively light to his height, 6' 4" 191 lbs. The good news, he's grown as a two-way d-man (scored twice as many points in the second half of the season vs the first half) and as a fighter (vs Siemens & vs Kessey), without yet having filled out physically.

    I imagine at the age of 22 he'll be an imposing 6'4" 220 lbs blueliner, and through that lense I forsee him perhaps even surpassing in potential the physically mature McIlrath of today.

    Joel Edmundson - Defensmen - WHL Moose Jaw

    Can anyone who has seen him play extensively give a scouting report? He's got great size at 6'4 1/2, 193. How is his skating? Foot speed? Checking? Stick work? Point shot? Offensive upside?

    I only saw him 3-4 times live this year......not enough to give an honest/educated opinion.

    I like his size and his skating for a guy that big, but I don't necessarily see what some other organizations see in him. I don't think he should be a 2nd round pick like some people have him ranked as.

    He's only an ok puck mover, he doesn't have a great shot or the ability to get that shot off in time to be dangerous. He's just safe...a big body with good reach. I don't see the upside that some others do.

    Yes, I know that a guy that big that can skate pretty well is a commodity at the NHL level, but he just doesn't do a ton for me.

    Joel Edmundson

    Edmundson is a big, tall and tough stay at home defenseman. He draws some comparison to Dylan Mcilrath, what do people on here think of him who have seen him play?

    All I have really seen are some fight videos, and he is one tough kid for sure.

    Second round pick worthy, 3rd round or what? Any NHLer comparisons?

    Of the 100+ CSS ranked Combine participants, Edmundson had the widest wingspan of any of the skaters, an asset he utilizes fully in his fights.
