Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced today that the team has acquired defenseman Joel Edmundson from the Carolina Hurricanes, in return for a fifth-round pick in 2020. Edmundson is set to become a free agent in October, unless Montreal signs him before then. In the post-season, Edmundson added one goal in four games for the 'Canes, with his average ice-time jumping to 23:41.

The 27-year-old brings an element of size (6-foot-4, 215 pounds) and physicality (his 118 hits led all Hurricanes blue-liners in 2019-20). Over 337 National Hockey League games, he's scored 20 goals and 52 assists. He also registered a career-high 20 points in 68 games this past season.

Godfall was announced back at The Game Awards in 2019, and the game's trailers have managed to build a lot of hype around it. It also features a sneak peek at the Aegishorn Valorplate, one of the game's armor sets.

Edmundson won a Stanley Cup with the St. Louis Blues in 2018-19, posting seven points through 22 post-season tilts, while averaging 16:32 minutes per night. After being delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the draft will be held on October 6 and 7.
