Some sad news to report in the Habs world on Saturday.

Reports indicate that Joel Edmundson’s father has passed away.

As many know his father has been battling cancer over the last couple of years and it’s part of the reason he signed with Montreal.

Before the start of this season things started to get worse and Edmundson was granted a leave of absence to be with his father. 

Unfortunately on Friday his father passed away.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Edmundson family at this tough time.
