News: Edler collected a pair of assists in Sunday's preseason finale win over the Oilers.
Impact: It was the first two points of the preseason for Edler, who had been held off the scoresheet in the team's previous three games. The 29-year-old recorded 12 shots on goal in the 2015 preseason and is coming off an eight-goal, 31-point season in 2014-15. Edler may never duplicate the success of his 49-point campaign in 2011-12, but he's a top pairing defenseman who racks up solid PIM totals, fires lots of pucks on net and has scored five power-play goals in five of his last six full seasons. If you lower your expectations a tad, Edler could be a very productive fantasy asset in 2015-16.
