Edur was selected by the Boston Bruins in the third round of the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft, 54th overall, although he made his professional debut in the World Hockey Association with the Cleveland Crusaders rather than in the NHL. After three seasons in the WHA, Edur joined the NHL with the Colorado Rockies.
In July, 1978 at the age of 24, after just two seasons in the NHL (with Colorado and the Pittsburgh Penguins), Edur retired from professional hockey.
Edur was later drafted by the Edmonton Oilers when he left the WHA for the NHL, however, he again declined an opportunity to become involved with professional hockey and became a full-time brother of Jehovah's Witnesses, eventually serving as a branch committee member for the religion's Estonia headquarters.
