And if Edin stands highest on the podium in Russia next February, his finances will likely improve further given the endorsement opportunities a gold medal brings.
Sweden is the two-time defending champion among the women, but its men are seeking a maiden Olympic triumph.
"There's not a lot of money in this sport but you can still go full time if you're reaching towards the Olympics and you get funding from the Olympic association and stuff like that," said Edin. "For us it's been full-time the last few years and building up to the Olympics."
Although Edin's rise has been quick, it hasn't been without struggles.
He had back surgery in 2010 after being diagnosed with multiple herniated discs, and needed another operation after the problem flared up on the eve of the 2012 world championships in Switzerland.
He shared skip duties with Sebastian Kraupp yet amid the turmoil Sweden grabbed bronze in a tense win over Scandinavian rival Norway.
"It's been a long struggle for the whole team and for (Edin) especially," Kraupp told reporters.
Edin now says of the back issues: "I'm feeling better."
His composure has gotten better, too, although it remains a work in progress.
He openly admits to having acted like tennis bad boy John McEnroe in the past, losing his cool when things weren't going his way.
"Over the years I've calmed down quite a bit and try to be as good as I can towards all the people around me on the curling sheet or curling rink because I think it's in the interest of the sport -- like golf, where you show respect to one another," said Edin.
"Even if you want to win you don't want to show that disrespect to the other people around you so I try to calm myself down. But if we're losing in a bad way I definitely (have a) temper."
However, Edin doesn't often lose in a bad way nowadays.
