Observations:

 

March 2014 – Fedun has had an excellent season for the Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL as an assistant captain. With the feeble defense in Edmonton, the team needs to take a serious look as letting him break in with the squad. It doesn’t help the Oilers management’s case when he is a UFA going into this off season and likely several teams willing to give him a one way contract and a roster spot. He will unlikely be a regular on the score sheet as he does not command powerplay minutes, but his production would be boosted if the young Oiler forwards become what is expected of them and he could be good for modest even-strength production. Jason Banks

 

March 2013 - A decent two-way game and a reliable presence at the AHL level has given Fedun a leg up on other d-men in the system. Rarely caught out of position. Boasts underrated offensive acumen. Not high, just 'underrated'. Dobber

 

November 2012 – Fedun signed a two-year contract in March 2011 with the Oilers after solid career in the NCAA ranks with Princeton (ECAC Hockey) as captained and lead team in points as a senior. Unfortunately he missed all last season after suffering a broken femur in the pre-season with a nasty collision with the end boards. He is now back on the blades and skating regularly in the AHL with Oklahoma City. He is undersized although with his keen hockey sense, mobility, and quickness he will challenge for a roster spot possibly with the parent club as well. Russ Bitely

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

 

Fedun lacks the size but has the skill to be in the second defensive pairing in the NHL. Upside could surprise in that 25-point range, but not a potential PIM player.
