The Pittsburgh Penguins announced Taylor Fedun has been sent down to the AHL. The 34-year-old defenseman was called up earlier this month with the Penguins dealing with several injuries on the blue line. It was his first stint in the NHL since the 2019-20 season when he was a member of the Dallas Stars organization.
Fedun suited up for four games with the Penguins between March 20-25. He did not register any points, but kept his plus-minus even while averaging just over 11 minutes per game and fired five shots on goal. This was during some pivotal games for the Penguins who are hanging on to the final wildcard spot in the Eastern Conference.
Fedun is a respected veteran and leader for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins where he serves as the team’s captain. He has played 53 games in the AHL this season, recording two goals and ten points while playing a dependable, physical, defensive role.
