Taylor Fedun (born June 4, 1988) is a Canadian ice hockey defencemen who is currently assigned to the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League, farm team of the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League.[1]

Following his 2010-11 standout season playing Division I hockey with the Princeton Tigers, Fedun was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Edmonton Oilers.[2]

Fedun impressed the Oilers at the 2011 Young Stars Tournament in Penticton, British Columbia, and continued to impress throughout the Oilers' pre-season games, remaining on the roster after other young high performers, such as Tyler Pitlick and Curtis Hamilton, have been sent to the Oilers' AHL farm team, the Oklahoma City Barons.[3]

Injury Edit

When the Oilers' roster sat at 32 players, with 9 more needing to be cut before the team's final roster was made, Fedun fractured his femur during a preseason game versus the Minnesota Wild while attempting to retrieve the puck and force an icing. This is the second time the NHL's icing (ice hockey) policy has led to a fractured femur, with the last injury occurring to former Wild defenseman Kurtis Foster in 2007. Fedun suffered a complex fracture to his right femur, ending his 2011 drive to make the Oiler's roster opening night and possibly his season.[4] On October 7, 2011, Fedun returned to Edmonton after being in the hospital for only one week. He is able to be on his feet with a walker.[5]

Notable awards and honoursEdit

  • ECAC Hockey First Team All-League (2010-11)[6]
