RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Fedun is a young forward who has shown a lot of promise. He made his NHL debut during the 2013-14 season with the Oilers, scoring two goals in four games. He spent the rest of the season with the Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL, where he collected ten goals and 28 assists through 65 games. Fedun will provide depth for the Sharks' AHL team, but he doesn't figure into their NHL plan in any prominent way, if at all. His fantasy relevance is limited.
Fedun started skating again earlier this year after a leg injury. Without that injury, he might've had a chance to make the team last camp as the Oilers needed every defender they can get. And they still do. This season, however, he is ticketed for the AHL as he will have to convince the team he is at full strength before given a shot at the NHL level.
