2018 Fantasy Outlook
For the second straight season, Fedun split the season between the minor leagues and the Sabres, appearing in seven games for the big club as an injury fill-in and 45 games for AHL Rochester. Fedun can contribute at both ends of the ice and has some value on a team that doesn't have a lot of right-hand defensemen, but he lacks the ability to be a full-time NHL regular. Fedun is in the final year of his contract heading into 2018-19 and doesn't have a long-term future with the team beyond a depth role. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Sabres in July of 2017.

Fedun (personal) is back in Dallas following a death in the family and will suit up versus Colorado on Thursday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Fedun is averaging a mere 11:35 of ice time in his previous eight games, but has still managed to notch a trio of points. The Edmonton native will slot into the third pairing, relegating Jamie Oleksiak to the press box, and should be a mainstay in the lineup down the stretch.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
2012
Thanks to a blue line ravaged by injuries, Fedun appeared in 27 games for the Sabres and notched seven assists. The minor league journeyman looked very good in limited action with the Sabres, but remains a depth defenseman at best. His ability to move the puck makes him an ideal short-term replacement for second unit power plays, but with the Sabres' logjam on defense will likely split the season between the AHL and NHL again.
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.
