Fill-in to full-time for Fedun
Taylor Fedun’s 2018-2019 hockey season did not begin on a positive note. He had difficulty cracking the line-up on a regular basis in Rochester, N.Y., the Buffalo Sabres’ AHL affiliate, due to a numbers issue – not because of his play. The 30-year-old has veteran status in the AHL, where teams are limited to dressing a specific number of veterans per contest. There were too many veterans in Rochester, so Fedun played in only five of the club’s first 14 games.
At a time when he found himself wondering if his playing days were coming to an end, along came an opportunity.
