Taylor Fedun has been terrific for the Sharks in training camp and could crack the starting lineup.
Fedun is on a two-way contract and will make $600,000 if he remains in the NHL but will earn only $200,000 if he is sent to the minors. "Liked him again tonight," coach Todd MacLellan said on Friday. "I thought he and Mirco [Mueller] both did some really good things on the rink. Heightened our awareness, both of them, and improved their status amongst the club. The interesting thing [is], we’ll have some decisions to make. We often think of just keeping one, but maybe two of them or three of them can push some veterans out. When I look at the game in Vancouver, we had a couple guys there that were subpar, and if we have to make those changes, we will if the young D continue to play the way they do." Defensemen who could be in trouble are Matt Irwin, Jason Demers and Scott Hannan. Stay tuned.
