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.

Taylor Fedun scored a goal in Edmonton's 4-2 defeat on Thursday.

Fedun now has two goals in as many games this season. "I thought he was solid again," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. "It was funny, because he was getting on the bus to come over here and I was already sitting on it and I was joking with him and said 'No one said you can't score on your second game, too.' He said to me, 'Duly noted' and kept walking. Good on him."

Taylor Fedun scored in his first career NHL game on Tuesday.

"It was awesome to just get out there and to ultimately get the first one out of the way early was ... it happened so fast, I didn't really know what to do. I don't think I processed it well," Fedun said. The 25-year-old defenseman has a goal and four points in 12 AHL contests this season.

Oilers blueliner Taylor Fedun has enjoyed an impressive start to his 2012-13 AHL season.

Playing with the Oklahoma City Barons, Fedun has only notched six points in 16 games, but he's been turning heads thanks to his agile skating and swift passing. Advanced stats also show that Fedun has generated many more offensive scoring opportunities than he has allowed defensively. The NHL could be the next stop in his ascent through the ranks, though he doesn't profile as a high-scoring player with the Oilers.

Taylor Fedun, who broke his femur when racing for the puck during an icing call, wholly backs the new hybrid icing rule currently being tested in the AHL.

A linesman can call icing if the defenseman is ahead of the opposition player at the face off dot. "I’ve been in the races, but things happen so fast out there. You don’t have time to worry about the ifs. If I ever get in a position where I’m thinking (about falling into the boards again) and that takes an extra half-second, that’s a detriment," Fedun said. "I’ve played a full season with hybrid icing in college. It’s a good example of keeping the positives of touch-icing where a forward can win a race and keep a play going. But at the same time, you put the players’ safety at the forefront and you take out the dangerous collisions five or 10 feet from the boards."

Taylor Fedun is ready to resume playing in the minors with Oklahoma City this season after he suffered a broken femur last year during an exhibition contest against Minnesota.

He didn't play at all in 2011-12 and the year before that he was skating in his fourth campaign with Princeton University. He was hurt on an icing call when he was bumped while chasing down a puck. "I'm very comfortable on the ice right now," said Fedun. "No twinges at all (with his leg). People ask me about it, but I don't think about it. If I have a race for the puck, maybe I'll think about it then."

Taylor Fedun (broken femur) skated with his teammates for the first time Sunday since his horrific injury in training camp.

Fedun suffered the injury when he was racing for the puck during an icing call and then Wild player, Eric Nystrom knocked him awkwardly into the boards during a pre-season game September 30, 2011. It is good news that he is skating with the hope that he could return by the end of season and if not, then be healthy by training camp.

Taylor Fedun (broken femur) skated before practice Thursday.

Fedun suffered the injury when he was racing for the puck during an icing call and then Wild player, Eric Nystrom knocked him awkwardly into the boards during a pre-season game September 30, 2011. There is no timetable for his return and he will likely need to play in the minors if he can return this season.

Taylor Fedun (femur) was released from a Minnesota hospital on Friday and returned home to Edmonton.

Fedun suffered a broken right femur when he was racing for the puck on an icing call and the Wild's Eric Nystrom knocked him awkwardly into the boards. "He was on his feet the other day, with a walker," defenseman Theo Peckham said. "If there’s a guy who can come back from this, with no problems, it's him." Fedun is not expected to return this season, but the former Princeton Tiger will hopefully be back at training camp next season.

Taylor Fedun (femur) isn't close to being released from the hospital.

Fedun shattered the bone when he crashed into the end boards while trying to get an icing call during a preseason game in Minnesota. Edmonton is scheduled to play in Minnesota on October 13th and they will probably visit him if he hasn't been released from the hospital already. Fedun isn't expected to play in 2011-12 and his injury has brought renewed focus to the NHL's current rules regarding icing calls.
