Taylor fedun

PITTSBURGH (93.7 the Fan) NHL free agency rages on, and the Pittsburgh Penguins have made another signing to bolster their depth on the blue line.

Taylor Fedun has signed a one-year two-way contract with the Penguins with $750,000.

Fedun, who just turned 33 in early June, has jumped around to multiple teams across the NHL most recently playing with the Dallas Stars.

A veteran of 127 career NHL games, Fedun holds a total of eight goals and 27 assists for 35 points.

Fedun will likely spend most, if not all, of the season in the AHL with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

As a right shot defender, he is filling a much needed hole with WBS as they lost multiple right handed defensemen.
