Fedun had two assists in the deciding third game
of Princeton's ECAC Hockey quarterfinal series
win over Yale.
Key Statistics: Tiger
defenseman Taylor Fedun contributed four goals and 14
points while playing 32 games for Princeton during his
freshman year. He logged lots of minutes and had the
team's best plus-minus rating, at plus-15.
What He Does: There are
two sides to Fedun's game, and when looking at both
of them, a complete player comes into view. With the
puck, Fedun is patient and skilled, and uses great vision
to set up teammates or to move the puck up the ice.
Without the puck, Fedun brings snarl and tenacity to
the game. His toughness in the defensive end of the
rink gives opposing forwards fits.
The Bigger Picture: Fedun
was paired for most of the end of the season with Mike
Moore, Princeton's senior captain and leader on the
blueline. Even as a sophomore, Fedun will inherit some
of Moore's responsibilities simply because of his talent
level. Princeton coach Guy Gadowsky said it's not the
age or experience of a player that determines leadership,
but that a team's best players need to be the leaders
every day. Fedun is certainly one of those for the Tigers.
Princeton head coach Guy Gadowsky
on what makes Fedun special: "He is a
very intelligent guy with the puck, and you don't usually
find those gifted, talented offensive players mixed
deceptively with a tough, tough guy to play against
when he doesn't have the puck."
