Fedun signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Stars on Thursday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports. Fedun was a solid depth defender for the Stars this season, picking up 11 points in 54 games while posting a plus-2 rating. The veteran blueliner probably won't draw into Dallas' lineup as frequently in 2019-20, but he could still log 20-to-25 appearances as a rotational piece.
Fedun (personal) is back in Dallas following a death in the family and will suit up versus Colorado on Thursday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports. Fedun is averaging a mere 11:35 of ice time in his previous eight games, but has still managed to notch a trio of points. The Edmonton native will slot into the third pairing, relegating Jamie Oleksiak to the press box, and should be a mainstay in the lineup down the stretch.
Fedun isn't in Tuesday's projected lineup against the Panthers due to a death in the family, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. The Stars' ensuing game will take place against the Avalanche on Thursday, and the five-game homestand will conclude Saturday versus the Penguins. Jamie Oleksiak could emerge from the press box in Fedun's absence.
Fedun has assists in consecutive games and three points in his last 13 appearances. The journeyman blueliner has 10 points in 40 games this season, both of which are career highs for the 30-year-old. However, in his last two games, he has skated under 10 minutes as the sixth defenseman for the Stars. There are other options for the team in Julius Honka and Jamie Oleksiak, but Fedun's recent production may help to keep him in the lineup. He is not a factor in fantasy.
Fedun collected an assist on the game's only goal in a 1-0 victory against Buffalo on Wednesday. Fedun was able to notch his first point of the new year on a Jamie Benn first-period goal. The 30-year-old now sits at two goals and five assists for the campaign following the helper Wednesday. With those numbers, Fedun offers very limited fantasy value.
