Flyers Acquire Winger Fedoruk
PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ The Philadelphia Flyers acquired winger Todd Fedoruk on Monday from the Anaheim Ducks for a fourth-round pick in the 2007 draft and future considerations.
It is Fedoruk’s second stint with the Flyers. He played four seasons with them before being traded in 2005. He has 14 career goals and 54 points in 306 games.
``It’s great. I look forward to playing with those guys,″ Fedoruk said.
Fedoruk has three assists in 10 games. It was the first major deal made by Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren since he took over for Bob Clarke last month.
``He has that emotion, intensity, determination and leadership that we look for in a player,″ Holmgren said. ``He is still a young player and he is a player that has always been known for his toughness and the willingness to aid his teammates.″
Fedoruk has missed the last eight games recovering from facial injuries suffered against Minnesota on Oct. 27. Last season, Fedoruk had four goals and 19 assists for 23 points and 174 penalty minutes in 76 regular season games for Anaheim.
``It’s the same stuff as before. I pride myself on sticking up for my teammates,″ he said.
