The Buffalo Sabres have assigned defenseman Taylor Fedun to the Americans Rochester (AHL), the team announced earlier today. The 29-year old defenseman has played seven games in the NHL this season, registering one point and two penalty minutes. 

Fedun was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Edmonton Oilers organization in 2012. He played 46 games in the NHL with the Oilers, the San Jose Sharks, the Vancouver Canucks and the Sabres, registering 15 points and 22 penalty minutes. 

At the AHL level, the Edmonton, Alberta native produced 165 points in 324 games played (regular season and playoffs included). 

The Sabres are currently eight in the Atlantic division with a record of 10-21-9. They are facing the Winnipeg Jets tonight, who own a record of 23-11-7, good for the second position in the Central division. Chad Johnson is expected to get the start for Buffalo, and he will be facing Connor Hellebuyck.

You probably forgot about it, but Fedun sustained a terrible injury while he was participating in a pre-season game during training camp back in 2011. On that sequence, Fedun fractured his right femur.
