Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brent Fedyk
Brent Fedyk was an offensive-minded left-winger who adapted to a two-way role in the NHL to play over 400 games. He played with three different teams but enjoyed his finest years wearing the uniform of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Born in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, Fedyk starred with the local Pats of the WHL for over three seasons before playing briefly with the Seattle Thunderbirds and Portland Winter Hawks. In 1985 he was the Detroit Red Wings' first-round pick, 8th overall, in the NHL Entry Draft. The next season he scored 43 goals for Regina and was named to the WHL East second all-star team.

After graduating from junior, Fedyk spent most of the 1987-90 period in Adirondack, the Wings' top farm club in the AHL. In 1989 he helped the club win the Calder Cup and scored a hat trick in the final game. The young prospect struggled with his confidence in the NHL and had difficulty coping with the tighter checking of the big leagues. He rebounded with 35 points in 1990-91 and spent some time on a productive line with Sergei Fedorov and Johan Garpenlov. Fedyk was merely a role player on the fourth line by the next season as the Wings began to assemble one of the top rosters in the league.

On the eve of the 1992-93 season, he was traded to the Flyers where he proceeded to hit the 20-goal mark two consecutive seasons. Midway through the 1995-96 season Fedyk was sent to the Dallas Stars where played the last 41 games of the season. After two years in the minors he was signed as a free agent by the New York Rangers and played 67 games for them during the 1998-99 season. During this year he was reunited with Adam Graves, a teammate on the 1989 Calder Cup squad. Seeking a new challenge, the veteran forward headed to Germany and played the 1999-2000 schedule with the Kassel Huskies.
