TODD FEDORUK CLAIMED OFF RE-ENTRY WAIVERS BY MINNESOTA WILD
FRISCO, Tex. – The Dallas Stars announced today that left wing Todd Fedoruk has been claimed off re-entry waivers by the Minnesota Wild. The Stars and Wild will split Fedoruk’s salary (signed one-year deal for $875,000 in off-season) for the remainder of the 2007-08 season.
Fedoruk, 28, was placed on re-entry waivers by the Stars on Wednesday after appearing in 11 games with Dallas this season. In 11 games, he posted two assists and 33 penalty minutes.
The 6-2, 241-pound left wing was originally drafted by the Flyers in the seventh round (164th overall) in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. Over parts of seven NHL seasons, Fedoruk has appeared in 365 career games and collected 17 goals and 50 assists for 67 points with 818 penalty minutes. In 19 career playoff games, he is scoreless with 38 penalty minutes.
Acquired by Anaheim from Philadelphia on July 29, 2005 in exchange for a second round draft pick in 2005, Fedoruk produced career-highs in goals (4), assists (19), points (23), penalty minutes (174) and plus/minus (+6) in 2005-06 with the Ducks. A member of the Philadelphia Phantoms’ AHL Calder Cup Championship team in 2005, he played in 16 playoff games, earning four points (2-2-4) with 33 penalty minutes.
