Hutton injured, Canucks recall Fedun

Dec 19 2017, 6:38 pm

With Ben Hutton injured, the Canucks have turned to their AHL affiliate once again for help. This time Taylor Fedun is getting the call.

Rookie defenceman Ben Hutton has surprised everyone this year and losing him is far from insignificant. Hutton is second to only Alex Edler for points among Canucks defenceman. He’s out with an undisclosed injury, so we don’t know how long he’ll be out for.

Fedun is a 27-year-old, right-shot defenceman with 11 NHL regular season games on his resume. He has 2 goals and 4 assists in 14 games with the Utica Comets this season.
