Brent Fedyk

Brent Fedyk was an interesting case. He was a bonafide scorer in junior (hence his 8th overall draft selection in 1985) and in the minor leagues (he scored a hat trick in the Calder Cup clinching game in 1989). He had some great line-mates in the NHL - Steve Yzerman in Detroit, Joe Nieuwendyk in Dallas and most notably as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers' Crazy Eights Line with Eric Lindros and Mark Recchi.

Yet for all his 470 NHL games Fedyk never really cemented himself as a scorer in the NHL. He had limited skating skills. He drove to the net as hard as average frame would allow him, but he failed to convert with any great regularity. Otherwise he was a reluctant physical player. He was a diligent defensive forward.

In his career Brent Fedyk scored 97 goals and 112 assists.
