Fedotenko Earns His Keep

After his great play during the pre-season, Rusland Fedotenko has earned a spot on the New York Rangers’ roster for the 2010-11 season.

Here is part of the press release from the organization:

Fedotenko, 31, skated in five pre-season contests with the Rangers, registering one goal and six assists for seven points, along with two penalty minutes and a plus-five rating.  Fedotenko led the team in assists, points and plus/minus rating, and tied for second on the club with 11 shots.  His six assists are also tied for sixth in the league, while his seven points are tied for 11th in the NHL.

Fedotenko is a two-time Stanley Cup Champion, having helped Tampa Bay capture the title in 2003-04 and Pittsburgh in 2008-09.  He established a post-season career-high with 12 goals during the 2004 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and tied for second in the NHL in goals and game-winning goals (three), and ninth in the league with 14 points in 22 playoff contests.

Good job Fedotenko! I never got near the vitriol spit by Penguins fans this last season about his play. He had a bad season, but I didn’t see him “quit” or “stop trying” like most others say. He’ll be a good addition for the Rangers, and at a salary less than Derek Boogaard of course!
