A member of the Crazy Eights line along with Eric Lindros and Mark Recchi, left winger Brent Fedyk wore number 18 during his three-plus season tenure with the team. Born March 8, 1967 in Yorktown, Sask. The Flyers acquired the former Detroit first-round pick (1985, eighth overall) in an Oct. 1, 1992 trade for a 1994 third-round pick (Charles Paquette).

Fedyk went on to post back-to-back 20-goal seasons as the third member of the Flyers' top line, while also seeing time on the second line with Rod Brind'Amour. Over time, Fedyk's role gradually decreased after Terry Murray became the Flyers' head coach. On Dec. 13, 1995, the Flyers traded Fedyk to the Dallas Stars for Trent Klatt.

For his Flyers' career, Fedyk appeared in 200 regular season games. He scored 59 goals (16 on the power play, one shorthanded, five game-winners), added 65 assists for a total of 124 points and posted 160 penalty minutes. During the 1995 playoffs, he dressed in each of the first nine games (two goals, four points). A chip fracture in the first vertebrae of his neck kept Fedyk out of the Eastern Conference Final against the New Jersey Devils.

After being traded to the Stars, Fedyk scored 10 goals and 19 points in 41 games, making the 1995-96 season the third 20-goal NHL season of his career. Later, Fedyk spent a season with the New York Rangers. He also spent latter-career stints in the International Hockey League and Germany's DEL. Overall, Fedyk played 470 regular season games in the NHL (97 goals, 209 points) and 16 playoff games (three goals, five points).
