The winger put up 32 goals and 42 assists for 74 points in 65 games during the 2022-23 campaign and finished with four goals and eight assists in 19 playoff games with Winnipeg as their quest for a WHL Championship fell short against the Seattle Thunderbirds.

Pederson wasn’t drafted but that doesn’t mean much as there are plenty of players in the NHL today who were overlooked when they were eligible. He will get his first shot in Providence with the AHL Bruins on a two-year deal the team announced today. And here is a good read on how the NHL Bruins give these types of players a shot to develop.

He ended his time in the WHL with 94 goals and 111 assists for 205 points in 237 regular season games. He also had 13 goals and 19 assists for 32 points in 33 career playoff games.
