2008-09: Viedensky proved to be a valuable member of the Prince George Cougars (WHL). The lanky defender put up 40 points in his first season with the Cougars. His plus/minus numbers left something to be desired as he was a -13 on the year. Viedensky was drafted in the 7th round, 189th overall by the San Jose Sharks (NHL).
2009-10: Viedensky’s second season in the WHL was split between the Prince George Cougars (WHL) and the Saskatoon Blades (WHL). The blossoming defender saw improvements in all aspects of his game, improving his point totals to 59 and turning his -13 in 2008-2009 into a +17. Viedensky will play his overage year with the Saskatoon Blades. In the playoffs Viedensky went point-per-game, picking up 10 points in 10 games.
2010-11: Viedensky was the leading scorer for Saskatoon as a 20-year-old as the Blades finished with the WHL's best record. In his first full season with the Blades, he scored 36 goals with 52 assists despite missing nine games throughout the year with nagging injuries and was +60 (second only to defenseman Stefan Elliott's +62 on the Blades). In 10 playoff games Viedensky scored 1 goal with 5 assists and was +1 with 4 PMs. The Blades were swept by eventual WHL champion Kootenay in the second round.
2011-12: In his first season in the AHL, Viedensky didn't follow-up on his excellent final year at the junior level and the big centerman started his year injured while struggling at times to stay in the line-up. He scored five goals along with six assists and a minus five rating in 56 games.
Viedensky has a good work ethic, solid defensive play and excels at killing penalties but needs to improve in the offensive zone and drive harder to the net using his big frame to score in the dirty areas of the ice. He has to show more upside to his offensive game in order to make the NHL as a checking role player in the bottom six forwards.
Viedensky will probably be assigned to the AHL with Worcester but could find himself in the ECHL if he doesn't show more improvement in his overall game to start the upcoming season.
