Player Bio

Pedersen made the most of his one-year contract extension for 2017, playing 15 matches in one of his best seasons at AFL level. The versatile big man benefited greatly from the absence of Max Gawn, and to a lesser extent Jake Spencer, being thrust into a ruck role despite being undersized. Although Gawn was a big loss for the Demons, Pedersen was influential with his ability to play as extra follower and made Melbourne less predictable as a result. Re-signed until the end of 2018.
