Reports: Fehr to return to Capitals

According to the Washington Times, the Washington Capitals will be inviting a familiar face to their training camp.

Multiple D.C.-area outlets are reporting that forward Eric Fehr will participate in this year's Capitals training camp and that the team intends on signing him to a pro-rated, one-year contract once he passes his physical.

It should be a joyous reunion for Fehr, who played the first 230 games of his NHL career in Washington, an eventful tenure that included a two-goal performance in the team's 3-1 win against Pittsburgh at the 2011 Winter Classic. Fehr registered 46 goals and 93 points with Washington before being traded to his hometown Winnipeg Jets in 2011. In an injury-shortened 2011-12 season, Fehr scored two goals and added one assist in 35 games.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
