"The AC sprain is not a shoulder injury. It’s different, which is good for me," Fehr said. "These are injuries that just go away. They just need time, and unfortunately, come playoff time, you don’t have that."
Fehr was out for 24 days but returned for Game 7 of the second round against the New York Rangers.
A pending unrestricted free agent, Fehr’s status with the Capitals is uncertain but he is confident the injury won’t affect the interest of other NHL teams.
