Eric Fehr (born September 7, 1985) is a Canadian ice hockey right winger who plays for the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League.

Playing career[edit]

Fehr was a first-round draft pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals, chosen 18th overall.

Fehr played 11 games with the Capitals in the 2005–06 NHL season; he went scoreless, with 2 penalty minutes and an even plus/minus rating. He spent the rest of the season with the Hershey Bears and returned to Hershey to start the 2006–07 AHL season. He had a brief callup to the Capitals early in the 2006–07 season and was recalled again in late January. His first game back with the Capitals came on January 27, 2007; Fehr scored his first NHL goal, which would be the game-winner in the Capitals' 7–3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.[1]

Fehr recovered from his herniated disc and was called up to the Washington Capitals on February 4, 2008.[2]

On July 8, 2011, Fehr was traded to the Winnipeg Jets for a 2012 4th round pick and prospect Danick Paquette.[3] He underwent surgery on his right shoulder in October 2011, and missed much of the season due to recurring problems with the shoulder.[4] Fehr was not given a qualifying offer by the Jets at the end of the 2012 season, making him an unrestricted free agent.[5]

Due to the NHL lockout, he signed his first European contract with HPK in the SM-liiga on October 23, 2012.[6] Fehr returned to the Capitals organization after signing a one-year, $600,000 contract on January 13, 2013.[7]
