Fehr not cleared

Injured right wing Eric Fehr, trying to rebound from surgeries on both shoulders, underwent another physical but was not cleared for full-contact practice.

“I got really close this time. It was definitely an improvement from the last time a week earlier,” he said. “I’m definitely getting close and feeling stronger on the ice and getting into a few more drills. Hopefully, within the next couple days I can give it another try.”

Opening night might not be feasible, but Fehr said he was pushing to return sometime in early October.
