“Definitely a little weight off my shoulders,” Fehr said Friday. “It definitely feels good to score a goal, but not only that, besides the goal I thought I played a pretty good game. I did a few better things: playing more physical and strong in the D-zone. Those are the things I’m looking at and hope I can build on.”
But the same shoulder injuries that have hampered his career have limited him to 34 games so far this season. He has just three points and a minus-5 rating.
“It’s been a tough year. Definitely not the way I drew it up,” Fehr said. “You’ve just got to deal with the cards you have. My shoulder wasn’t great at the start of the season. It’s coming around now. I’m starting to feel a lot better, a lot stronger. Hopefully, I can get back to the game I want to play.”
And though coaches haven’t necessarily told the winger to be more physical, he understands some of that is necessary to make an impact.
“With the line I’m on, with the matchups we’re going to have, it’s going to be important to play physical and make it tough for the guys we’re playing against,” Fehr said.
