Question of the Day
Fehr spent parts of six seasons in Washington before a 2011 trade to the Winnipeg Jets. His and the team’s hope is that those injury-plagued days are over.
“We talked about maybe adding a little more depth at forward. And we know this player, he’s still a young player,” McPhee said. “Looks like he’s gotten over the surgeries and the rehab and he also was playing really well in Finland. And so we thought it’d be a nice addition.”
“Last year, I felt like I was in survival mode a little bit, just trying to get through every game,” Fehr said. “Now I’m feeling a lot better. I’m happy to be playing hockey, and it feels a lot better on the ice when you’re not in pain all the time.”
• Defenseman Tom Poti, who hasn’t played in two years because of a groin injury and fractured pelvis, passed his physical and then was assigned by the Caps to the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League on a conditioning assignment. The 35-year-old can be there for up to 14 days before the Caps must bring him back.
• A settlement with ex-Caps forward Eric Belanger was part of the new collective bargaining agreement, ending a grievance over moving expenses from 2010. McPhee said Belanger moved his family to Washington before a contract was signed.
