Just spoke to Eric Fehr about this steroids story. He also said he had not heard about the story yet.

“I can honestly say I never heard or seen anything about steroids in our dressing room,” Fehr said. “That’s the first I’ve ever heard of it.”


“Honestly, we have steroid testing — that would be the stupidest thing in the world to take something. That’s not even something I’ve even thought of thinking with any guys on our team.”

There is no testing during the Stanley Cup playoffs, which is something the league may rectify this summer, but for now it is a hole in the system.

“It has never crossed my mind,” Fehr said about using steroids in the postseason. “I don’t know what goes through other people’s heads, but the rules are there for a reason that you can’t take steroids because it’s not safe and it’s not right for the sport.”

Fehr was a first-round pick by the Caps in 2003.

On a lighter note, Fehr is spending his summer in Winnipeg, and he said he will be at Games 1 and 2 of the Calder Cup Finals when the Hershey Bears meet the Manitoba Moose.
