Eric Fehr has done a very good job at center for the Washington Capitals.
He was especially impressive against Pittsburgh on Wednesday when he won 77 percent of his 22 faceoffs and was tasked with helping the Caps shutdown Sidney Crosby. "I give a lot of credit, just to Fehr's line that frustrated Sid's line there," coach Barry Trotz said. "He did a really good job." Fehr also scored his 15th goal of the season in the contest.

Eric Fehr will be in the lineup on Saturday when the Capitals take on the Lightning.

The move will mean one of Tom Wilson, Liam O’Brien, Michael Latta or Jay Beagle will be a healthy scratch. Stay tuned.

Eric Fehr was on the first line in practice on Friday, alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.

Coach Barry Trotz switched up his line combinations with Troy Brouwer, who was on the first line, moving down to the second unit with Andre Burakovky and Marcus Johansson while Evgeny Kuznetsov moved from the fourth line to the third line to center with Jason Chimera and Jay Beagle.Joel Ward dropped to the fourth line alongside Michael Latta and Liam O’Brien. Fehr is unlikely to stay there long-term and won't see power play time with Ovie and Backstrom, even if he does stay on the first line.

Coach Barry Trotz is playing right winger Eric Fehr everywhere.

Fehr has seen time on the first line as well as a bottom six forward at training camp thus far. "He's sort of that utility guy, you move him all over the place but that doesn't mean he’s not going to be sort of that high-end guy on the first line or he’s going to be the third-line centerman," Trotz said. "I think we're trying to sort that out. We're going to throw him in another spot tomorrow. Each game, I'm trying to put another piece in and take a look at it. We've got to lock things down those last four games, just load it up." Fehr could get 35-40 points on the top line but half of that if he is a bottom six forward.

Eric Fehr is looking to start the season on the top line with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.

The Capitals are looking to move Ovechkin back to the left wing and if this works out then Fehr, a right winger, has the early lead at the top job on the first line. Ovechkin will likely move around some this season but Fehr will get a definite boost to his fantasy value if he remains on the top line. Be aware that he is not likely to see much time on the power play. Look for a 35-40 point season from Fehr if he plays enough with Backstrom and Ovechkin.
