Eric Fehr's lower-body injury is expected to keep him sidelined for about a month.

The silver lining is that Fehr's issue isn't believed to be season-ending. He has five goals and seven points in 39 games this season.

Eric Fehr suffered a lower-body injury during Tuesday's contest.

Fehr exited the game roughly halfway through the second period. The Penguins didn't provide any insight into the severity of his injury immediately following the contest. He has five goals and seven points in 39 contests in 2015-16.

Eric Fehr's average ice time per game is down by roughly two minutes from his past two seasons with the Washington Capitals.

He has been getting 12:35 of playing time per match, while skating mostly on the fourth line. "I think he’s fine. I've been reading a lot about that and listening to a lot about that with Eric being on the fourth line. When you look at the makeup of our team and how it's built, there's not a big difference in the back-six forwards," coach Mike Sullivan said. "He's playing critical minutes. That's the way I look at it." He has been logging plenty of time on the penalty kill and sees action against top players. Fehr has seven points in 31 games this year.

Eric Fehr will play against his former Washington teammates on Monday night.

He was still nursing an elbow injury when the Penguins played at Washington on Oct. 28. "It's definitely a game you want to win, that's for sure," Fehr said. "A lot of friends over there, but today's a big game for us. We've got a new coach here, and we're going to try to get on a new roll and start playing a better style of hockey. It starts tonight." He has three goals and five points in 18 games this season.

Eric Fehr scored a beauty for his first goal with the Penguins in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Maple Leafs.

One game, a short handed goal, and two points. Not too shabby for the veteran center, who also contributed two hits and a takeaway during his 12:03 of work. To wit, Fehr skated 3:24 on the penalty kill. Hopefully this is a sign that Fehr is finally healthy again.

With Phil Kessel's return to Toronto drawing the most attention, Pittsburgh Penguins forward Eric Fehr believes that he'll essentially get to go about his business without much spotlight on Saturday.

It looks like Fehr might line up with Sergei Plotnikov and Matt Cullen for what could be a pretty solid fourth forward group. Nothing earth-shattering, but sometimes players can enjoy successful debuts before that adrenaline wears off.

Eric Fehr (elbow) is expected to make his 2015-16 debut on Saturday in Toronto.

The Penguins sent Kevin Porter to the minors on Friday, freeing up a spot for Fehr. He had 19 goals and 33 points for the Capitals last season so he should provide the Penguins will supplemental scoring, something every team needs.

Eric Fehr (elbow) skated with his teammates on Sunday.

He resumed practices recently as he recovers from off-season elbow surgery. Fehr signed the Penguins in the summer after he posted 33 points (19 goals, 14 assists) in 75 games with Washington last season.

Eric Fehr has signed a three-year, $6 million contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Fehr had 19 goals and 33 points in 75 games with the Washington Capitals in 2014-15. There's an opportunity here for Fehr to play alongside either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin, which would obviously be a great boost to him. However, we're hesitant to recommend actually drafting him in standard leagues because Pittsburgh also revealed that he had elbow surgery on June 3. His timetable is four-to-six months, which means that he could be out until December and even when he does return, he might find it difficult to hit his stride after missing a significant chunk of the early season.

Eric Fehr's time in Washington has drawn to an end.

As agent Craig Oster sees it, "At the end of the day, it’s a decision by them as to how they make their best team and based on all the factors it wasn’t going to work out for Eric or the organization and both sides will continue to move on." Fehr has spent all but 35 of his 464-game career with the Capitals, scoring 87 goals and 174 points in that time. Fehr, who will be 30-years-old when the 2015-16 season begins, is coming off a two-year, $3M contract and shouldn't cost his new team much.

Eric Fehr underwent successful elbow surgery on Wednesday.

"According to the doctors who performed the surgery, if rehabilitation goes well, Eric will be healthy for the start of the 2015-16 regular season," said the Washington Capitals in a news release. He sustained a third-degree AC sprain in his shoulder during the postseason and he had an elbow issue during the regular season that caused him to miss a few games. Fehr is eligible for unrestricted free agency in July, but he would like to stay with the Capitals.

Eric Fehr, who is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, wants to remain with the Washington Capitals.

The oft-injured winger is looking for a four year deal but the Capitals may come in with only three at best. "I really enjoy playing here," Fehr said. "Obviously, I have a lot of friends here and I’ve been here a lot of years. I think this is a special group. Obviously, I’d love to be back here, but looking at the amount of guys we have unsigned right now you just don’t know what’s going to happen." Fehr missed 10 of the Capitals 14 post-season games with a shoulder injury.

Eric Fehr (upper body) will return to the lineup for Wednesday’s Game 7 contest with the Rangers.

Fehr was injured in Game 3 in the Capitals opening round matchup versus the Islanders and was sidelined until Wednesday's Game 7 matchup with the Rangers. He will center the fourth line with Tom Wilson and Brooks Laich. Curtis Glenncross will be scratched to make room for Fehr.

Eric Fehr (upper body) doesn't sound like he will be playing on Wednesday night in Game 7.

When he was asked of he would be playing he said, "I wish I could, but I'm not quite ready yet." Coach Barry Trotz referred to Fehr as a "possibility," but it seems unlikely that he will be available.
