Eric Fehr might shift from the wing to center while Sidney Crosby is recovering from a concussion.

Fehr spent time serving in both roles at varying points during the 2015-16 campaign. "I'm not going to lie. It's nice when you can get a bit of a comfort level with a position you're at," Fehr said. "But in this game, it's not always easy to do that with injuries and whatever else comes into play. Whatever I'm going to be, I'll be prepared for it. But, hopefully, at some point we can find a bit of a comfort level and just roll with it." He had eight goals and 14 points in 55 games last season.

Eric Fehr netted a goal in Pittsburgh's 3-1 victory over San Jose Monday night.

Jun 7 - 9:15 AM

Eric Fehr could be a possibility to play with Evgeni Malkin and Chris Kunitz on Wednesday night versus San Jose if Bryan Rust remains out with an upper-body injury.

Fehr played with Malkin and Kunitz at times in Round 2 versus the Washington Capitals. Matt Cullen played in that spot on Monday night after Rust was injured, so he might be the more likely choice.

Eric Fehr had an assist in Game 2 versus Tampa Bay on Monday night.

May 17 - 9:26 AM

Eric Fehr is projected to play alongside Evgeni Malkin and Chris Kunitz in Game 6 on Tuesday night.

He returned to the lineup in Game 5, but didn't have a point in 10:13 of ice time. Fehr and the Penguins have two chances to eliminate his former team, the Washington Capitals, with the first opportunity coming on Tuesday night.
May 10 - 5:15 PM

Eric Fehr is officially listed as a game-time decision for game 5 but he is feeling optimistic about being in the lineup.

"I feel great," Fehr said. "I fully expect to be in the lineup tonight." The Penguins can certainly use him on the penalty kill where he scored four times during the course of the regular season. He has also chipped in with two goals in the playoffs, one of them being the game-winning goal in game two vs the Capitals.
May 7 - 6:45 PM

Eric Fehr (undisclosed) feels good to play in Game 5 on Saturday.

Fehr made the announcement after participating in the Penguins' Friday morning skate. Pittsburgh was missing him in Game 4 on Wednesday. He has two goals and no assists in eight playoff contests.
May 6 - 12:44 PM

Eric Fehr was seen walking around Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center in a suit while teammates were commencing warm up activities

Fehr missed the morning skate on Wednesday and was a game-time decision in any case. Having not dressed yet is a good sign he won't be playing in Game 4.
May 4 - 7:26 PM

Eric Fehr did not take part in the morning skate and will be a game-time decision on Wednesday night.

If he is unable to play then Oscar Sundqvist will probably dress in his place. It's unclear what is ailing Fehr.
May 4 - 1:16 PM

Eric Fehr netted the game-winning goal in Pittsburgh's 2-1 victory against Washington on Saturday.

Carl Hagelin accounted for the Penguins' other marker. He now has two goals and four points in his last three games. Nick Bonino, Chris Kunitz, and Evgeni Malkin each recorded an assist in Game 2.
Apr 30 - 11:48 PM

Eric Fehr found the back of the net in Pittsburgh's 5-0 win against the Rangers in Game 4 on Thursday.

It was Fehr's first point of the 2016 playoffs. He has six goals and seven points in 41 career postseason contests.
Apr 22 - 11:10 AM

Eric Fehr skated on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Conor Sheary during Monday's practice.

"It's exciting," Fehr said. "Geno is one of the more dynamic players in the world. You dream about being able to play with a guy like that, especially around playoff time where his game just elevates." Malkin and Sheary started Game 2 on a line with Bryan Rust, but Rust was often replaced by Sidney Crosby. Keep that in mind as even if Fehr starts Game 3 on Tuesday as a member of the Malkin line, it might not last the entire contest.
Apr 19 - 9:30 AM

Eric Fehr led the Penguins with four shorthanded goals this season.

Fehr missed the start of the season with an elbow injury and managed eight goals and 14 points in 55 games. Not great but he has some fantasy value if your pool includes shorthanded goals.
Apr 10 - 11:52 AM

Eric Fehr scored twice for the Penguins in their 6-2 win against the Flyers on Sunday evening.

He scored back-to-back goals in the third, once at even strength and the other while shorthanded. Fehr now has eight goals and 14 points in 52 games. The Penguins are rolling, now with six wins in a row. Now would not be a good time to face them if you’re an Eastern Conference team in the playoffs. They have to be considered clear-cut second-best team in the East. The Penguins are getting contributions from throughout the lineup, too. Sidney Crosby, Carl Hagelin, Patric Hornqvist and Beau Bennett picked up the other goals. Matt Cullen and Kris Letang had two assists apiece.
