Restricted Free Agent Eric Fehr has signed a 2 year, $4.4M deal with the Washington Capitals – a signing he announced via his twitter account. Fehr joins a recently re-signed Jeff Schultz and Boyd Gordon, leaving Tomas Fleischmann as the sole RFA yet to sign.
Besides being the muse for awesome t-shirts, Fehr appeared in 69 regular season games for the Capitals during the 2009-2010 season, amassing 21 goals and 18 assists for 39 points, finishing with a +18 rating. He also appeared in all 7 of the Capitals post-season games this year, scoring 3 goals and adding assist for 4 points with a +2 rating.
It’s been a long road for F16, dealing with nearly crippling injuries and surgeries, and it will be interesting to see what a new deal as well as a clean bill of health (and hopeful increase in ice time) will do to his production over the next two years.
