Fehr (shoulder) is on the ice for pregame warmups Wednesday for Game 7 against the Rangers and is expected to play, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Fehr has not played all series due to a shoulder injury but will make his return Wednesday. He will replace Curtis Glencross on Washington's fourth line.

Fehr (shoulder) is highly unlikely play in Wednesday's Game 7 against the Rangers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Fehr was doubtful coming in, and he's missed the team's last nine playoff contests due to the injury. While it sounds as though he's nearing a return, it probably won't come Wednesday night. "I wish I could, but I'm not quite ready [to play] yet," Fehr said.

Fehr (shoulder) is still being viewed as day-to-day and is considered unlikely to play in Wednesday's Game 7 against the Rangers, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.

Fehr has missed the Capitals' last nine postseason games due to the injury, but the team seems optimistic that he'd be able to play again at some point during the Eastern Conference Finals, should his team advance. In Fehr's absence, Jay Beagle has been called upon to center the Caps' third line.

Fehr (shoulder) was the only player to take the ice Thursday and remains day-to-day, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.

Fehr has yet to suit up in a game for the Capitals since sustaining a shoulder injury in Game 3 of Washington's opening series against the Islanders, and is unlikely to get the call for Friday's Game 5 in New York.

Fehr (shoulder) won't play in Wednesday's Game 4 against the Rangers, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.

Coach Barry Trotz acknowledged that it might be tough to find a spot for Fehr in the team's lineup right now, but that of course could change if a Caps' forward gets injured on Wednesday.

Fehr (shoulder) conducted an on-ice workout with strength coach Mark Nemish after the Caps' optional skate Monday morning, the Washington Post reports.

It appears safe to rule Fehr out for Monday's Game 3 against the Rangers, though coach Barry Trotz does indicate that he thinks the forward could play before the end of the Caps' current second-round playoff series.

Fehr (upper body) will not play in Saturday's Game 2 against the Rangers, ESPN's Katie Strang reports

Capitals coach Barry Trotz said Thursday that Fehr will soon resume skating with the team, but a return for Game 2 never appeared to be a realistic possibility. Fehr may stand some chance to return for Monday's Game 3 or Wednesday's Game 4.

Coach Barry Trotz said Thursday morning that Fehr is "very close" to skating with the team, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.

Fehr was limited to working out on his own the past two days, and has been ruled out from playing in Thursday's Game 1 against the Rangers. It doesn't sound like as he's far off of a return at this point, as he could rejoin the team for practice as soon as Friday. Should that materialize, Trotz more than likely wouldn't feel comfortable having Fehr reenter the lineup for Saturday's Game 2, making Monday's Game 3 a more plausible target date.

Fehr (upper body) skated on his own prior to Wednesday's practice, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.

Fehr has yet to resume taking part in full practice with the Capitals, so it appears safe to rule him out for Game 1 of the second-round series with the Rangers on Thursday. Jay Beagle has took over centering duties on the third line since Fehr left the lineup over the final four games of the first-round series with the Islanders.

Fehr (upper body) won't play in Game 7 against the Islanders, Mike Vogel of the Caps' official site reports.

Fehr - who suffered the upper-body injury in Game 3 - skated on his own Sunday, but won't be available for the club as they look to advance to the second round of the playoffs. However, coach Barry Trotz indicated he would be available in the next round should the Capitals.
