Fehr assisted on Joel Ward's game-opening goal Thursday, and later finished the game with a goal of his own 42 seconds into overtime.

Fehr has just seven goals on the season, but three of them have been game-winners. As a modest offensive contributor who doesn't provide much in the way of secondary fantasy stats, Fehr holds quite minimal value in most formats.

Fehr had the game-winning goal in Washington's 2-1 win over Carolina on Thursday.

Fehr also tallied three shots and three hits in just under 16 minutes of ice time to give him points in back to back games. While he's a versatile player for the Capitals, his role as a bottom-six forward and lack of opportunity in offensive situations make Fehr a reach in all but the deepest of leagues.

Fehr netted his first goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Lightning.

Fehr's marker vaulted the Capitals to a 2-1 lead in the second period, but the advantage would last for just seven minutes. The 29-year-old has been slow to produce this season with just three points in nine games, earning himself his first healthy scratch earlier this week. He doesn't figure to become a regular in the press box, but don't expect his outputs to pick up dramatically in the near future while he remains confined to a third-line role.

Fehr centered a line with Jason Chimera and Joel Ward during Wednesday's practice, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.

Fehr had been playing on the top line alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, sporting an assist and five shots i three games. But in the wake of Tuesday's 6-5 shootout loss to San Jose, head coach Barry Trotz is trying new lines at practice today. Fehr spent much of last season centering Chimera and Ward on what was, on some nights, Washington's best line, so it shouldn't be a difficult transition for Fehr. However, his fantasy value takes a significant hit not playing with Ovechkin and Backstrom.

Fehr has been skating with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the team's top line, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.

With Alex Ovechkin moving back to left wing, Fehr seems the likely candidate to take the job given the need for Troy Brouwer to shoulder the face-off burden on the second line and Joel Ward likely tied to Jason Chimera to form a talented third line. The job appears to be Fehr's to lose at the moment. Given his low ADP, Fehr is worth a late flier or speculative waiver pickup in all formats.

Fehr finished with a goal and an assist, along with two shots in 17:12 of ice time during Monday's 5-4 loss to the Flyers.

Fehr played on a line with Marcus Johansson, one of the contenders for the team's second-line center job, and rookie Jakub Vrana. Given his versatility, Fehr will be a valuable player for the Capitals this season, but it is not yet clear whether he will get top-six forward minutes yet. Fehr spent most of last season centering Jason Chimera and Joel Ward, and although it was a productive unit, the team looks like they are moving him back to wing for the 2014-2015 season. Unless he becomes a fixture alongside the likes of Alex Ovechkin or Nicklas Backstrom, Fehr's fantasy value is likely limited to deeper leagues.

Eric Fehr sustained a lower-body injury in the first period when he blocked a shot in the first period of Sunday's game against Detroit.

He managed to finish the game but he ended up playing just 12:00 of ice time. Coach Adam Oates expects Fehr to play Tuesday even though he didn't practice Monday. Keep him active if you normally would and we'll update his status if it changes.

Eric Fehr has been playing alongside Alex Ovechkin of late.

It's been quite a year for Fehr who was in Finland a year ago, trying to get another NHL contract after his hometown Winnipeg Jets let him go as a UFA at the end of the 2011-12 season. "I think playing in Finland really helped me to be a guy that they want the puck on your stick and to get the feeling of that again. When you play third-, fourth-line minutes for [seven] years, you almost lose the feel of the puck and how to create space and how to hang on to it and make plays," Fehr said. "I think that kind of clicked in my mind again that I can do this and showed me the ways I need to do it again. When I came back here I was playing with a different kind of confidence and reminded back of what I could do." Fehr has eight goals and 19 points in 35 games this season and his fantasy value definitely gets a boost if he continues to play with Ovechkin.

Eric Fehr picked up a pair of goals for the Capitals in Thursday's 4-3 win over Tampa Bay.

With eight goals and 19 points in 34 games this season, Fehr may offer some value in deeper fantasy leagues. Mikhail Grabovski and Marcus Johansson also found the back of the net in the win.
