Fehr has been loaned to AHL San Diego -- rather than Toronto's minor-league affiliate, Eric Stephens of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Its an interesting move for the two clubs as Fehr remains under contract with the Maple Leafs. It could be as simple as the amount of depth with the Marlies not providing the veteran an opportunity or it could be a precursor to a trade deal down the road. Either way, the NHL doesn't seem to be in the winger's immediate future.

Fehr was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Saturday, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Initially, it was believed that Fehr -- who has recorded a mere five games in the past two seasons with the Buds -- was to put in a request for unconditional waivers to be released from the team and avoid a stint with the AHL's Marlies. Either way, his days of getting meaningful playing time in the NHL and hitting 30-odd points seem to be far back in the rear-view mirror.

Fehr was placed on waivers by the Maple Leafs on Monday, James Mirtle of The Athletic Toronto reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fehr appears to have lost out on the position battle against Dominic Moore for the fourth-line center role. The veteran never seemed to fit within coach Mike Babcock's system considering he has logged just five games in the last two seasons with Toronto. If he goes unclaimed, the 32-year-old could ask for his unconditional release, rather than report to AHL Toronto.

Fehr caught the eye of coaching staff in scrimmages over the weekend, but remains on the bubble to make the Leafs this season, reports the Toronto Sun.

EDGE Analysis

Fehr is long in the tooth and slow in the foot beside a fast and young Toronto forward corps. It remains to be seen how much preseason action he gets once games start Tuesday. Fehr is likely to be on the outside, looking in come October, but stranger things have happened.

Fehr (finger), who's already back at practice with the Maple Leafs, said "I feel the best I've felt in a long time," the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The oft-injured winger was traded from the Penguins last March, only to sustain a broken finger in his first game with the Buds; an ill-fated shot block caused him to miss the balance of the regular season. Fehr enters the 2017-18 campaign amid a crop of burgeoning young forwards, yet he reportedly doesn't know where he fits in Toronto's plans. But one thing is for sure: his constant fight with the injury bug coupled with the fact that he hasn't cleared 33 points or 75 games in seven seasons means he's bound to be waiver-wire fodder in most fantasy pools.

Fehr (hand) isn't expected to rejoin the lineup for Game 6 against the Capitals, Tom Gulitti of NHl.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran winger has now been sidelined for nearly a month due to the issue, so his return can't be counted on until something suggests he's making progress to receive consideration. Toronto enters the contest down 3-2 in the series, so it would take a victory for Fehr to have a chance at retaking the ice in 2016-17. Regardless, he can't be counted on for consistent ice time or production even when healthy, limiting his fantasy upside in playoff pools even if the team was to advance.

Fehr (hand) will miss Game 5 against the Capitals on Friday, despite being on the ice for the morning's session, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will be the 15th straight absence for Fehr, and he's only played once since Feb. 28. Toronto alone has plenty of offensive firepower on the wing, so poolies involved in the playoff action can likely find a wealth of alternatives to Fehr.

Fehr (hand) will miss his 14th consecutive contest Wednesday against the Capitals, Dave McCarthy of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering he has logged just one game since joining the Leafs organization at the trade deadline, Fehr is unlikely to suit up even once give the all clear. In 52 appearances with the Penguins this year, the winger tallied six goals and five helpers which certainly isn't going to help his case for securing more ice time. At this point, the 31-year-old is probably just a veteran voice in the locker room for one of the NHL's youngest teams rather than an on ice contributor.

Fehr (hand) will remain sidelined for Monday's Game 3 clash with Washington, Dave McCarthy of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fehr has logged just one appearance since being acquired by the Leafs at the trade deadline, both due to injury and as a healthy scratch. Given the postseason emergence of Kasperi Kapanen, the veteran Fehr may not crack the lineup even once he is given the all clear.

Fehr (hand) is out for Game 2 against the Capitals on Saturday, Mark Masters of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fehr seems to be nearing a return, but he's not quite there yet. However, if things don't go well for Toronto, the Leafs may not still be playing when Fehr is ready to return.
