Eric Fehr recently announced that he will travel to Finland to play for HPK.

Fehr was hindered by a shoulder injury last season and ended up with just three points in 35 games. Unlike many of the other 2011-12 NHLers that have recently signed with European squads, Fehr was an unrestricted free agent going into the lockout.

He’s a Manitobia-native, so being a part of the new Winnipeg Jets inaugural season must have been special for him. Still, he might have played his last game with the club.

“I wouldn’t say it’s closed,” said Fehr said of rejoining the Jets in a Winnipeg Free Press report back in September, “but it’s not something we’re really looking at. If they came to me and wanted me to come back I’d have to take a good look at it and see if it was a good option for me.”

Fehr has 48 goals and 96 points in 265 NHL games.

    With all due respect Dadoun … what “we” the people need to know, is whether or not this particular person is related to those Fehr “parasites” who are currently trying to destroy our beloved game of hockey ? Please kindly assuage our concerns that this isn’t the case ? Otherwise, this lawyer-bred “punk” can seriously “go to hell” for all we care !

    Eric Fehr is a great grinder, i would love to have him back on the Caps, he would of been a good fit with Hunters coaching style last year. Hope someone picks him up.

    @Blomfeld..No relation to the “lawyers”.. i think you need to check your facts a little more.Friend

      It was meant purely in jest friend … as is most of my Ovechkin bashing 😉
      on this contrived lockout business however, I am dead serious … just watch what magically happens now over the coming couple of weeks … Blomfeld knows !

      GO CAPS GO !!!
