  • Capitals' Martin Fehervary: Snags helper in return

    Fehervary notched an assist, two hits and two PIM in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Sharks.

    Fehervary missed five games with a lower-body injury and was eased back into action with 15:08 of ice time Monday. He helped out on Evgeny Kuznetsov's second-period tally, which tied the game at 1-1. Fehervary is up to three helpers, 18 shots on net, 31 hits, 21 blocked shots, eight PIM and a plus-1 rating through 13 contests overall. He'll likely see his workload increase gradually as he gets back up to speed.

  • Capitals' Martin Fehervary: Expected back Monday

    Fehervary (lower body) is slated to play in Monday's matchup with San Jose.

    Fehervary is poised to return following a five-game stint on the shelf due to his lower-body problem. With just two points in 12 contests this year, the 24-year-old blueliner is unlikely to perform significantly better than he did last season when he notched 16 points in 67 outings. In order to activate Fehervary off injured reserve, the club will need to return either Alexander Alexeyev or Lucas Johansen to the minors, though it could also place T.J. Oshie (upper body) on IR to free up a roster spot.

  • Capitals' Martin Fehervary: Expected to remain out

    Fehervary (lower body) stayed on the ice late Wednesday, Tarik El-Bashir of Monumental Sports Network reports, indicating he won't be in the lineup against Buffalo.

    Previous reports indicated Fehervary could be an option against Columbus on Saturday, however, the defenseman not only missed that contest but will be out versus the Sabres as well. At this point, the Slovak should probably still be labeled day-to-day as he is at least practicing with the team.

  • Capitals' Martin Fehervary: Could return Saturday

    Fehervary (lower body) hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's matchup with Columbus, Tarik El-Bashir of Monumental Sports Network reports.

    Fehervary is currently on injured reserve, so he wasn't eligible to play against Vegas on Tuesday but could return in the next contest. Prior to getting hurt, the 24-year-old defenseman had recorded assists in back-to-back games, though those are his only points this season. In order to play Saturday, Fehervary will need to be activated off injured reserve, a move that would likely see Dylan McIlrath sent back to the minors.

    Fehervary provided a shorthanded assist in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Panthers.

He managed to chip the puck away from the defensive zone on the penalty kill in this one, creating a breakaway for allied forwards Aliaksei Protas and Connor McMichael, who ended up with the second-period tally. The Capitals aren't relying on Fehervary for man-advantage contributions, but the defenseman is on the top pair, and he remains a key shutdown presence.

  • Capitals' Martin Fehervary: Departs Wednesday's contest

    Fehervary (lower body) won't return to Wednesday's game versus the Ducks.

  • Capitals' Martin Fehervary: Slips assist

The 23-year-old defenseman has added 51 shots on net, 124 hits, 66 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating. His physical play can help in some fantasy formats, but he's not someone managers should rely on for offense.

  • Capitals' Martin Fehervary: Nets two points in loss

    Fehervary scored a goal and an assist on one shot in the Capitals' 4-2 loss to the Wild on Tuesday.

  • Capitals' Martin Fehervary: Scores in win

    Fehervary scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Fehervary's game-winning goal was certainly a unique one. Dylan Strome's shot was deflected into the air, off the helmet of a leaping Fehervary, and past Elvis Merzlikins to give Washington a 3-2 lead in the second period. Fehervary now has a goal and an assist in three games since returning from a 12-game IR stint with an upper-body injury. The 23-year-old blueliner won't offer much offensive production (three goals and three assists in 29 games) but he does provide some physicality with 92 hits and 46 blocked shots on the season.
