Last Sunday, General Manager George McPhee announced that the Washington Capitals signed right-wing Eric Fehr to a one-year, $600,000 contract. During the lockout, Fehr played with HPK of the SM-liiga in Finland and recorded 25 points (13 goals, 12 assists). In the 2011-2012 NHL season, Fehr had two goals and one assist in 35 games with the Winnipeg Jets, missing much of the season due to recurring shoulder problems.  Fehr had surgery on his shoulder in October 2011. Caps fans should know Fehr, as he played with the team from 2005-2011. Fehr was also part of the Hershey Bears (the Caps AHL affiliate team), where he was a member of the team that went on to win the 2006 Calder Cup.
