Destined to be the NHL’s all-time leading outdoor scorer.
Ever since Mike Knuble left the Caps– and possibly even before– hockey geeks have wanted one name above all others on the top line with Alex Ovechkin and Nick Backstrom. Eric Fehr, the 29-year-old country music fan from Winkler, Manitoba, seems to have finally gotten the nod.
Fehr is expected to play right wing on the Capitals’ top line to start the season. Your boy Chuck Gormley reported it first.
Trotz has Eric Fehr penciled in as his top-line RW. Says he can use Laich there as well. #CapitalsTalk
