A Three-Year Contract For Eric Fehr In Pittsburgh

via the Pittsburgh Penguins,

The Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed to terms with forward Eric Fehr to a three-year contract, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.

The deal runs through the 2017-18 season and has an average annual value of $2 million.

Fehr, 29, has played most of his 10-year NHL career with the Washington Capitals. He posted 19 goals, 33 points and a plus-8 in the 2014-15 campaign with Washington. His goal total was the second-highest mark of his career.

The 6-foot-4, 212-pound center was a key member of the Capitals’ penalty kill unit in ’14-15, logging 1:23 shorthanded minutes per game. The defensively reliable center won a career-high 52 percent of his faceoffs.

Fehr underwent elbow surgery June 3 and faces a recovery time of 4-6 months.

Fehr has been a plus or even nine times in his NHL career, and has broken the 30-point plateau three times, including each of the past two seasons.
