The pending restricted free agent was told by the Jets they won’t be sending him a qualifying offer before Monday’s deadline.
“No, we did not,” Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said Saturday afternoon after the 2012 NHL Entry Draft came to a close.
The right-winger from Winkler was the first player Cheveldayoff traded for, coming over from the Washington Capitals last summer in a deal for an ECHL prospect and a 2012 fourth round draft pick.
What looked like a good opportunity for Fehr quickly became a nightmare as he missed all of training camp and the first 20 games of the season after recovering from off-season shoulder surgery.
Once the rehab was complete, Fehr quickly found his way into head coach Claude Noel’s doghouse and struggled to find his offensive confidence.
Rather than the Top-6 forward minutes that were projected for him, Fehr spent much of his time on the fourth line and struggled to find his scoring touch, finishing with two goals and three points in 35 games last season.
