Caps Trade Eric Fehr

By Sky Kerstein

The Capitals announced that they have traded six year veteran Eric Fehr to the Winnipeg Jets for the Jets 2012 fourth round pick in the NHL Entry Draft and prospect Danick Paquette.  Fehr was a 2003 first round pick for the Capitals and played parts of six seasons for the Capitals and two seasons for the AHL Hershey Bears.  In 230 NHL regular season games, Fehr had 46 goals and 47 assists and in 26 playoff games had five goals and one assist.  Fehr battled injuries throughout his career and with a lot of right wingers in the system, this move clears 2.2 million in salary next season.

The Capitals receive prospect Danick Paquette who had 13 goals and seven assists for the ECHL Gwinnett Gladiators last season.  The 20 year old Paquette also accumulated 179 penalty minutes in 59 games.  The Capitals also announced Paquette will participate in the Capitals rookie development camp which starts Monday.  Paquette was originally drafted by Winnipeg/Atlanta in the 3rd round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
