Caps, Eric Fehr Discuss Multi-Year Deal

According to Tarik El-Bashir, the Capitals and restricted free agent forward Eric Fehr are currently engaged in contract negotiations:

Caps and Eric Fehr are in discussions on a multi year agreement, I’m told.

This is good news for Capitals fans, as Fehr set career marks in several offensive categories. Via Japers’ Rink:

2009-10 was a breakout year for Fehr, as the former first round draft pick broke the 20 goals plateau, set career highs in goals, assists, and points, and enjoyed the healthiest season of his NHL career. But how good was Eric Fehr’s 2009-10 season? Consider the following: by scoring 1.50 goals per sixty minutes of 5-on-5 ice time, Fehr scored more often than every NHL forward other than Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin, Sidney Crosby, and Scottie Upshall. Fehr was no slouch in the assist department either, finishing sixth on the Caps in total assists per minute of 5-on-5 time, and fourth on the team – behind Ovechkin, Semin, and Nicklas Backstrom – in points per sixty minutes. Even more impressively, Fehr did it playing with the worst teammates of any non-fourth liner.

Fehr made $772,000 last season and is due for a pay raise, likely in the $1.5 to $2.5 million range.
