Capitals Prospect Martin Fehervary Steps Up In Swedish Hockey League Playoffs

Martin Fehervary and his HV71 lost the fifth quarterfinal game against Färjestad in the third (!) overtime period, making it the second longest playoff game in Swedish Hockey League (SHL) history. It lasted for 117 minutes, and the Caps prospect played the second most minutes in the entire game, logging 43:13 minutes of the ice.

“What a capacity, I’m amazed about him”, popular Swedish analyst Niklas Wikegård said about the performance during the game.

Before tonight’s game, Fehervary spoke to local newspaper JP about his recent play.

“I believe I’m playing my best hockey so far in my career. I love this”, the defenceman said.

The Capitals second round draft pick in 2018 (46th overall) has been a top pair player during the playoffs, after some injuries to the team, and has really made the most of the opportunity. Analysts and the media praised Fehervary during the game, and one could argue that tonight was his real coming out party.

Fehervary is a complete defenseman, with amazing skating abilities and a two-way game worth noting. He is a big guy, but at the same time very fast and barely loses any foot races.

On monday he and his team plays for survival, trying to tie the game series, which Färjestad now lead with three games to two.
