Capitals Defensive Prospect Martin Fehervary Scores First AHL Goal

Washington Capitals defensive prospect Martin Fehervary scored his first AHL goal Sunday evening in Hershey. The goal came in the second period of the Bears convincing 5-1 win over the rival Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. With the win, the Bears improve to 2-1-1-0 on the season.

Fehervary would pot his first AHL goal, a short-handed variety, at 11:02 of the middle frame, giving the Bears a 4-0 lead. Fehervary would gather the puck and travel the length of the ice, wristing a shot from the right circle, beating Penguins netminder Casey DeSmith blocker side.

Fehervary made the Washington Capitals opening night roster, all at the age of 19. He is only the third Capitals defensemen to make their debut as a teenager (Carlson, Eminger). Fehervary would play in three NHL games before being re-assigned to Hershey.

Fehervary would take to his social media accounts to celebrate the occasion. First on Twitter:

Fehervary also posted to his Instagram account:

Fehervary was re-assigned to the Bears on October 6th, his 20th birthday. The move was made in large part due to salary cap constraints currently being dealt with by the Capitals. The team decided to go with the less expensive Tyler Lewington in order to meet cap requirements when Evgeny Kuznetsov returned.

The Bears return to the ice on Wednesday when they visit the Toronto Marlies. Puck drop is just after 7:00 PM.
