Martin Fehervary Leaves Capitals’ Preseason Game vs. Devils With Upper-Body Injury


The Washington Capitals announced on Monday that defenseman Martin Fehervary will not return to their preseason game against the New Jersey Devils due to an upper-body injury.

The 21-year-old did not play in the last 6:54 of the second period after he blocked a shot, which forced him to shake his hand.

Fehervary, who earned three goals, 17 points, and a +10 rating in 24 AHL games with the Hershey Bears last season, tallied two hits in 11:12 of ice time against the Devils before leaving the game.

He is expected to crack the Capitals’ lineup full-time after Brenden Dillon (traded to Winnipeg Jets) and Zdeno Chara (signed with New York Islanders) left over the offseason.

The Capitals do not play again until Wednesday against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden, a week before they are set to open the regular season vs. the New York Rangers at Capital One Arena.
