Martin Fehervary Returns To Practice On Thursday After Suffering Lower Body Injury Against Devils

Capitals defenseman Martin Fehervary returned to practice on Thursday. He missed the last two practices and last night’s preseason game against the Bruins after suffering a lower-body injury in the Capitals preseason game against the Devils on Monday night.

The 21-year-old did not play in the last 6:54 of the second period on Monday night 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.

Fehervary 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.
