Heading into the 2021-22 season, there were a number of questions as to how Washington Capitals rookie defenseman Martin Fehervary would adjust to playing in the National Hockey League. With the second half of the season well underway, the rookie rearguard has provided those answers.

On Monday, NHL.com named Fehervary to its All-Star rookie team, one of two defensemen along with Detroit Red Wings rookie Moritz Seider.

Fehervary has blossomed into a top-pairing blueliner for the Caps this season, playing alongside John Carlson and playing an all-around sound game, defensively and at times jumping into the offensive rush. His 19:24 average ice time leads all rookies and ranks in the Top 10 of a few other key statistical categories, including all rookie blueliners in hits with 113. In 42 Games Played, Fehervary has record three goals and six points. The 6’2″ defenseman was drafted by the team in the second-round (46th overall) of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
