A Shot Of Martini: Martin Fehervary Scores Third Goal in Four Games In Style

The 2021-22 regular season saw the Washington Capitals give rookie defenseman Martin Fehervary an opportunity to become a regular in the lineup on the blueline. The former second-round pick (2018) has made the most of that opportunity, and during the Capitals’ Tuesday night tilt against the Philadelphia Flyers, he once again showed why.

With the Capitals leading the Flyers 2-1, Fehervary took a pass from Center Nic Dowd and weaved his way past Philly defender Ronnie Attard, and backhanded the puck through the pads of Carter Hart for his eighth goal of the season; Garnet Hathaway was also credited with an assist.

The goal marks Fehervary’s third goal in his past four games, and continues an impressive rookie campaign for the Bratislava, Slovakia native, in which he has scored eight goals and recorded seven assists in 69 games this season. He becomes the sixth rookie blueliner in franchise history to reach the eight-goal mark.

Fehervary has been affectionately referred to as “Shots of Martini” or “Martini Shot” by captain Alex Ovechkin during the team’s famous pre-game routines.

The Capitals ended the first period up 3-1.

    Marty’s always had that in him, he’s showed that at HV-71 and at times with Hershey. Glad he is coming out of his shell, offensively. He’s a serious threat. Three goals in the last four games. Keep on keeping on, Martin.

    Very impressed with Marty Fever the last several games. Could be a key cog to playoff success, such an underrated offensive skillset.
