We are less than two weeks away from the start of training camp for the Washington Capitals, as many of the roster players and prospects have already made their way back to the District. Capitals defenseman Martin Fehervary has yet to travel to Washington, but will return to D.C. in the next few days.

Fehervary held one final workout in his hometown of Bratislava, Slovakia on Saturday morning. Unfortunately, during the workout Fehervary encountered an unexpected reworking of his dental profile, after he took a stick to the face.

Fehervary shared a photo of his new smile on his Instagram account on Saturday.

“Why not do one last training session before leaving?😵‍💫” wrote Fehervary. It appears that the stick chipped two of his front teeth and drew a little blood in the process.

Fortunately, Fehervary reports he is doing well, thanking a local dentist for fixing him up in a follow up post to his Instagram account on Saturday.

“Fortunately the guys from @biodent_bratislava also took care of me on Saturday 🙏 and I thank them very much for their great attitude and work” wrote Fehervary.

Having followed Fehervary since his draft day in 2018, there is one thing I can say for certain about his character. He is tough as nails and one tough customer.

Capitals training camp is set to begin on Thursday, September 22. The Capitals first preseason game is two weeks from Sunday when they visit the Sabres in Buffalo on September 25.

    Ouch. Like Hags’ injury, a reminder that hockey is a tough sport no matter when played. I was glad when visors were mandated and would still prefer to see pros wear facemasks.
    But at least it wasn’t a horrible result like Hags’. I’m anxious to see Hags play in training camp. At first I didn’t think he would even try to come back from that injury.

      Also interested in Hags. I suspect he will play this year. The Cap hit is tough, but as things stand now, we can afford that and he makes the fourth line better. If he plays, I suspect we’ll see Mojo go to Hershey. There will be a lot of interesting battles in Camp this year.
