      Penguins' Eric Fehr: Falls back down depth chart

      Fehr returned to the fourth line during practice Monday, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The big forward was held pointless with a minus-3 rating in his two-game stint skating with Sidney Crosby. Fehr practiced on a line with Matt Cullen and Daniel Sprong/Sergei Plotnikov on Monday. The team will continue to use him extensively on the penalty kill.

      Penguins' Eric Fehr: Rises to the top line Friday

      With Pascal Dupuis sidelined, Fehr skated even-strength alongside Sidney Crosby on Friday in Edmonton. In three games since returning from IR, Fehr has gone from a fourth-line penalty killer to the team's top unit. He's scored two short-handed goals and three points, gaining the confidence of coach Mike Johnston quicky. While the buzz on Fehr will likely wear off he make for a cheap, speculative fantasy pickup in the short run.

      Penguins' Eric Fehr: Rings up another shortie Wednesday

      Fehr potted a game-winning, short-handed goal in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Canucks. He's got two shorties and three points in two games since making his season debut. Fehr gives Pittsburgh scoring depth from the fourth line and a skilled penalty killer. It wouldn't be surprising to see him move into a more prominent role when and if injuries strike.

      Penguins' Eric Fehr: Two points in season debut

      Fehr played his first game of the season Saturday against the Maple Leafs and immediately made his presence felt, scoring a shorthanded goal and adding an assist in 12:04. Oh, what could have been for this talented forward whose star potential has largely been snuffed out by injury after injury -- he hasn't actually played a full season since he debuted in 2005-06. Fehr would have decent fantasy potential if he could stay healthy because his skills project much higher in the lineup. But that's too much risk for us to swallow right now.

      Head coach Mike Johnston indicated Wednesday that Fehr (elbow) is nearing a return to the Capitals, Chuck Gormley of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Fehr hasn't had much in terms of updates regarding his status since the beginning of the season, but it appears he's finally close to debuting with his new club in Pittsburgh. He was given a 4-to-6 month timetable initially following surgery in June, and he'll be right in line with that should rejoin the club soon.
