Fehr (hand) isn't expected to rejoin the lineup for Game 6 against the Capitals, Tom Gulitti of NHl.com reports. The veteran winger has now been sidelined for nearly a month due to the issue, so his return can't be counted on until something suggests he's making progress to receive consideration. Toronto enters the contest down 3-2 in the series, so it would take a victory for Fehr to have a chance at retaking the ice in 2016-17. Regardless, he can't be counted on for consistent ice time or production even when healthy, limiting his fantasy upside in playoff pools even if the team was to advance.
Fehr (hand) will miss Game 5 against the Capitals on Friday, despite being on the ice for the morning's session, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports. This will be the 15th straight absence for Fehr, and he's only played once since Feb. 28. Toronto alone has plenty of offensive firepower on the wing, so poolies involved in the playoff action can likely find a wealth of alternatives to Fehr.
Fehr (hand) will miss his 14th consecutive contest Wednesday against the Capitals, Dave McCarthy of NHL.com reports. Considering that he's logged just one game since joining the Leafs at the trade deadline, Fehr is unlikely to suit up even when given the all-clear. In 52 appearances with the Penguins this year, the winger tallied six goals and five helpers, which certainly isn't going to help his case for securing more ice time when healthy. At this point, the 31-year-old is probably just a veteran locker-room presence for one of the NHL's youngest teams rather than an on-ice contributor.
Fehr (hand) will remain sidelined for Monday's Game 3 clash with Washington, Dave McCarthy of NHL.com reports. Fehr has logged just one appearance since being acquired by the Leafs at the trade deadline, both due to injury and as a healthy scratch. Given the postseason emergence of Kasperi Kapanen, the veteran Fehr may not crack the lineup even once he is given the all-clear.
Fehr (hand) is out for Game 2 against the Capitals on Saturday, Mark Masters of TSN reports. Fehr seems to be nearing a return, but he's not quite there yet. However, if things don't go well for Toronto, the Leafs may not still be playing when Fehr is ready to return.
