Eric Fehr: Continuing career in Europe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr penned a one-year deal with Geneve-Servette (Switzerland) on Saturday.

Fehr's only other appearance overseas came during the lockout shortened 2012-13 campaign, in which he played for HPK in Finland. Over the course of his 14-year NHL career, the veteran notched 113 goals, 108 assists and 1,109 shots in 652 games for Washington, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Winnipeg, San Jose and Minnesota. With the move, the 33-year-old has likely played in his last NHL contest.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Decent in limited role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr has four points while averaging just 11:53 of ice time in his last 10 games.

Stuck on the fourth line for much of the season, Fehr has still been able to produce 15 points in 66 games. The 33-year-old has also added to his value on the defensive end, dishing out 35 hits and 43 blocks. With an average of just two seconds of power-play time this campaign, Fehr doesn't provide any legitimate fantasy value going forward.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Scores unassisted goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr notched his sixth goal of the season in Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Predators.

The tally was Fehr's first point since Dec. 29, a span of 19 appearances, during which he also spent time out with an undisclosed injury. He blocked two shots and fired two shots on goal in Sunday's contest. Fehr has 11 points in 56 games with a minus-11 rating this season, making him a fantasy non-factor.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Virtually non-existent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr has no points while averaging 8:39 of ice time since the calendar turned to February.

The 33-year-old has been a staple as the fourth-line center for the Wild, but hasn't quite produced. In 50 games this campaign, Fehr has racked up only 10 points. One main reason he's having a tough time scoring could be the fact that he has more games played (50) than shots on goal (45). Keep Fehr on the waiver wire.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Returning to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (illness) is set to return to the lineup against the Oilers on Thursday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Fehr was held out of Tuesday's clash with the Sabres due to illness, but it would appear the veteran is ready to go versus Edmonton. The gritty center has just 10 points in 43 games this season, so fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on him for consistent offensive production.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Under the weather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr isn't expected to play Tuesday against Buffalo due to an illness, Chad Graff of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

With Fehr unavailable, veteran forward Matt Hendricks will draw into the lineup against the Sabres. The 33-year-old winger will hope to recover in time for Thursday's matchup with Edmonton.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Taken off injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve Friday and will suit up versus Dallas.

Fehr -- who figures to slot into a fourth-line role -- isn't exactly an offensive stud, as he has just 10 points in 41 contests. Still, the Manitoban could challenge for the 20-point mark this year and provide some depth scoring for the Wild.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Expected to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (undisclosed), barring an unforeseen turn of events, plans to play Friday in Dallas, Brian Murphy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Fehr has been out since Jan. 7, missing nine games with an undisclosed injury. The 33-year-old remains on injured reserve, but as coach Bruce Boudreau alluded to in his post-practice media scrum, the expectation is for Fehr to come off IR in the coming days. If not Thursday, look for the Wild to activate the veteran Friday, ahead of their game versus the Stars.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Unavailable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (undisclosed) won't be in action versus the Avalanche on Wednesday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Fehr will miss his ninth straight contest due to his undisclosed issue. Considering the center has just one point in his last 18 outings, his extended absence from the lineup is unlikely to be noticed by the bulk of fantasy owners. Once cleared to play, Fehr figures to slot into a fourth-line role.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (undisclosed) will not play Monday versus Vegas and is questionable for Wednesday's game in Colorado, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Earlier thought to have an outside chance to play Monday, Fehr has been ruled out against Vegas. The 33-year-old veteran remains questionable for Wednesday's contest versus the Avalanche. If Fehr misses that one, he'll benefit from an extended break provided by the NHL's All-Star Game and will hope to return Feb. 1 in Dallas.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Game-time decision Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (undisclosed) traveled with the team and could suit up versus Vegas on Monday, Danny Webster of reports.

Fehr remains on injured reserve and until he's removed, the 33-year-old will not be able to make his return from an undisclosed injury. He's missed the past seven games, and if he can't go Monday, Fehr's next chance to play will come Wednesday in Colorado.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Full practice participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (undisclosed) practiced without limitations Sunday, Rachel Blount of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Although Fehr wasn't included in the practice lines, it appears he's closing in on a return. The veteran winger's next chance to crack the lineup will be Monday's road game versus the Golden Knights, and an activation from injured reserve would precede that move.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (undisclosed) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Fehr isn't expected to be ready to return until after the NHL's upcoming All-Star break, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. Another update on the veteran winger's status should surface prior to Minnesota's matchup with Dallas on Feb. 1.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Out 1-2 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (undisclosed) will be out of action 1-2 weeks, per coach Bruce Boudreau.

Boudreau wouldn't expand upon the nature of Fehr's problem beyond calling it a body injury. Based on his timeline, the Manitoba native could be out of the lineup until Feb. 1 due to the team's bye week and the All-Star break. Joel Eriksson Ek figures to center the fourth line in Fehr's absence. While the transaction hasn't been processed yet, look for the 33-year-old to be placed on injured reserve soon.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Injury not severe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (undisclosed) has avoided a long-term injury, according to Wild coach Bruce Boudreau, adding, "He's just sore."

Fehr was on the receiving end of a late hit by Kenny Agostino in Monday's shutout win, and while it's obviously positive news that he's avoided a serious injury, the fourth-line center doesn't appear fit to play in Tuesday's road game against the Bruins. Joel Eriksson Ek was called up from AHL Iowa on Tuesday take his spot in the lineup.

Wild's Eric Fehr: No update on injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr (undisclosed) did not return to Monday's game after leaving during the first period and head coach Bruce Boudreau did not have a further update after the contest.

Fehr took a nasty hit along the boards and immediately left the ice, failing to return to the game. The 33-year-old forward will travel with his team to Boston, but his status for Tuesday's game is unclear at the moment.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Early season stats deceiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr went minus-3 with two empty shots in Tuesday's 4-3 home loss to the Coyotes.

While Fehr was partially responsible for allowing the Coyotes to overcome a 3-1 deficit and skate away with the win, he deserves recognition for his penchant for producing offense in a limited role. The fourth-liner has two goals in the past five games and he's averaging a robust 1.9 points per 60 minutes, qualifying Fehr as a solid punt play in DFS tournaments.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Scores first goal of 2018-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr scored his team's opening goal and assisted on an empty-netter in a 4-1 win over the Kings on Thursday.

That's now two games in a row in which Fehr has scored, but don't get too excited. He still doesn't get much ice time and had gone scoreless for seven games before this one, so there isn't much reason for Fehr to be on your roster unless he turns this blip into a trend.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Finally records point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr set up an even-strength goal and committed two minor penalties in Saturday's 5-4 overtime home win over the Lightning.

Fehr's primary apple counted as his first point of the season. The journeyman doesn't play enough to warrant fantasy consideration -- he's averaging 12:49 of ice time as a role player with penalty-killing duties.

Wild's Eric Fehr: Two shots on goal Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fehr had two shots on goal and two blocks, but was a minus-1 in Thursday's loss at Colorado.

He had 11:04 of ice time as he got 1:55 of ice time on the penalty kill as well. Fehr may not get on the ice consistently as he could rotate being out of the fourth line with J.T. Brown.
