Fantasy Summary

Fehervary is a good skater and passer but does not have the highest of upside for a two-way defenseman


Observations

Click to Expand

January 2022 – Fehervary has solidified himself rather quickly as a top four defenseman on the Capitals seeing around 16 to 22 minutes a night. He has also become a very solid depth add for multi-category leagues with blocks and hits. There is not much else to say as the Capitals have no reason to send him down, except if it is cap related, and he has become a valuable member of the team. Pat Quinn

 

October 2021 – Fehervary has surprised some as he is averaging around 19 minutes of ice time per game, mostly paired alongside John Carlson. He has looked good out there but the advanced numbers sadly are not as positive with a 45.2 CF%, it is early though and he has plenty of time to turn it around. Fehervary also scored his first NHL goal but has not been a shooter so far, however if you league counts hits and blocks he would be a nice asset in deep leagues. Pat Quinn

 

September 2021 – The battle for an NHL spot on the back end lies between Fehervary and Alexeyev, but the edge will be given to Fehervary as he has already played some games in the past. If not for the Capitals signing additional defensemen Fehervary would surely be an NHL defenseman by now. Pat Quinn

 

March 2021 – Fehervary missed a few AHL games to start the season being up on the taxi squad, but has been his usual steady self. He has four points in eight games and really should be in the NHL. One negative point with his current play though is that he only has seven shots in eight games, a surprisingly low number. Pat Quinn

 

January 2021 – Fehervary was on the original group A training camp roster despite the Capitals off season signings, until Chara was signed and brought to training camp. Fehervary is now on group B and he also does not require waivers to be sent down, making him a prime target for the taxi squad as the Capitals’ blue line is now overflowing with players. He may get a few games in but expect him full time in the AHL. Pat Quinn

 

March 2020 – Fehervary got in three more games for the Capitals, and registered his first NHL point. He also averaged around 17 minutes in those three games as Capitals management are quite high on him and for good reason. Fehervary is not going to put up many points in the NHL but his two-way play is great and he will be an NHL player, he will just not be very useful for fantasy hockey. The Capitals will have only four defensemen locked up long term at the conclusion of this season (please come back NHL), and Seigenthaler is getting one of the open spots, but Fehervary will push for a spot on the Capitals in 2020-2021. Fehervary managed to lead Bears defensemen in shots with 102 in 46 games, along with 14 points, perhaps there is some untapped offense there. Pat Quinn

 

December 2019 – Fehervary was sent down to Hershey after three NHL games. He did not look bad but the Capitals have too many defensemen. In Hershey he has nine points in 20 games, which is a lot better statistically than I though he would do, and he is also shooting just over two shots per game. Fehervary will not be one to blow the doors off statistically but there is no reason he could not hit the 25-35 point mark in the NHL over a full season. Pat Quinn

 

September 2019 – Fehervary has made the Capitals out of camp with Michal Kempny on IR and salary cap issues. He will start on the bottom pairing and will look to stay as long as he can. He looked fantastic in exhibition play but the Capitals also have too many defensemen. We will see how it plays out. Pat Quinn

 

June 2019 – Fehervary finished the playoffs with three assists in nine games as his team HV71 was eventually eliminated. In development camp he has been the other stand out on defense, as he is such a good skater who is great at defending and transitioning the puck out of the zone. The Capitals have no room for him in the NHL so expect him to play the 2019-2020 season in Hershey. Just do not expect a boatload of points from him as that is not his game. The Capitals are going to have some hard decisions to make with Johansen, Alexeyev and Fehervary all knocking at the door. Pat Quinn

 

March 2019 – Fehervary has been one of the better defensemen for HV71 in the SHL. He finished the year with seven points in 45 games, and while the points were not there the play was. He is a smart two-way defenseman who is not really known for scoring, as transition and shut down play are his game. In seven playoff games he has two points and is logging top minutes as he is really trusted by the coaching staff. Pat Quinn

 

December 2018 – Fehervary has played solidly for HV71 this season so far. His two-way style makes him a reliable defenseman but his scoring is minimal due to his age-related ice-time and offensive opportunities. Fehervary will be leaned on heavily for Slovakia as he is one of the best players they could bring. He was also named captain showing the faith the team has in him. Realistically Slovakia just needs to be in games as long as possible as they may not get many wins. Pat Quinn

 

July 2018 – Fehervary was selected with the first of the Capitals second round picks and is a safe pick at the spot. He is a good skating defenseman who can make a crisp first past, however his ceiling for points is low. Fehervary has a fine shot and can see the ice well, he also has an average floor making him a safe later round selection for fantasy GMs. Pat Quinn
