On October 29, the all-time leader in outdoor goals, Eric Fehr, returned to Verizon Center for the first time since signing with the Capitals’ hated rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins. Fehr, injured and unable to play in the game, was saluted by the team with a tribute video.
Last night, Fehr got to suit up for the first time against his former team. The Penguins rubbed salt in the wound by reminding us about it at every turn.
Fehr was interviewed by ROOT Sports during the first intermission.
The Pens put Fehr on the cover of that night’s game program.

“It was good to see some familiar faces, but today, it’s all business,” Fehr said Monday morning to Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post.
Fehr still found time to appreciate his past. According to Isabelle, Fehr hosted several Capitals in his new home “for supper” on Sunday night.
On the ice, Fehr was quiet, registering two shots and one hit in the Pens’ 4-1 loss.
