Former Capital Eric Fehr is on the move again.
Tuesday afternoon, Pierre LeBrun reported that the Toronto Maple Leafs traded the Capitals all-time leader in outdoor goals to the San Jose Sharks for a seventh round pick.
Leafs trade Eric Fehr to San Jose for a 7th RD pick in 2020. Sharks were looking for a 4C.

Fehr played in only four games in Toronto this season before being sent down to the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies in early November. But instead of joining Toronto’s minor-league team, the Leafs loaned Fehr to the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim’s AHL affiliate.

Since then, Fehr has tore it up for the Gulls, scoring 17 goals in 34 games. It’s the most goals Fehr has scored at any level since the 2014-15 season with Washington (19). Fehr’s 28 points also rank fourth on the team.
Fehr will be reunited in San Jose with injured forward Joel Ward and former Caps PR guy Ben Guerrero.
Could not be more excited to add this guy. Great guy, media will love him. Also the co-author of "The Bulliest Dozer," an anti-bullying story for children published in 2014, with proceeds going to charity. Welcome to San Jose, Fehrsie! https://t.co/Lad1UESJiP

Over the last 24 hours, several teams have made minor deals ahead of the February 26 trade deadline.
Washington landed Michal Kempny from the Chicago Blackhawks. Petr Mrazek and Nick Holden also were flipped to other teams.
