The left-handed shooting Fehervary was expected to graduate to the NHL this season and become a full-time player on the Capitals’ backend after the team lost Brenden Dillon and Zdeno Chara over the offseason.
After making an impressive NHL debut during the 2019-20 season, Fehervary spent all of last year with the Hershey Bears.
The Capitals are already managing injuries to Nicklas Backstrom (hip/week-to-week) and Ilya Samsonov (lower-body/day-to-day).
