Capitals fans will have a chance to see Martin Fehervary in action in Wednesday night’s preseason game between the Capitals and the St. Louis Blues. The 19-year-old defenseman is considered by the Capitals front office as having a good shot at cracking the Capitals roster this season.
During July’s Development Camp, Capitals’ Director of Player Development Steve Richmond pointed out Fehervary as being very close to making the team soon.
“We’re all big fans of [Fehervary]. I think he has a chance to play in the NHL this year,” said Richmond. “He does everything well. He’s a great skater. […] He’s smart. He’s really close.”
Head Coach Todd Reirden called Fehervary a “sharp kid” and sang his praises after the first day of Training Camp. “He’s a guy who we’ve liked since we got him,” Reirden said. “With his ability to skate, he’s really today’s style of defenseman.”
