The 33-year-old was back in the NHL on a full-time basis last season with the Wild after spending part of 2017-18 in the minors. He played in 72 games with the Wild, recording seven goals and eight assists (his best output in four years) while logging a little over 11 minutes per night. He also led all Minnesota forwards in penalty kill time per night on a unit that was among the best in the Western Conference.
Despite that, he was unable to secure an NHL contract for next season. Instead, he’ll head overseas with the hopes of playing well enough to get back on the radar next summer from a team looking for veteran help on the fourth line.
If it is the end of his NHL playing days though, Fehr will be able to look back one day and reflect on what was a pretty successful career. He has over 700 games under his belt over his 14 NHL seasons (including playoffs) and more than $17MM in earnings, per CapFriendly.
