No Fehr deal for Jets winger

PITTSBURGH — It looks like the Winnipeg Jets will be moving on from right-winger Eric Fehr.

GM Kevin Cheveldayoff said after Saturday’s final rounds of the NHL entry draft that the team has not extended a qualifying offer to the Winkler native.

That will make him an unrestricted free agent next Sunday.

Fehr, 26, scored two goals and three points in 35 games for the Jets in the season just completed.

He missed the first 20 games of the season recovering from last summer’s shoulder surgery.

Once in the lineup, Fehr just couldn’t seem to click with anyone, eventually working his way out of coach Claude Noel’s regular lineup.

At $2.2 million in the second-year of a two-year deal he got from the Washington Capitals, the Jets have decided they won’t offer Fehr that in a qualifying offer.

Fehr was acquired from the Caps last summer for a fourth-round pick in Saturday’s draft and ECHL winger Danick Paquette.
