Hey there, time traveller!

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have landed what they think might be a top-six forward from the Washington Capitals, acquiring Winkler’s Eric Fehr in exchange for forward Danick Paquette and the Jets’ fourth-round pick in next year’s entry draft.

Fehr, 25, has been a full-time NHLer now for three seasons after splitting his time between the Caps and AHL Hershey Bears after he turned pro in 2006.

The former Brandon Wheat Kings sniper — he scored 59 goals his final year of junior — has posted seasons of 12, 21 and 10 goals for the Capitals since 2008-09.

Last season, the right-winger had 20 points in 52 games for the Caps.

Former Washington Capitals right wing Eric Fehr celebrates after scoring against the Tampa Bay Lightning during the second period of Game 1 of the NHL Eastern Conference Semifinals Playoffs at the Verizon Center Friday, April 29, 2011. Fehr was traded to Winnipeg.

The former Brandon Wheat Kings sniper — he scored 59 goals his final year of junior — has posted seasons of 12, 21 and 10 goals for the Capitals since 2008-09.

Last season, the right-winger had 20 points in 52 games for the Caps.

Paquette, a right-winger, was a third-round Atlanta draft pick in 2008 out of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

He played last season with the ECHL’s Gwinnett Gladiators, scoring 13 goals and 20 points in 59 games.

The trade is a salary dump of sorts by the Caps, who are shipping Fehr’s $2.2 million one-way deal to the Jets. The trade brings Washington just back under the NHL’s cap of $64.3 million next season, still with a restricted free agent in Karl Alzner to sign.

The Jets, meanwhile, pulled up closer to the salary floor of $48.3 million by adding Fehr. They also have RFA’s to sign, among them Blake Wheeler and Zach Bogosian.

Fehr, a former first-round draft pick (2003) is about to enter the final year of his contract.
