With his exceptional professional hockey career now in the rearview mirror, Eric Fehr is back home and ready to begin a new chapter with the Manitoba Junior Hockey League's Winkler Flyers. 

Fehr has been hired as the team's Director of Player Development. 

The 36-year-old Winkler native played 14 seasons in the NHL and scored 113 goals in 652 games. 

The 18th overall pick of the Washington Capitals in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft won the Calder Cup with the Hershey Bears, the Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins and helped Canada captured the Spengler Cup in Davos, Switzerland in 2019. 

Fehr played five games this past season with Kazan Ak-Bars of the KHL.

"It excites me to move back home to Winkler and have the opportunity to assist in the development of the Winkler Flyers as players and young men as they pursue a career in the MJHL and beyond," Fehr stated on the team's website.

Clayton Dreger asked Flyers head coach & general manager Justin Falk to comment on the addition of Eric Fehr to the hockey team
