Eric Fehr was born September 7, 1985 in Winkler, Manitoba. The first round, 18th overall selection of the Washington Capitals in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Fehr is a graduate of the WHL's Brandon Wheat Kings.

An offensively gifted forward, Fehr played four full seasons in Brandon registering 277 points (146-131-277) while capturing the Bobby Clarke Trophy as the WHL's top scorer in 2004-05, WHL Player of the Year honours in 2005 and WHL East First Team All-Star honours in 2005.

Following an impressive junior career, the Winkler, Manitoba native went on to make his professional debut with the AHL's Hershey Bears in 2005-06 and with his strong play early on in the season was rewarded with his first games with the Caps.

A key member of Hershey's Calder Cup in 2006, Fehre tallied 11 points (8-3-11) in the club's run to the title.

After five seasons in the Capitals organization, Fehr was traded to the Winnipeg Jets for Danick Paquette and a fourth round draft pick.

Fehr would play three more seasons in Washington before leaving as a free agent after the 2014-15. He signed a three year contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins on July 28, 2015. He would go on to appear in 55 regular-season games for the Penguins during the 2015-16 season and his strong two-way play was a key contributing factor the Penguins successful run to the 2016 Stanley Cup championship.

On March 1, 2017, Fehr's time in Pittsburgh would come to an end. He was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Frank Corrado.
