Per the team, the Caps have traded wing Eric Fehr to Winnipeg for a fourth-round pick in 2012 and prospect Danick Paquette. Details to follow.

From the team's release:

Paquette, 20, recorded 20 points (13 goals, seven assists) and 179 penalty minutes in 59 games with the Gwinnett Gladiators of the ECHL last season. The 6’1", 210-pound forward helped the Lewiston MAINEiacs win the QMJHL championship in 2007 and collected 175 points (94 goals, 81 assists) and 691 penalty minutes in 251 career QMJHL games with Lewiston and Quebec. He was originally drafted by the Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise in the third round (64th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Per Paquette's SBN Scouting Report:

Assets: Works well along the boards, due to very good lower-body strength. Is an agitating type with the ability to put up points and drop the gloves.

Flaws: His rambunctious style may get the best of him in the pros, so he may need to pick his spots better. May be a limited point producer at the next level.

Career Potential: Agitating winger.
