The team is set to bring back one of their former first-round picks.

Per Katie Carrera, the Caps "have invited Eric Fehr to training camp with the intention of signing him to a prorated one-year, $600,000 contract once he passes a physical."

Fehr, the Caps' first pick (18th overall) in the 2003 Draft played 230 games for Washington over six injury-plagued seasons before being traded to Winnipeg for Danick Paquette and the pick that would become Thomas Di Pauli back in July of 2011. The 6'4" winger scored just twice for the Jets in 35 games last season, but put up good numbers in Finland during the lockout and could provide the Caps with another low-risk/medium-reward option at a position of organizational weakness - scoring-line winger.

Of course, Caps fans remember Fehr best for this...
