ARLINGTON, V.A. — The Marty Party has returned to the District, as Martin Fehervary has officially joined the Washington Capitals informal skates.

The 22-year-old is coming off a busy offseason in Slovakia, where he chipped his two front teeth in training in the final session before he left for D.C. However, a dentist repaired it before he returned to D.C.

Fehervary joins a busy group as he, Matt Irwin and more returned to join Evgeny Kuznetsov, Alex Ovechkin, Carl Hagelin, Nic Dowd, Garnet Hathaway, John Carlson, Nick Jensen and more.

With both teeth in tact, Fehervary took part in passing drills and a full-ice scrimmage, taking his usual spot alongside Carlson. His team lost in the scrimmage in sudden-death OT. Goaltending coach Scott Murray led the informal skate.

The Slovak is looking to build off a strong rookie year. He finished with eight goals and nine assists for 17 points in 79 games last year. He skated alongside Carlson for the entire campaign on the top pairing. His standout play and strong skating, as well as his transition to the role of a top-pairing d-man in his first year, led to him finishing 14th in Calder voting.

Training camp begins next week. The only Washington skater not yet in attendance is Conor Sheary.
