He may be fast and tough on the ice but Capitals forward Eric Fehr is the new king of storytime at Westover Branch Library.
No. 16 stopped by Monday night for a reading of his new children’s book, “The Bulliest Dozer,” and scored plenty of new friends and fans as he signed books, hockey sticks, seat cushions and even an Arlington Public Library card (nice going Leon).
Proceeds from the book benefit Playworks DC, part of a national non-profit that focuses on school recess to teach valuable social skills such as empathy, fair play and inclusiveness.
Capping a stellar night in Westover was the weather, at least for Fehr. Rain and temperatures in the 30s is the perfect season for shorts according to the
British Columbia Manitoba native.
Just the same, we’ll stick with hockey season and storytime season for now. Go Caps!
And thank you Eric Fehr and Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation.

A small correction on your comment. Eric is a Manitoba native, not a British Columbia native.
Public Information Officer says
Ah, thanks Al. You are absolutely correct. Was thinking too much about the Caps’ West Coast trip this week. All respect to Manitobans and British Columbians out there.
