"I don't think they are really looking at our players," the forward said after Wednesday's morning skate. "I think they are more interested in what the doctor has all done and who he's been giving stuff to. I don't think as player we are really targeted."
Fehr, Shaone Morrisonn and Matt Bradley said they visited chiropractor Douglas Nagel, who was arrested Tuesday on suspicion steroid distribution. A hearing is scheduled Friday where Nagel will ask to be released on bond pending his April 23 extradition hearing, Nagel's lawyer, Brian West, told FanHouse.
None of the players said they were supplied steroids by Nagel and the Florida sheriff's office leading the investigation haven't found a link.
" At this point in the investigation, we do not have any conclusive proof that any professional athlete purchased any drugs from Nagel," Polk County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Carrie Eleazer said in an e-mail. "The investigation continues."
West said his client didn't distribute steroids to the Capitals or anyone else.
"There is no story here," Bradley said. "We didn't think twice about (talking to investigators). We did what they asked and that's the end of it. We have nothing to hide here. For me, it's a non-issue."
Two investigators from the Polk County Sheriff's Department, at least two agents from the U.S. Marshal's Service and at least one investigator from the Fairfax County Sheriff's Department came to Kettler Capitals Iceplex to seek out players who were clients of Nagel.
Polk County authorities were led to the area in the wake of last June's arrest of Richard Thomas, a Lakeland, Fla., man accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs. Thomas told authorities he supplied Capitals and Washington Nationals players with steroids .
Eleazer said Polk County investigators have found no evidence Thomas supplied pro athletes with performance-enhancing drugs. Separate investigations by MLB and the NHL found the same.
The Polk County Sheriff's Department released nine waybills from U.S. Postal Service and FedEx of shipments Thomas sent to Nagel over the last two years. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said the amounts of steroids authorities suspect Nagel took in went well beyond what's needed for personal use.
Morrisonn and Fehr said they had only seen Nagel, who has an office at a mall attached to the Caps' training center, a couple times. Bradley said he'd seen Nagel about a dozen times to address a back problem.
"He was a good guy," Bradley said. "I went in there for quick adjustment. I was in there for five or 10 minutes at a time. I just went in there and got my adjustment and left."
Investigators also spoke with Caps coach Bruce Boudreau.
"They never asked me if I used steroids," smirked a robust Boudreau.
"There shouldn't be anything to black out," Boudreau said. "We're not hiding anything. They interviewed some players and myself yesterday and it should be done. I had no qualms. We all told the truth and it should be done."
