The Pittsburgh Penguins are set to celebrate Marc-Andre Fleury‘s monumental achievements at the upcoming event in Minnesota. The night will honor Fleury’s remarkable milestone of playing in 1,000 games in the NHL and surpassing Patrick Roy for the second-most career wins among goaltenders.
Head Coach Mike Sullivan expressed the team’s excitement to be part of the tribute for Fleury, acknowledging his significant contributions during his 13 seasons with the Penguins. Fleury, a three-time Stanley Cup champion with the franchise, is hailed as a Hall of Fame-caliber goalie by his former teammates and coaches.
Among the former Penguins players, there is a sense of awe at Fleury’s recent accomplishments, with Evgeni Malkin praising his on-ice performance and infectious personality. Kris Letang and Sidney Crosby also reflected on Fleury’s impact on the team’s success and his positive influence in the locker room.
Fleury shared his reflections on his time in Pittsburgh, highlighting memorable moments like his NHL debut in 2003 and the journey to winning three Stanley Cups with a core group of players including Crosby, Malkin, and Letang. His teammates remember Fleury for his competitive spirit and upbeat attitude both on and off the ice.
As the Penguins prepare to face Fleury in Minnesota, there is a bittersweet feeling surrounding the possibility that this could be their last meeting on the ice. Fleury, contemplating his future in the NHL, remains focused on savoring every moment of his career.
The decision to part ways with Fleury in 2017 was a challenging one for the Penguins organization, as GM Jim Rutherford had to make a tough choice between Fleury and Matt Murray. Despite the move, Fleury’s legacy continued to grow, culminating in a Vezina Trophy win and a remarkable run to the Stanley Cup Final with the Vegas Golden Knights.
With emotions running high as Fleury is celebrated in Minnesota, his former teammates and fans will come together to honor his contributions to the Penguins franchise and the lasting impact he has had on the team.
