Marc-Andre Fleury is upbeat as he moves on from the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Fleury waived his no-movement clause so that the Penguins could expose him in the expansion draft and the Golden Knights claimed him. "I'm very excited about it," Fleury said. "It was time. I was fortunate to be there for 14 years. I'm thankful for this opportunity in Vegas, to be a part of this community and organization." He won the Stanley Cup three times with the Penguins, but Matt Murray was clearly the Penguins' number one goaltender at this point. Now Fleury will likely find himself as a team's top netminder again and he'll also be one of the highest profile members of the expansion team. Jun 22 - 10:00 AM

The Vegas Golden Knights took Marc-Andre Fleury from the Pittsburgh Penguins in the expansion draft.

The Penguins also provided Vegas with a 2020 second round pick to guarantee that the Golden Knights would choose Fleury. He will be one of the highest profile members of the expansion team. The 32-year-old is a three-time Stanley Cup winner with a 375-216-68 record, 2.58 GAA, and .912 save percentage in 691 career games. He's been a big part of the Penguins for a long time, but Matt Murray rose to become the team's number one goaltender and was in between the pipes for both of the Penguins' championship-winning games in 2016 and 2017. In the end, the Penguins are arguably better off now with the $5.75 million in freed cap space, which is why they surrendered a pick to make sure Vegas took him.

Pittsburgh reportedly gave Vegas a draft pick to ensure that the Golden Knight will choose Marc-Andre Fleury in the expansion draft.

This deal was apparently agreed to a while ago because it was believed that Vegas would have plenty of goaltending options to choose from. It's also expected that Fleury will be there when the team is revealed Wednesday night and he will help serve as a face of the franchise.

Marc-Andre Fleury decided to waive his no-movement clause for the good of the team.

"The team came forward to me and asked ... it gave them more [flexibility] for the future, for the summer, so they weren't scrambling to trade me," Fleury said. "I thought it was the right thing to help the team, to stay with the team and finish the season here and have a chance to play for the Cup again." It turned out to be a great decision because Fleury was called upon to start for the Penguins after Matt Murray was hurt at the beginning of the playoffs. Fleury helped get Pittsburgh to the Eastern Conference Final and then Murray took over. If he isn't selected in the expansion draft then there will be other teams interested in his services.

Marc-Andre Fleury reportedly accepted the Penguins' request to waive his no-move clause for the expansion draft back in February.

The Penguins want to protect Matt Murray, but the decision to expose Fleury was difficult because the organization has so much respect for him. Fleury and Murray were emotional during Pittsburgh's Stanley Cup celebration on Sunday night. It looks like Fleury could be a member of the Golden Knights in 2017-18.

Marc-Andre Fleury showed his class by handing off the Stanley Cup to fellow netminder Matt Murray.

Sometimes there is a rivalry between netminders but not so with Fleury as he caught Murray by surprise as Murray was expecting other veterans to carry the Cup around before it was his turn. "He’s been a really important mentor for me," an emotional Murray said of Fleury. "He’s been so supportive over the last couple years. There’s no way I’m able to play as freely as I have been without Flower being there to support me. He’s meant everything to me. ...That made me pretty emotional, actually. It meant a lot to me. My rank on this team is way at the bottom. We have a lot of experienced players. Usually that’s how it goes. I was able to get it before some of the guys. That’s only because of Flower." Marc-Andre Fleury has likely seen his last game in a Penguins uniform but he remained classy to the end.

Marc-Andre Fleury has been waiting for another chance to get back into the crease in the playoffs.

Coach Mike Sullivan didn't want to talk about goaltending decisions after a 4-1 loss in Game 4 to Nashville. Still, it wouldn't be surprising if he went back to Matt Murray on Thursday night even though the young netminder has struggled at times against Nashville in the Stanley Cup Final. If the Penguins want to shake things up for Game 5, Fleury has been superb at home this year. He went 14-3-2 with a .928 save percentage at PPG Paints Arena in the regular season and had a 5-3 record with a .942 save percentage in the playoffs.
Jun 6 - 10:30 AM

Should the Pens switch to Marc-Andre Fleury for Game 4, he'll have to play much better than he did in his first game against Nashville this season.

Fleury allowed five goals on 23 shots in a horrible start against the Predators in October. After a similar dud in Game 3, the Penguins may or may not decide to shake things up in the crease. Still, they lead the Stanley Cup Final 2-1 and it's more than likely that Matt Murray will be back in goal on Monday night.
Jun 4 - 8:08 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury got his own net during Thursday's practice while the other was shared between Matt Murray and Tristan Jarry.

That might suggest that the Penguins are leaning towards starting Fluery on Friday despite him being yanked early in Game 3. Based on what Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said after the practice though, perhaps that would be reading too much into it. "Quite honestly, I haven't even gotten there yet," Sullivan said regarding who the Game 4 starter will be. "We're still trying to digest this game that we just played and we'll sleep on it and we'll make decisions on it moving forward."

Penguins coach coach Mike Sullivan declined to name a starter for Game 4 immediately following Wednesday's loss.

Marc-Andre Fleury has been leading the Penguins throughout the playoffs, but he was chased out of Game 3 after allowing four goals on nine shots. Under other circumstances that might not be enough for a team to change course, but most other teams don't have an alternative like Matt Murray. Murray was supposed to be the Penguins' starter in the playoffs, but Pittsburgh's plans changed because Murray suffered an injury during the pregame warmups of their playoff opener. Even once Murray was healthy, Pittsburgh stuck with Fleury because he had stepped up in the playoffs, but now it's a tougher question.

Ottawa managed to chase Marc-Andre Fleury out of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Fleury allowed four goals on nine shots by 12:52 of the first period. Matt Murray was called into the contest after Fleury surrendered that fourth goal. Murray was hurt during the warmups of Game 1 of the Penguins' first round series and this is consequently his first appearance of the 2017 playoffs.
May 17 - 8:39 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury will play between the pipes on Wednesday.

Fleury earned a 23-save shutout in Game 2 and now has an opportunity to help the Penguins take the lead in the Eastern Conference Final. He has a 2.32 GAA and .931 save percentage in 14 playoff games this year.
May 17 - 7:47 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury has the most playoff wins among active goaltenders with 62.

Patrick Roy is the all-time leader with 151 postseason victories. Fleury has kept the crease for the Penguins even though Matt Murray is healthy again because he has been excellent in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. He has nine wins along with a 2.32 goals-against average, a .931 save percentage and two shutouts.
May 17 - 4:33 PM

Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 23 shots en route to a 1-0 shutout of the Ottawa Senators in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final series, played in Pittsburgh Monday night.

Fleury's shutout was his second in his past three playoff games and the 10th of his career in postseason competition. Fleury has allowed only two goals in his past three games and made some outstanding saves against Ottawa Monday. His record in these playoffs is now 9-5. His goals-against average is 2.32 and he has a .931 save percentage. Needless to say, Fleury will get the start in the Pittsburgh net when the series shifts to Ottawa for Game 3 on Wednesday night.
May 15 - 11:16 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed two goals on 35 shots in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final.

The Penguins fell behind early when Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored the first goal of the game at the 14:32 mark of the opening frame. Evgeni Malkin was able to tie things up at one late in the third period, but Bobby Ryan scored the game-winning goal in overtime to sink Fleury and the Pens. Pittsburgh will look to eve up the series at home on Monday night in Game 2. Fleury will go into that game with an 8-5 record, a 2.49 goals-against-average and a .928 save percentage in the playoffs. Fleury has been terrific in the playoffs, but if Pittsburgh loses Game 2 on home ice, they could opt to start Matt Murray sooner than later.
