Marc-André Fleury says he wants to play at least one more season
Marc-André Fleury does not intend to hang up his sake anytime soon.
The 37-year-old goalkeeper said The Press, a French digital newspaper from Montreal, that he wants to play in the NHL for at least one more season.
« I would like to play at least another season. I decided that recently, » Fleury said. another season and we’ll see after. »
It was a crazy season for Fleury. After winning the Vezina Trophy in 2021, the Vegas Golden Knights traded it to the Chicago Blackhawks. With Chicago set to fight for a playoff berth, the team fell flat and Fleury ended up waiving his no-trade clause to be dealt to the Minnesota Wild before the trade deadline.
In seven games with the Wild, Fleury posted a .921 save percentage. Minnesota currently sits third in the Central Division with a 47-21-7 record, one point behind the St. Louis Blues.
Fleury is in the final season of the three-year, $21 million contract he signed with the Golden Knights shortly after leading the team to the Stanley Cup Finals in their first first season in the NHL. He is eligible to enter the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career this summer.
Another season in the NHL and Fleury could leapfrog Patrick Roy on the NHL’s all-time winning list for goaltenders. He is currently third with 517 wins, 34 behind Roy at 551. Martin Brodeur leads the list with 691 wins.
