As Marc-Andre Fleury approaches the end of his illustrious career, there are growing hints that this season may well be his last.

In a recent interview, he choked up while discussing the idea of playing his final game in Pittsburgh.


"I didn't want it to be in every city like, 'Oh, this could be your last game," Fleury said.

"That being said, I know it could be. So, at the same time, maybe I would have regret not doing those moments. So I've got to enjoy little things like that.
"But I don't know, I don't want to be thinking every day. I'm soft, too. I don't need all these emotions."


Pittsburgh: Still a Special Place for Fleury

As he mentioned, Pittsburgh is different. It was the city where he was drafted as the first overall pick in 2003, and he dedicated 13 seasons of his NHL career to the team.

Marc-Andre Fleury returns to Pittsburgh on Monday, possibly for the final time in his career.

Recently, he watched video from his NHL debut in 2003 and shared his memories of that remarkable night.

«Mike Lange said I found myself a home. He was right."


If indeed this turns out to be Fleury's final game in Pittsburgh, it promises to be an emotionally charged night.
