NHL Insider Links Future Hall Of Fame Goalie To Two Contending Teams

Published January 20, 2024 at 5:57 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury has cemented himself as one of the best of all time as he passed Patrick Roy for second all-time in wins this year. Now the future Hall of Famer could be on his way to a new team for one last chance at another Stanley Cup.

NHL Insider Links Fleury To Two Of The Best Teams In The NHL

Today, NHL insider Elliotte Friedman revealed that two teams that could be a good fit for Fleury at the trade deadline are the Colorado Avalanche and the Carolina Hurricanes.

Friedman on 32TP: "If we get to a point where the #mnwild are out, to me, Colorado is one of those teams that's going to ask, Marc-André Fleury, would you be interested in this?"

Cont'd: "The other team that screams Fleury to me is Carolina, that's the other team I look at and say, if Marc-André Fleury wants to go somewhere, they will ask him, does our situation interest you?"

Both teams could very well be good fits for Fleury. The Avalanche have leaned hard on Alexander Georgiev as they do not have a backup they feel like they can rely on. The Hurricanes meanwhile, have had a patchwork of goaltenders come through their system since Freddie Andersen went out with a blood condition.

Fleury Injury Could Throw Wrench In Trade Plans

All of this being said, Fleury left last night's game early with an injury after Panther forward Will Lockwood made contact with the veteran goaltender behind the net.

The Panthers forward will likely get a suspension on the play as it was revealed today that he will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety for the play.

Hopefully, Fleury will be healthy in time to make a difference for a contending team on the stretch run.
