Marc-Andre Fleury quashes rumours, says he wants ‘to stay in Vegas’ for rest of career

With his agent posting a controversial photoshopped image on his Instagram criticizing Vegas Golden Knights head coach Peter DeBoer, it seemed that Marc-Andre Fleury’s days with the organization are numbered. But not so fast!

Despite losing his starting gig to Robin Lehner, he wants to remain with the Golden Knights not just for the duration of his contract, but also the remainder of his NHL career. Whether Lehner re-signs with the team or not will not change his opinion.

“I want to stay in Vegas…I don’t know what the future holds, but I’ve loved every moment since I got here.” said Fleury.

He is also aware that his fate is out of his hands, and he could be traded elsewhere regardless of his aspirations.

“I understand the business side of hockey, and that I might have to be moved…But that’s why they (the front office) are the ones making the decisions.”

The Golden Knights initially acquired Fleury by selecting him in the NHL expansion draft back in June 2017.

The 35-year old has amassed a 91-50-14 record, 2.58 goals-against average, and .915 save percentage in 156 games with the Golden Knights over three seasons.
