Insider reveals the three teams Marc-Andre Fleury could sign with before trade deadline, as he searches for his fourth Stanley Cup championship

It’s been a special season for Marc-Andre Fleury, reaching incredible milestones. And now, an NHL insider drops an exciting update on his future in the league.

On Jan. 15 earlier this year, Marc-Andre Fleury earned his 552nd NHL win in the Wild’s 5-0 shutout win over the Islanders.

With the win, he surpassed legendary goaltender Patrick Roy for second place in the league’s all-time list of goalie wins.

And last week, he was celebrated as he played his 1,000th NHL game, and it just so happened to be against the Pittsburgh Penguins, for which ’Flower’ won three Stanley Cup championships.

Fleury, drafted first overall by the Penguins in 2003, remains one of the best and most experienced goaltenders in the NHL, and his future remains uncertain, with no one knowing how long he will stay with the Wild.

Rumors have been surrounding Fleury all season, and the Wild could reportedly be willing to give him up in a trade if they were to miss the playoffs.

Fleury has a no-trade clause in his contract, but he’s apparently willing to waive it if the Wild fall out and if it’s clear they will miss the playoffs before the trade deadline.

Fleury could get an important role as a contender.

Now, NHL insider Pierre LeBrun has pinpointed the three possible teams that Fleury might consider joining: the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Colorado Avalanche, and the Carolina Hurricanes.

”If Minnesota does fall out of it and it’s clear that they are out of it, Fleury potentially could look at 2-3 teams, among those options I’m told are the likes of Carolina, the likes of Toronto and the likes of Colorado,” LeBruin said on ’Insider Trading.’

This could be a memorable trade deadline, with one of the most iconic goalies of all time possibly making a push to win the Stanley Cup, perhaps for the very last time.
