Marc-André Fleury is in his first season as a Chicago Blackhawk, and so far, he’s doing alright. He’s won 19 out of 43 games played this year, with a save percentage close to 91.
But now, nearly a year after joining the Blackhawks, his time at the organization could come to a close. According to Sportsnet insider Elliotte Friedman, Fleury is open to a move if it’s to a team that has a chance to win the Cup later this year.
Fleury feels he could make a difference and want to give it a go, and if a team that ticks all the boxes also makes a deal with Chicago, the goalie could leave.
So, which team is mentioned as Fleury’s next possible destination? The Toronto Maple Leafs and Colorado Avalanche are both interested, with Edmonton Oilers and Minnesota Wild also in the mix.
Fleury doesn’t just want to go and sit on the bench, but all teams mentioned have, to some degree, had some troubles in the goalie department this year. It could be an exciting week heading into the trade deadline.
