Insider reveals Marc-Andre Fleury may soon be traded

Published January 17, 2024 at 11:09
Marc-Andre Fleury is most likely in the last year of his illustrious National Hockey League career and even with that being the case, it's obvious he can still play the game. At what point do the Minnesota Wild look at trading him to give him one more run at a cup though? It might be coming up.

According to Pierre LeBrun of TSN on Insider Trading, LeBrun listed the New Jersey Devils as a potential landing spot given the fact that they're supposed to be a contender and seem to desperately need goaltending help; take a look.

But there's some obvious teams to think about, Toronto tried to trade for him two years ago. Different GM, but nevertheless, the Leafs still have question marks in goal. Edmonton, how about a mentor to Stuart Skinner? New Jersey, they haven't had saves all year. Carolina, how about a mentor to (Pyotr) Kochetkov? So, there are some obvious places where Marc-Andre Fleury would fit if he has a meaningful role, he's not going to waive to be a backup who doesn't play. We'll see where this goes.

Among other places LeBrun mentioned that the Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers, Carolina Hurricanes and New Jersey Devils could all be fits for different reasons.

Fleury, 39, has played in 22 games for the Wild holding a record of 8-9-3 with 1 shutout a 2.97 goals against average and a .897 save percentage. His numbers don't look flattering but the Wild haven't been doing well this season and he can still add value to a contending team that needs help in goal.
