Today after the Pittsburgh Penguins Won their 5th Stanley Cup in franchise history longtime netminder Marc-André Fleury has agreed to waive his No-Movement Clause in his current contract.
This story dates far back as February as Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports in Canada originally reports.
For those who don’t know TVA Sports provides another means of hockey broadcasting to the French Speaking Canadian audience, much like RDS.ca does.
According to several sources close to the story, Fleury made this decision in contingent of being exposed at the upcoming expansion draft that is due to take place next week at T-Mobile Arena.
Fleury played in a total of 15 games in this past season’s Stanley Cup Playoffs posting a 9-4-2 record. He managed to help the Penguins get thru rounds 1 and 2 before surrendering the net to rookie Matt Murray in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The veteran goalie captured his 3rd Stanley Cup with the Penguins after they defeated the Nashville Predators in game 6 by a 2-0 final.
This piece is a follow-up to a post I wrote nearly a month ago about the possibility that Vegas is the odd’s on favorite destination landing for the veteran goaltender.
