Golden Knights Take Marc-Andre Fleury Off Trade Market

Oct 13, 2020 1:43 AM

The Vegas Golden Knights are no longer looking to trade star goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, general manager Kelly McCrimmon said Monday.

"We see the goaltending position being incredibly important this year. Our goalies will be Robin [Lehner] and Marc-Andre. We all expect a schedule [next season] that's going to be very compressed. The importance of two goaltenders is really going to be valuable," McCrimmon said during a news conference announcing the signing of star free-agent defenseman Alex Pietrangelo.

Fleury has two years left on his contract with the Knights, with a salary-cap hit of $7 million. He has a limited no-trade clause.
