Monday was an eventful night for Marc-Andre Fleury as he not only backstopped the Vegas Golden Knights to their 45th win of the season, but he became just the 13th goalie in NHL history to record 400 career victories.
Just like every other Golden Knights’ road game this season there were plenty of traveling Vegas fans in attendance to cheer on their boys and they did not go unnoticed by Fleury. After removing the top half of his equipment after the game, Fleury went back up his team’s tunnel to sign some autographs for his admirers.
It’s little moments like this one that have made Fleury a fan favourite throughout his NHL career. Even during the team’s pre-game skate, the three-time Stanley Cup champion took some time out of his schedule to sign some autographs for the traveling Golden Knights fans in attendance.
We’re guessing Fleury is going to get quite the ovation from the home crowd when his name gets announced in the starting lineup on Wednesday night against the New Jersey Devils.
