The moment a majority of Pittsburgh Penguins fans were dreading has come and gone and Marc-Andre Fleury’s time with the team has come to an end.

Selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the Expansion Draft on Wednesday night, Fleury is off to a new city for the first time in his 13-year NHL career.

Minutes before he was officially selected by the Golden Knights, Penguins centre Evgeni Malkin shared a photo on his Instagram account letting his former teammate know he’s going to miss him.

Following the announcement, the Penguins Twitter account shared a photo of their former goalie in his new threads, and it’s safe to say they were not a fan of what they were looking at.


Fleury got a loud ovation when his name was announced on Wednesday night and Sidney Crosby gave his former teammate a pretty awesome recommendation.

You can bet Fleury is going to get a massive standing ovation when the Golden Knights visit the Penguins next season.
