Wednesday night at the NHL awards, Marc-Andre Fleury's career as a Penguin officially came to a close.

The Vegas Golden Knights selected Fleury to be their guy between the pipes and it was a very emotional moment for the Penguins and their fans.

After he was selected by the Golden Knights, the Pens honoured him in a couple of ways on Twitter.

The first was a tribute video and the second was a subtle change to the team's Twitter name.

Notice the flower emoji?  Well, that's for "Flower", also known as Fleury.

Stick tap to the Penguins for honouring their former franchise-altering goalie.

Coincidentally, 14-years ago on June 21st, Fleury was drafted by Pittsburgh, so it's only appropriate that on the same day he would be selected by Vegas, a new team hoping for immediate success.

When the NHL schedule gets released on Thursday, every Penguins fan will probably circle the game the Golden Knights come to town because we imagine the team will have something very special planned for Fleury that night, too.
