The 2021-2022 season could be the last season for Marc-Andre Fleuri

The 2021-2022 season could be the last season for Marc-Andre Fleuri

Marc-Andre Fleury had an eventful summer. His trade from the Las Vegas Golden Knights to the Chicago Blackhawks wasn’t very easy, although he was considering retirement when he heard the news. The problem was not with playing for the Hawks, but with getting his family to move with him to a new city. His love for hockey finally overcame him and he chose to play another season.

It’s clear that Florey still has some good hockey to offer. Yes, he will be 37 on November 28, but he just won his first Vézina Cup with 1.98 goals against average and 0.928 efficiency rate. These are simply exceptional numbers in hockey 2021.

Florey has nothing else to prove. He has won the Stanley Cup more than once with the Penguins and now the Vézina Cup with the Golden Knights. However, I am convinced that he had his eyes on the upcoming Olympics and that the participation of NHL players in them played a role in his decision.

In 2010, Fleury was part of the team that won the gold medal in Vancouver, but he did not play a single minute, as playing time was split between Martin Prudeur and Roberto Longo. Fleury was later overlooked at the 2014 Olympics as well as the 2016 World Cup. The chance to represent his country one last time is huge, and he totally deserves to be a part of the upcoming version of Team Canada.

It’s clear that Florey’s career is coming to an end. He admits it himself, taking the rest of his career one season at a time and doesn’t see much in the future. His current contract, which he signed in 2018 with the Golden Knights, expires at the end of the 2021-2022 season. From that moment on, he would have the luxury of choosing whether he wanted to continue or whether he would prefer to move forward.

One thing is for sure, as long as Marc-André Fleury wants to play hockey, the NHL team will be willing to make room for him. He’s an exemplary teammate, an exceptional athlete and totally human. He’s one of the few athletes who gets a chance to retire when they feel like it, without ever being seen.
