FLEURY CREDITS LEHNER IN HIS DECISION INTO JOINING BLACKHAWKS

AUG 4, 2021  (21H12)      T. TADI
It's been over a week since the Vegas Golden Knights unceremoniously dumped franchise goaltender and Vezina Trophy winner Marc Andre Fleury to the Chicago Blackhawks for... well for nothing, really. The Golden Knights kicked Fleury and his $7 million cap hit out the door for almost no return.

The way in which the deal was done had drawn ire from not only Vegas fans, but from fans across the NHL. It was reported that Fleury had not heard from GM Kelly McCrimmon about his trade before it was leaked on Twitter from insiders like Elliotte Friedman and Darren Dreger. The team hadn't been in communication with Fleury and agent Alan Walsh in the days and weeks leading up to the trade and were reportedly just as stunned as fans were when the news went public.

Now a member of the Blackhawks Fleury is talking about that day and just exactly how he found out about his controversial trade.
