Gotta See It: Fleury receives tribute, standing ovation and sets NHL record in his return to Vegas




Following a 2-1 win against the Vegas Golden Knights last night, Chicago goaltender and three-time Stanley Cup champion Marc-Andre Fleury has officially became the first goaltender in NHL history to beat all 32 teams in the league.





Fleury stopped 31/32 shots as the Blackhawks took down the Pacific-division leading Golden Knights.


The 34-year-old Fleury received a warm-hearted welcome back to the city of Vegas from both the fans, and the opposing players; especially his good friend Robin Lehner.





The South Nevada fanbase still love's the famed goaltender who nearly took them all the way in 2017-18 during their inaugural season.



"He built this city, he built sports in this city. he's the one who made us successful. I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it." - Former team mate Marchessault when asked about Fleury.





Here is the beautiful video tribute the T-Mobile arena played for Marc-Andre Fleury last night.



When Fleury initially became a Vegas Golden Knight during their inaugural 2017 season, Fleury, alongside other former team mates, re-created a famous scene from the Hangover movie on top of Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.


This was one of his most memorable moment's as a member of the Golden Knights.




And finally, a thank you to the Vegas fans straight from Fleury during an interview after the 2-1 win over his former team.


What an incredible moment from Las Vegas on Saturday night. It was a beautiful tribute and the fan's made this one of the most memorable moments of the 2021-22 season thus far.


Fleury won the Vezina trophy with the Vegas Golden Knights as the league's best goaltender during 2020-21's COVID-19 shortened season, and has plenty more in store for NHL fan's.
