Marc-André Fleury Named NHL’s No. 2 Star of the Week

After winning all three of his starts, Blackhawks netminder Marc-André Fleury was named the NHL’s No. 2 Star of the Week.

From the NHL’s release:

“Fleury turned aside 88 of the 92 shots he faced, compiling a 3-0-0 record, 1.32 goals-against average, .957 save percentage and one shutout to backstop the Blackhawks (15-18-5, 35 points) to a perfect week and their fourth consecutive win dating to Jan. 8. Fleury yielded two goals in each of his first two starts, making 24 saves in a 4-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets Jan. 11 and 27 stops in a 3?2 overtime triumph against the Montreal Canadiens Jan. 13. He capped the week with 37 saves on 37 shots in a 3-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks Jan. 15, becoming the 14th goaltender in NHL history to earn at least 70 career shutouts. The 37-year-old Sorel, Que., native and reigning Vezina Trophy winner has played in 26 total games this season, going 13-11-2 with a 2.73 goals-against average, .915 save percentage and three shutouts.”

    He’s such a good goalie- and I know we don’t deserve to waste his talent as he pursues another cup… but let’s really hope for a dynamic trade, a win-win for 2 teams and MAF.
    Congrats on the honour of the week- well deserved!

    does he care about another cup though? didn’t he almost hang em up after getting traded? It seemed like what was important to him was being in one place and not having to move his family around all the time. I feel like if its up to fleury he will either retire or stay put. that being said, I do hope he’s ok with it and we get a first round pick back

    No way Fleury was going to leave millions of dollars on the table by retiring.
    NHL players play to get their name on the Stanley cup. Does Fleury care about winning another cup? …Are you serious?
    Why do Hawk fans think it’s up to players to decide if they will stay or go when it should be totally obvious that it is totally a management decision.

    obviously i realize that its not a players choice. but their were rumors that fleury was debating even playing with the hawks even though that money was on the table. crawford got signed by another team and decided to retire. yeah, i guess if its for a good chance at a cup he would be more motivated

    Gander…..not you specifically. There are actually hawks fans that believe that it will be up to the players whether or not they will remain blackhawks. Keep reading future comments and you will eventually read Ian posting that it will be up to the player.
    You are completely correct about these supposed rumors. No way realistically Fleury was going to lose 7 million dollars in a year to play in the nhl. Not saying impossible just not very likely.

    Also totally agree a first round pick would be nice.
    Management must trade Fleury. The system is pretty much bare.
