THREE MORE YEARS FOR FLEURY

Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - SPORTS -

LAS VE­GAS The Ve­gas Golden Knights have agreed to terms with three-time Stan­ley Cup cham­pion goalie Marc-An­dre Fleury on a three-year con­tract ex­ten­sion worth an av­er­age of $7 mil­lion a year.

Fleury had one year re­main­ing on his con­tract. The ex­ten­sion will keep him in Ve­gas through the 2021-22 sea­son, mak­ing it pos­si­ble the 33-year-old Fleury could end his ca­reer with the Golden Knights. The Golden Knights se­lected Fleury in the 2017 ex­pan­sion draft from the Pen­guins. He won 29 games last sea­son, in­clud­ing his 400th ca­reer vic­tory. He reg­is­tered the best sta­tis­ti­cal reg­u­lar sea­son of his ca­reer with a goals-against av­er­age of 2.24 and a save per­cent­age of .927.

He ap­peared in all 20 of the team’s play­off games un­til a sto­ry­book sea­son ended with a loss to the Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals in the Stan­ley Cup fi­nal.
