Best NHL goalie from each franchise: Pittsburgh Penguins – Marc-Andre Fleury

If any hockey fan is making a Mount Rushmore of the best goalies of all time to ever play in the NHL, Marc-Andre Fleury would undoubtedly be included. He embodied everything anyone can ask for in a goalie with his unique style of energy every single time he deflects, blocks, and stops incoming pucks with such precision.

During his prime years with the Pittsburgh Penguins, he did his part for the franchise to win three Stanley Cup championships in 2009, 2016, and again in 2017. The goalie that made putting flowers on his amazing goalie masks cool, Fleury still owns the franchise record for most goaltender wins at 375.

After many amazing years with the Penguins and after his third championship with the team, Fleury decided to test the waters elsewhere due to the franchise wanting to go in a different direction at goalie. He entered the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft and landed with the Vegas Golden Knights.

After a few years with the Golden Knights, believe it or not, Fleury is still getting the job done on yet another new team, the Minnesota Wild. He is continuing his legacy in what is a guaranteed Hockey Hall of Fame career.
