After 17 big-league campaigns, three Stanley Cups, and a career year at age 36, Marc-Andre Fleury is a Vezina Trophy winner.
The veteran Vegas Golden Knights netminder has been named the winner of the 2021 trophy for the league's top goaltender, capping off an impressive season from the former Pittsburgh Penguin.
Fleury's Vezina win comes on the first nomination of his near-two-decade career, rewarding what's been a sterling run so far in Vegas.
After a 13-year tenure in Pittsburgh that saw him contribute to three titles after being drafted first overall back in 2003, Fleury put forth one of the best seasons of his career when he first arrived in the desert in 2017-18, finishing fifth in Vezina voting that year.
His career-best .927 save percentage that season was topped only by his .928 this season, accompanied by a career-best 1.98 gaols-against average and six shutouts.
The elite 2020-21 showing saw Fleury take home the William M. Jennings Trophy alongside Robin Lehner this year as well, and also saw "The Flower" move to third in all-time wins by an NHL netminder.
