Marc-Andre Fleury has authored a Hall of Fame-worthy career, but it seems the 37-year-old isn't ready to close this chapter of his life yet.
"I decided that recently," he added. "I still enjoy playing. I still have fun, my body is still holding up, most of the time. But yes, another season and we'll see after."
Fleury is in the final season of his three-year, $21-million contract and is on track to test free agency for the first time this summer. The reigning Vezina Trophy-winner has posted a 25-22-5 record with four shutouts this season split between the Blackhawks and Wild. Since being traded to the Wild at the trade deadline, Fleury has a 6-1-0 record with a 2.59 goals-against average and .921 save percentage.
The Wild have clinched a playoff berth already meaning Fleury will get a chance to compete in the post-season for the 16th-straight year. In Minnesota Fleury splits time in the net with Cam Talbot, giving the Wild a formidable tandem that could carry the team on a deep run.
"It's fun to be part of a good team with a good bunch of guys," Fleury said. "Cam is a great person, he's a good goalkeeper, we get along well together. It makes things simpler. I think that together, the two of us, we should be playing [in the playoffs]. We will do our best to help this team."
