Marc-Andre Fleury is getting to that age where retirement could be imminent, and his recent move could be hinting at his future plans.

Fleury Hints At Retirement With Move Related to Upcoming Canadiens Game

In a recent interview, Fleury revealed that he has invited dozens of his friends and family to be in attendance for the upcoming Wild-Canadiens game in Montreal. Fleury is from Quebec, and the move could be hinting at his potential last start in his home Province.

Marc-Andre Fleury will have 2 dozen family and friends at game tomorrow for what could be his final start in MTL: «More than usual for this one. But still got to get the win. Got to get the 2 points & that's what matters. And hopefully you can put on a good show for them.»

Fleury Nearing Retirement Age and Hints Have Been Dropped

At 38, the former first-overall pick is getting near the end of his career. He has played 985 career games, which is only less than Patrick Roy (1029), Roberto Luongo (1044), and Martin Brodeur (1226) for goaltenders in NHL history. Fleury is slated to hit the career mark of 1,000 games this season, which could be a large enough achievement to push him into retirement.


Either way, the large amount of family and friends coming to see him play begs the question as to whether or not this will be his final game in his hometown province.
