Blackhawks acquire Vezina Trophy winner Marc-Andre Fleury originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
For the second time in five days, the Blackhawks have made a splash.
After acquiring four-time All-Star defenseman Seth Jones on NHL Draft day, the Blackhawks have reportedly landed Vezina Trophy winner Marc-Andre Fleury from the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for prospect Mikael Hakkarainen. There is no salary retention involved.
Fleury has one year left on his contract that carries a $7 million cap hit. He has a modified no-trade clause, which includes a 10-team no-trade list, and Chicago was not on that list.
Fleury, 36, went 26-10-0 with a 1.98 goals-against average, .928 save percentage and six shutouts this season with the Golden Knights. He also went 9-7 with a 2.04 goals-against average, .918 save percentage and one shutout in 16 postseason contests.
