Marc-Andre Fleury Reportedly Willing To Accept Trade To Canadian Contender

All eyes are on veteran goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury of the Minnesota Wild as the NHL Trade Deadline approaches. There's growing speculation that if the Wild aren't in contention by the deadline on March 8, Fleury could be traded to a contending team.

Will The Minnesota Wild Make The Playoffs?

The Wild's playoff chances are uncertain, especially after their sluggish start to the season led to the firing of head coach Dean Evason. Despite some improvements, the team's performance remains inconsistent, leaving the door open for GM Bill Guerin to consider trading assets.

Fleury, in the final year of his contract, is at the center of trade talks. Many speculate this might be his last season, and his name is expected to resurface in trade rumors as the deadline nears, as it has in previous years.

Last week, NHL Insider Pierre LeBrun added fuel to the fire by reporting that Fleury would be open to a trade to the Toronto Maple Leafs, who have faced uncertainty in their goaltending situation this season. The Leafs have cycled through several starters, including Ilya Samsonov, Joseph Woll, and Martin Jones. Samsonov struggled and was waived earlier in the year, while Woll has been sidelined with an ankle injury for several weeks.


According to reports G Mark Andre-Fleury would be open to considering a trade to the Leafs.

If Fleury were to join the Leafs, it would mark the first time in his career playing for a Canadian-based NHL team.
