Currently one of the most mentioned players in trade rumors by the trade deadline, Marc-Andre Fleury has made his choice: he will stay in Chicago.

The management of the Blackhawks promised the Quebec goalie that a trade would only take place with his consent. The upcoming unrestricted free agent was long expected to be traded, but it seems he'd rather not move his family before moving again this summer. Recall that Fleury was lucky not to be traded during a season in the NHL during his illustrious career, only during off-seasons.

The Capitals, Avalanche, Maple Leafs, Bruins, Golden Knights and Oilers seemed to have a particular interest in Fleury, but those teams will have to come up with a plan B.

Several rumors have it that the goalie from Sorel is retiring at the end of this campaign, which would lead him directly to the Hockey Hall of Fame. It remains to be seen if the idea of ​​playing for an aspiring team can make him want to continue his career, he no longer has much to prove with his three Stanley Cup rings, obtaining his first Vézina trophy last year and his third place in NHL history in wins for a goaltender, behind Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur.
