What a memorable night for veteran goalie Marc-Andre Fleury of the Minnesota Wild! Before the game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Fleury was honored in a touching pregame ceremony for reaching the milestone of 1,000 NHL games, accomplished on December 31st.

In mid-January, he secured his 552nd victory, moving into second place on the NHL's all-time wins list, just behind Martin Brodeur (691).

A heartfelt tribute was arranged for Fleury, featuring a special video montage and the presentation of a custom mask depicting all four NHL teams he has played for, along with a silver stick.

During the video tribute, Fleury's emotions were evident, and the camera captured Penguins captain Sidney Crosby enjoying the moment, showing support for his former teammate and close friend.

This game marks the final matchup between Pittsburgh and Minnesota this season, potentially marking Fleury's last chance to face the team that drafted him fifth overall in 2003. Currently in the last season of a two-year deal with the Wild, Fleury's future remains uncertain.

As Fleury contemplates his next move, this emotional and unforgettable moment serves as a reminder of his impact and legacy in the NHL. Fans across the league hope to see him return for another season, as he remains one of the most beloved players and teammates in the game.
