Fleury Scores First NHL Goal
Well, it took him until his 96th NHL contest, but he finally did it. Haydn Fleury scored his first NHL goal. It was actually quite the unassisted play, too.
The Ducks were attempting to clear the zone, but Fleury had a great keep at the line. He played the puck to himself, took a few strides to the top of the left face-off dot, and let his slap shot fly. The Ducks’ goalie, Ryan Miller, was undoubtedly screened on the play.
He played it off with a humble celebration like he had scored hundreds of NHL goals. But, he definitely cracked a smile on his way by the bench. It was a nice bright spot on an otherwise dull evening.
