Marc-Andre Fleury has his 500th career NHL win on Thursday

The Chicago Blackhawks has been a big disappointment so far in 2021-22. Fortunately, one of the team’s bright spots was Marc-Andre Fleury, who they acquired in the pre-season summer. He won the Vezina Trophy as the tournament’s top goalkeeper last year and will advance to the Hall of Fame as one of the greatest ever to do so.

The Hawks played in Montreal on Thursday night and need to win as badly as they ever have before. Canadians are terrible and if the Hawks can’t beat them, they won’t beat many others. Jonathan Toews scored his first goal of the season to lead Chicago to victory but it was only the game’s second big story because of Fleury.

It was the 500th win of Marc-Andre Fleury .’s career in a 2-0 victory. He’s only the third goalscorer in NHL history to reach that milestone as only Martin Brodeur and Patrick Roy lead him in total wins. It’s possible to surpass Roy’s 551 total for Fleury depending on his condition beyond this year but Brodeur’s 691 is certainly out of reach.

Seeing Fleury do this in a Chicago Blackhawks sweater is incredible for many reasons. It’s great to see elite players achieve impressive milestones like this while representing our great city. It was interesting to see him do this in the town that Martin Brodeur grew up loving and the team that Patrick Roy played for so many of his victories.

This is a major contract of the National Hockey League. As mentioned before, he’s only the third person to ever do it so everyone will be praising him. He certainly got it across the league from teammates and beyond.

Marc-Andre Fleury is one of the greatest goalkeepers in the history of the sport.

By the time all is said and done (if not already), Patrick Kane will be considered the greatest Chicago Blackhawks player ever. Seeing him play with Fleury and congratulating him publicly on Twitter is something special for hockey fans. Greatness recognizes greatness on and off the ice.

Even Martin Brodeur took time off the night to congratulate his former teammate on Team Canada. Now, this is something very special to this game as Brodeur is the greatest goalkeeper ever to live and he is aware enough to show love to the other greats at Fleury.

Even the Montreal Canadianiens fans present knew what was going on. Their team has lost (in a very difficult season so far) and they are still classy enough to name him as the clock ticks zero on his 500th career win. It was a great moment for both the franchise and the National Hockey League as a whole.

Fleury is one of the great players and men we’ve ever had in this game. He has never missed the playoffs and we can only hope that this streak continues this year. If the Chicago Blackhawks are too far from the deadline, it might be wise to grant him that but it’s great to see him do this to the Hawks.
