Marc-André Fleury would agree to a transfer to this Canadian team

Minnesota Wild goaltender Marc-André Fleury has been at the center of trade rumors for some time, and it's unlikely that the rumors will die down by the National League trade deadline.

The Quebecer is playing the final season of a two-year contract worth $3.5 million per year. He has a complete no-trade clause.

According to The Athletic's hockey expert Pierre LeBrun, Fleury would agree to be traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs if the interest was mutual.

The Queen City club has used three goalkeepers since the start of the season, namely Ilya Samsonov, Joseph Woll and Martin Jones. The first has had a season with ups and downs, while the second had to miss several weeks due to an ankle injury.

For his part, Fleury is having a good season as second violinist behind Filip Gustavsson. He maintained a 10-9-3 record, a .902 save percentage and a 2.83 goals-against average.

If the Sorel-Tracy native joins the Leafs, it would be his first time wearing the uniform of a Canadian-based team. Fleury played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Vegas Golden Knights and Chicago Blackhawks before joining the Wild in March 2022.
