DESPITE REACHING HIS OWN MILESTONE, MARC-ANDRE FLEURY PAYS TRIBUTE TO RYAN MILLER

MAY 2, 2021  (8H30)      TIM TUCKER
Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury just might be the most humble guy in all of sports. In his 17th year in the league, the 36-year-old is having a career year and just tied Roberto Luongo for the third most wins by a goaltender in NHL history with 489. During his media availability following a 3-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes, Fleury decided the more important thing was to pay tribute to fellow netminder Ryan Miller, who just played in what is likely the final game of his career barring injuries for the Anaheim Ducks, after announcing his retirement at the end of this season earlier this week.

"We had a lot of good battles when he was in Buffalo and I really respect him as a goalie and a person," said Fleury to end his interview.

The only two goaltenders ahead of Fleury and Luongo on the all-time wins list now are Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur.

Fleury has a record of 23-10-0 this season with a 2.08 goals against average and a .926 save percentage. He just might find himself as a candidate for the Vezina trophy after the season ends, and he'll still remain one of the most humble people you'll ever see. By the way, Luongo was asked about Fleury tying him and eventually surpassing him in wins.

"If I could only pick one guy in the NHL right now to pass me, it would be him," said Luongo. "One of the nicest guys I've ever had the pleasure of playing with."
