The Vegas Golden Knights announced today that number one goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury has been placed on injured reserve. It was revealed that he suffered yet another concussion, and he could be out for quite some time.
Fleury has been lights out through 4 games - posting 3 wins, a 2.48 goals against average and .925 save percentage. He's the face of the new franchise and his loss will undoubtedly set this team back this year. George McPhee probably isn't too concerned - he doesn't expect this team to be competitive in year one, but for the fans and players, it surely is a hard pill to swallow.
That being said, Malcolm Subban, recently picked off of waivers from the Boston Bruins, is set to start tonight against his former team for the very first time.
It will only be the 3rd NHL game for the former 1st round pick (24th overall). He has an ugly 5.82 GAA and .727 save percentage in the 2 losses - but hopes to turn it around starting tonight against Boston. He has a chip on his shoulder and is ready to prove the team that drafted him that they were wrong to give up on him.
