Marc-Andre Fleury to make first start since father’s death

Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will make his first start in more than two weeks Tuesday when the Golden Knights host the Chicago Blackhawks, coach Gerard Gallant confirmed.

Fleury left the team Nov. 26, and his father, Andre, died the following day at age 63 in Sorel-Tracy, Quebec.

Fleury rejoined the team Thursday in New York and served as the backup to Malcolm Subban the past two games. He hasn’t played since a 4-2 loss to Edmonton on Nov. 23.

In 20 appearances, Fleury is 11-6-2 with a 2.54 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.
