UPDATE: (3/22/18 10:58) – Fleury and Reilly Smith skated at City National Arena this morning for about 30 minutes. Fleury was not wearing his goalie gear and he he Smith were stick handling and shooting at empty nets.

UPDATE: (3/22/18 10:30 AM) – Multiple sources have confirmed Marc-Andre Fleury did go through concussion protocol Tuesday night. He passed protocol but was not inserted back in the game as a precautionary measure.

The team still does not believe he suffered a concussion but remain cautious. Fleury is not with the team in San Jose. They have yet to rule out having him join the team in Denver.

It remains unclear when he may return but the concern that it could be season ending is considered minimal.

UPDATE (3/21/18 5:55 PM) – Oscar Dansk has been recalled by the Golden Knights. He will join the team in San Jose tomorrow. This confirms Fleury will miss at least one game.

ORIGINAL STORY

Following the 1st period of the Golden Knights game against the Vancouver Canucks, goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was removed from the game due to what is believed to be an injury.

I haven’t heard nothing yet. Trainers told me he’s not coming back tonight. That’s it. -Gerard Gallant

Fleury did not return to the bench the remainder of the game.

He did take a shot to the mask with approximately 10:00 minutes left in the period on the play shown below. The trainers did not examine Fleury at that time nor did they during the TV timeout that followed about four minutes later.

No, I have no idea. I thought it hit him, caught him in the chin. Either the cheek or chin. Hopefully he’s alright. Not sure if that had anything to do with it. Hopefully, it’s nothing with the head. -Brandon Sutter (Vancouver player who took the shot)

Multiple sources have confirmed to SinBin.vegas that Fleury was being examined for a head injury, likely following concussion protocol.

Fleury suffered a concussion in the Golden Knights fourth game of the season on October 13th. He missed 25 games during that stretch.

    I’m praying Fleury is OK. We can’t win the Stanley Cup without him

    Hoping it was only precautionary. They will need him in the playoffs obviously. The Golden Knights have nothing to lose by resting him and making sure he is 100% for the playoffs. I’m a Caps fan but if you love hocley like I do, you just can’t write this story. First year and will be in the playoofs and probably a high seed. You have to admire them. Damn it’s so good to be a hockey fan.
    GO CAPS!!

    Sit him for the next 5 games. Let Subban get some work in. Play him again in the Home finale which is the second game of a back to back. Then split the last 3 games with Subban.
