While the chefs who spent so long creating it might not love to see Fleury hack of a hunk and chow down, they shouldn't be too miffed after the season he had in net.
In 46 games this season, the 33 year-old Fleury has saved 92 percent of shots against him and has a goals against average of 2.24. Both are career highs.
Fleury was the Golden Knights 29th and second to last selection in the 2017 NHL Expansion draft, but he's a big reason the team became the first expansion team to make the playoffs in their first season since 1979-1980.
The Golden Knights finished an impressive 51-24-7 this year, earning the fifth best record in the league, and were 8 points back of the top seeded Nashville Predators.
