Top Cale Fleury News

  • Kraken's Cale Fleury: Hits waivers

    Fleury was waived by the Kraken on Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    The 22-year-old defenseman was always going to be a long-shot for the big club's Opening Night roster. If Fleury passes through waivers unclaimed, he'll likely be assigned to AHL Charlotte to begin the 2021-22 season, although he could be a candidate for a call-up during the campaign.

  • Kraken's Cale Fleury: Pens two-way deal with Seattle

    Fleury signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Kraken on Friday, CapFriendly reports.

    Fleury was a bit of a puzzling Expansion Draft pick by Seattle, as he didn't appear in a single NHL contest last season, and he only picked up six helpers through 22 AHL appearances. The 22-year-old blueliner will likely spend most of the upcoming campaign in the minors.

  • Kraken's Cale Fleury: Surprise expansion pick

    Fleury was taken by Seattle from Montreal in the 2021 Expansion Draft on Wednesday, Eric Engels of reports.

    With all the speculation around the Kraken taking Carey Price (knee), the decision to grab the young blueliner certainly comes as a bit of a surprise. Considering the 22-year-old defenseman hasn't logged an NHL game since the 2019-20 campaign, fantasy players should probably expect him to be stashed in the minors to start the upcoming season.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Rises to active roster

    Fleury was added to Montreal's active roster Tuesday.

    Fleury will be around as an emergency depth option for the Canadiens' playoff run, but he likely won't see any game action. He's picked up six helpers through 22 AHL appearances this year.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Needs to be consistent physically

    AHL Laval head coach Pierre Bouchard wants to see Fleury be more consistently physical, Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Bouchard feels the 6-foot-1, 211-pound Fleury's biggest asset is being physical, something he's not doing consistently enough. "I walked by him this morning and told him: 'I'm going to be over you, under you and through you'," Bouchard said. "We're going to work at it. That's his colour (being physical). If he doesn't do that, he's useless. He knows that. He has to be a presence." Fleury, who spent 41 games in the NHL last season, was bypassed for a callup to Montreal prior to its six-game road trip. Instead, the Canadiens promoted Xavier Ouellet, who could get a chance to fill in for the injured Ben Chiarot (hand).

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Returning to AHL Laval

    Fleury was demoted to AHL Laval on Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    Fleury will likely continue moving between the taxi squad and the minors this season. The 22-year-old defenseman won't be on the fantasy radar, as he's not expected to make the big club's lineup.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Back on taxi squad

    The Canadiens added Fleury to the taxi squad Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    The 22-year-old spent time with AHL Laval to this point, earning two assists and a plus-3 rating across three games. He'll return to the taxi squad where he's expected to provide depth heading into Saturday's game against Toronto. Fleury is expected to spend most of his time between the minors and taxi squad this season.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Shuffles to minors

    Fleury was assigned to AHL Laval on Monday.

    Fleury suited up in 41 games last season, producing a goal and 102 hits. However, he didn't make his season debut with the Canadiens before being sent down. The 22-year-old will have a larger opportunity to develop in Laval, likely in a top-four role on a consistent basis.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Assigned to taxi squad

    Fleury was added to the taxi squad Tuesday, Matt Cudzinowski of the Canadiens' official site reports.

    The 22-year-old is the lone defenseman on the Habs' five-man squad. He joins forwards Michael Frolik, Corey Perry, Ryan Poehling and goalie Charlie Lindgren. Fleury had one assist and appeared in 41 games for Montreal in 2019-20.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Skating with big club

    Fleury is on the ice as part of Phase 2 skates with the Habs.

    Fleury made his NHL debut this season and went on to make 41 appearances for Montreal in which he garnered one goal, 45 shots and 102 hits while averaging 14:21 of ice time. The 20-year-old blueliner figures to take on a bigger role with the club heading into the 2020-21 campaign, especially if Christian Folin is allowed to walk in free agency.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Sent to bus league

    Montreal assigned Fleury to AHL Laval on Friday.

    With Fleury on his way to the minors, the Canadiens are currently only carrying six defensemen on their roster, so he'll likely be back with the big club sooner rather than later. The 21-year-old rookie has managed just one goal while posting a minus-4 rating in 41 appearances with the Habs this season.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Sits out Saturday

    Fleury was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Golden Knights.

    Fleury has been replaced in the lineup the last two games by Brett Kulak. A reason for the lineup change has not been forthcoming, but it's understandable that head coach Claude Julien will sit the rookie blueliner on occasion. Whatever the reason, the two are sharing a spot on the third pairing, so neither player is likely to make a big difference for fantasy owners. Fleury does have 102 hits over 41 games, which may bring value to certain league formats.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Inactive Tuesday

    Fleury did not dress for Tuesday's game against the Red Wings.

    The 21-year-old Fleury had appeared in 33 of the previous 34 games before taking a seat in the press box for Tuesday's affair in Detroit. Brett Kulak took his spot on the third pairing. Fleury made a mistake that led to a goal in Monday's loss to the Jets, so it appears head coach Claude Julien wanted to give the rookie a break.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Goes home Thursday

    Fleury had two shots on goal over 12:03 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames.

    Fleury, who grew up in Calgary, returned home for the first time since donning a Montreal jersey. The 20-year-old defenseman has just one point (a goal) this season and extended his scoreless streak to 14 games in front of friends and family. He made noise early in the season with his physical style, registering at least one hit over the first 17 games while averaging three per game. That pace has dropped off recently. Thursday's game was the fourth in the last nine that he's failed to deliver a hit, and Fleury has just 12 during that stretch.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Healthy scratch Thursday

    Fleury was a healthy scratch Thursday because head coach Claude Julien wanted to give the rookie a break, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Julien said Fleury had a tough game against the Bruins on Tuesday -- who didn't in Montreal's 8-1 loss? -- so he reinserted Brett Kulak. Those who have grown accustomed to using Fleury for his physical style -- the 20-year-old has 53 hits over 19 games -- may not have to wait too long for him to be back in the lineup. Kulak finished at minus-3 and got caught up ice on at least one odd-man rush that led to a New Jersey goal.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Leading hitter among rookies

    Fleury leads all rookies with 51 hits, averaging three checks per game.

    The 21-year-old Fleury looks innocent enough, but he's catching NHL veterans off guard with his ability to hit. He registered 10 thumps in a game earlier this season, and his reputation grew recently after he delivered a first-period hit to Ottawa's Vladislav Namestnikov that forced the seven-year vet to leave Wednesday's game with a lower-body injury. Fleury leads Montreal in hits per game and ranks 30th in the NHL.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Has memorable moment in loss

    Fleury scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Devils. He added two hits and two blocked shots over 13:57 of ice time.

    Fleury showed off scoring skills not yet seen to this point in the season. After Phillip Danault won a battle and sent the puck back to the blue line, the 20-year-old rookie skated directly to the net, made one nice move to avoid a Devil, then shifted to his back hand and beat Mackenzie Blackwood. It was the Fleury's first NHL goal and point, coming in his 15th game.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Brings thump to Arizona

    Fleury recorded 10 hits, three blocked shots and one shot on goal in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

    If there's one thing that's marked Fleury's introduction to the NHL, it's the rookie's willingness to make use of his frame. The 20-year-old defenseman has 25 hits over seven games played and leads the team with 3.6 hits per game.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Returns to lineup

    Fleury returned to the lineup Sunday after a one-game absence and had two shots with four hits in a 4-3 loss to the Wild.

    Fleury, who missed Saturday's contest with an undisclosed injury, replaced Christian Folin on the third pair. Per usual, the 20-year-old defenseman threw his body around. He's recorded four hits in three of his four games played and has a total of 13 thus far.

  • Canadiens' Cale Fleury: All clear Sunday

    Fleury (undisclosed) is in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Wild, Jessi Pierce of reports.

    Fleury picked up an undisclosed injury and was forced to miss Saturday's game against the Blues. As evidenced by this news, he's returned to full health, and will draw into the lineup on the third pair, replacing Christian Folin.
