Fleury (illness) was selected by Seattle from Anaheim in Wednesday's NHL Expansion Draft.
After being acquired by the Ducks at the trade deadline last year, Fleury saw a significant uptick in ice time (20:39 per game) and registered two goals and one helper in 12 contests. Unfortunately for the 25-year-old blueliner, he figures to be hard-pressed to secure a spot in the lineup with Seattle given the team's defensive depth. The silver lining for Fleury could be the opportunity to play with brother Cale Fleury, who was also taken by the Kraken.
Fleury is out with a non-COVID-19 illness Saturday.
Fleury's season will end a game early due to the illness. He put up four points, 55 blocked shots and 63 hits in 47 games between the Hurricanes and the Ducks.

Fleury crept in from the point and buried a Troy Terry centering feed at the bottom of the left circle, putting the Ducks on top 2-1 early in the third period. The 24-year-old Fleury has two goals and one assist in 11 games since coming over from Carolina at the trade deadline.

The seventh overall pick in 2014, Fleury has posted just one point through 35 games this season while averaging 13:36 of ice time. The Hurricanes' blue line was getting crowded, too, as Jake Bean has seemingly secured a full-time job. In turn, Fleury will get a fresh start in Anaheim, where he may take on a larger role. Fleury's first chance for his Ducks debut will be Wednesday against the Sharks.
Fleury scored a goal on four shots, adding one block and one hit, in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Dallas.
Fleury unleashed a quick-one timer from the point that found its way through traffic, giving the Hurricanes a 2-1 lead with 6:56 left in the second period. It was the first point in 32 games this season for the 24-year-old, who potted four goals and 10 assists in 45 contests a year ago.
Fleury has failed to crack the scoresheet in 22 games this season.
The seventh overall pick in the 2014 Entry Draft, Fleury was originally considered a budding offensive defenseman after scoring 134 points over four seasons with the WHL Red Deer Rebels from 2012 to 2016. However, now in his fourth season with the Hurricanes, he has yet to find his footing offensively with just 23 points in 154 combined games. This season, he's averaging roughly 14 minutes of ice time on the Canes' third pairing and has frequently been a healthy scratch. Bottom line, Fleury should not be on anyone's fantasy roster right now.
Fleury was a healthy scratch for the third consecutive game Friday against the Blackhawks.
Fleury's demotion to the press box should not come as a surprise to anyone, as the 24-year old blueliner saw his ice time dip to a season-low 11:15 his last time out (Feb. 13 against the Stars), and he still hasn't collected a point through 12 games. For now, Fleury's spot has been assumed by rookie Jake Bean, who has three assists over his past three games. Put Fleury on your fantasy bench immediately, or drop him outright if you can find a suitable replacement on your league's wire.
Fleury was held off the scoresheet for the fifth straight game in Saturday's 4-1 win against the Stars.
Fleury continues to skate primarily on the team's third defensive pairing with rookie Jake Bean, an assignment that isn't likely to result in a multitude of opportunities to contribute offensively. Fleury has never scored more than 14 points in a single season, which makes him a fringe fantasy option at best in most formats.
Fleury signed a two-year contract extension with Carolina worth $2.6 million Tuesday.
The young defensemen posted career highs in goals (four) and points (14) across 45 contests last season. Fleury also piled up 48 blocked shots and 45 hits, providing some well-rounded - albeit modest - secondary production behind Dougie Hamilton and Jaccob Slavin on the back end. Those in the deepest of leagues may want to take a peek at the Saskatchewan native in the late rounds of next season's fantasy drafts.

Fleury picked up two assists in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Penguins.
The 23-year-old blueliner is on a bit of a roll, recording a goal and four points in the last four games. Fleury isn't a consistent scoring threat -- he has just four goals and 14 points through 44 games -- but a Canes offense that has received reinforcements for the stretch run could produce some additional opportunities for the whole roster, including stay-at-home defensemen.
Fleury scored his fourth goal of the season in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Canadiens.
Perhaps more importantly, Saturday was also Fleury's 17th consecutive game in the lineup -- a far cry from earlier in the season when he was sitting out long stretches as a healthy scratch. He's also seen a jump in his ice time as well, averaging roughly 17 minutes per game in his last eight contests, including a season-high 21:14 Saturday against the Habs. He's not a viable fantasy option yet, but he's finally seeing regular minutes, which is a step in the right direction.
Fleury (undisclosed) is expected to play Friday against the Rangers.
Fleury exited Tuesday's win over Nashville with an undisclosed issue, but whatever forced him from that contest evidently wasn't overly serious. He'll slot into his usual role skating on the Hurricanes' bottom pairing for Friday's contest.
Fleury was injured in Tuesday's game against the Predators, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Fleury fell awkwardly in the neutral zone after receiving a hit, and he ultimately exited the game.

Fleury provided an assist and four hits in Friday's 5-2 win over the Devils.
Fleury had the primary assist on Nino Niederreiter's opening tally in the first period. Half of Fleury's 10 points this season have come in the last eight games. He's added 35 hits, 44 shots on goal and 33 blocked shots through 34 games in a mostly limited role on the third pairing.
Fleury tallied a goal on three shots and blocked four shots in Saturday's 6-5 shootout win over the Golden Knights.
Fleury's marker at 10:48 of the third period tied the game at four. The defenseman has done well in a limited role lately, with a goal and three assists over his last six games. He's up to a career-high nine points in 32 contests this season. Despite the good run lately, the 23-year-old isn't likely to help fantasy owners much.
Fleury picked up an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Coyotes.
The 23-year-old defenseman has three helpers in his last five outings. Fleury is up to eight points in 31 contests this season, which matches his career-best output from 2017-18. The seventh-overall pick from 2014 has yet to make a big impact in the NHL -- fantasy owners need not rush to add the blueliner anytime soon.
