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. Sara Civian of The Athletic reports that an update on Fleury's status should be available Wednesday. If the defenseman isn't ready for Friday's contest against the Rangers, the Hurricanes will likely be forced to call up a blueliner from AHL Charlotte.
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.
Fleury suited up for Friday's game against the Ducks after serving as a healthy scratch for the previous four games, delivering three hits and one shot on goal.
Fleury has been in and out of the lineup all season as the Canes' seventh defenseman, but that looks to have changed now that Dougie Hamilton has been sidelined with a fractured fibula. With the team's top blueliner on the shelf for the foreseeable future, Fleury should start to see more regular ice time in the coming weeks. That said, he still only has five points through 25 games this season, so an offensive outburst is likely not in the making here.
Fleury suited up for the third consecutive game Friday against the Capitals after serving as a healthy scratch for eight of the previous nine contests. He saw ice time of 11:24 and launched four shots on goal, but failed to record a point in the 4-3 loss.
With just 22 of a possible 41 games under his belt, Fleury has found it difficult finding a regular spot in the lineup this season. He's currently platooning with Trevor van Riemsdyk for a spot on the third defensive pairing opposite Joel Edmundson, and obviously does not warrant any serious fantasy consideration given his current part-time role.
Fleury did not dress for Monday's game against the Maple Leafs, marking the seventh time in the past eight games he has served as a healthy scratch.
Fleury has now played in just 19 games this season, and is clearly the odd man out on the Canes' blue line right now with Jake Gardiner and Trevor van Riemsdyk holding down the bottom defensive pairing. With Fleury's one-year, $850,000 contract expiring after this season, don't be surprised if the team attempts to move him during the offseason, or sooner. At just 23 years old, Fleury should have a long NHL career ahead of him, but a change of scenery is probably the best thing for him at this point.
Fleury skated just 7:18 in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Lightning.
The good news is, this was Fleury's third consecutive game in the lineup after sitting out a five-game stretch as a healthy scratch. However, he still doesn't see much ice time when he does play, and his offense is almost non-existent, with just four points in 16 games this season. It's hard to think of any fantasy format where we would recommend him right now.
Fleury scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 8-2 victory over the Senators.
Fleury was the beneficiary of a fortunate bounce on his goal, sending a centering pass across the slot that deflected in off the stick of an Ottawa defenseman. It was his second goal in the last four games after being held one through his first eight games. The 23-year-old has been a healthy scratch on several occasions and has seen his ice time fluctuate when he does crack the lineup.
Fleury served as a healthy scratch for the fourth consecutive game Saturday against the Devils.
The writing was on the wall for Fleury back in mid-October, when he played just 5:59 against the Ducks on Oct. 18, then just 1:30 -- yes, you read that right, a minute and a half -- against the Blue Jackets on Oct. 24. Since then, with the return of Trevor van Riemsdyk to the lineup following a shoulder injury, Fleury has been the odd man out on the Cane's blue line. His fantasy value is essentially zero until further notice.
Fleury scored his first NHL goal in a 4-2 loss to the Ducks on Friday.
In his 96th career game, the 23-year-old finally put a puck in the net. Fleury's up to three points and 14 shots on goal in nine games this season, but he also skated only 5:59 in the game, as the return of Trevor van Riemsdyk allowed coach Rod Brind'Amour to go with seven defensemen. Fleury entered the night averaging 12:53 per game.
Fleury collected two assists while adding a blocked shot and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Panthers.
The points were the first of the season for the 23-year-old. Fleury had just nine points, all helpers, in 87 career NHL games coming into this year, but with the Carolina offense firing on all cylinders right now, even a depth defenseman like Fleury can get in on the action now and then.
Fleury inked a one-year, $850,000 contract with Carolina on Tuesday.
The fact that Fleury's deal is one-way means the youngster will finally get his shot to be a regular in the lineup this season. Whether the Saskatchewan native can secure consistent minutes remains to be seen, but the departure of Calvin de Haan at least opens the door.
Fleury received a qualifying offer from the Hurricanes on Tuesday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Fleury has underwhelmed since being selected seventh overall in the 2014 draft, posting nine assists without a goal over 87 career NHL contests. He'll have to fight for a bottom-pairing role in camp and could end up without regular NHL playing time if he doesn't show improvement.
The Hurricanes reassigned Fleury to AHL Charlotte on Friday, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.
The Hurricanes' season came to an end when they were swept by the Bruins in the Eastern Conference finals Thursday, so Fleury will head to the minors to try and help the Checkers advance to the Calder Cup finals. The 2014 first-round pick only notched one assist in 20 appearances with the big club this season, and will likely once again be deployed sparingly in 2019-20 as Carolina's seventh defenseman.
Fleury was promoted from AHL Charlotte on Monday.
With Calvin de Haan (upper body) heading back to Carolina for further evaluation, Fleury will slot into the lineup for Tuesday's road matchup with Toronto. The 22-year-old appeared in 17 games for the Canes this season, in which he tallied one helper, 15 shots and a plus-5 rating while averaging a mere 12:52 of ice time. Considering the team has just three regular-season games remaining, the defender will likely stick with the club heading into the playoffs.
The Hurricanes sent Fleury back to AHL Charlotte on Thursday.
Fleury was with the Hurricanes on emergency conditions, so he will head back down with Calvin de Haan (eye) back in action against the Lightning. Until he can find a permanent spot on the top club, the 22-year-old blueliner shouldn't garner much consideration from a fantasy standpoint.
The Hurricanes summoned Fleury from AHL Charlotte on Tuesday.
The seventh-overall pick in 2014 has yet to find permanent footing at the top level, with Tuesday's promotion marking the fifth time since Jan. 4. In terms of fantasy, the 22-year-old blueliner doesn't figure to provide much upside while at the top level after notching just five points over 23 games with the Checkers this season and only eight points (all assists) over 67 contests with the Hurricanes last year.
The Hurricanes reassigned Fleury to AHL Charlotte on Tuesday.
With Calvin de Haan back from an upper-body injury, Fleury's services were no longer needed with the big club. He slotted into two games during this NHL stint, recording a plus-1 rating and two shots on net.
Fleury was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Wednesday.
The Hurricanes are likely viewing Fleury as a reinforcement option with Calvin de Haan and Justin Faulk both day-to-day with their respective upper-body injuries. A fearless young defenseman, Fleury has nine assists standing as his point total through 79 career NHL contests.
