Fleury Fan

As a kid, my five favourite hockey players were Joe Sakic, Mike Modano, Wendel Clark, Theoren Fleury, and Steve Yzerman.

Reasons?  First, no one can dislike Yzerman.

The other four?  They’d all been parts of my childhood as I had watched them all in their junior days with the Swift Current Broncos, Prince Albert Raiders, Saskatoon Blades, and Moose Jaw Warriors respectively.

As of last week, only one of the five was still playing.

As of last night, another may be back.

Now age 41, having been absent from the league for 6 years, Theo is taking another stab at it.  The Flames granted him a spot at training camp–the rest is up to him.

Last night, he scored the shootout winner.

Looks like he may be serious.

And that would be more than fine by this fan.

  1. I went to school with his new linemate. His girlfriend was my love interest in the school play. Me and fleury are clearly pretty close, it would follow.
