Fleury expected to return as Knights face Hurricanes

LAS VEGAS -- Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury is slated to make his return from a concussion Tuesday night when surging Vegas hosts the slumping Carolina Hurricanes at the T-Mobile Arena.

Fleury, a 14-year NHL veteran, has missed 25 games since Oct. 13, when Detroit Red Wings winger Anthony Mantha crashed into him. Mantha's knee collided with Fleury's head, resulting in the third concussion of the goaltender's career.

The Golden Knights have succeeded with Malcolm Subban, Oscar Dansk and Maxime Lagace adequately taking his place. The Knights went 16-8-1 without Fleury. They are in second place in the Pacific Division with a 19-9-1 record and 39 points, four behind the Los Angeles Kings.
