AP – The Vegas Golden Knights have traded reigning Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The return of a minor leaguer Mikael Hakkarainen indicates it was a salary dump.

Fleury counts $7 million against the salary cap next season.

Chicago was not on the 36-year-old’s 10-team no-trade list.

Agent Allan Walsh says Fleury will be taking time to talk to his family and seriously evaluate his hockey future.

Among other goalie moves around the NHL, Vancouver’s Braden Holtby and San Jose’s Martin Jones will become free agents after going on buyout waivers.
