ESPN Analyst makes NHL goaltender the offer of a lifetime, which he gladly accepted

ESPN Sports Analyst Pat McAfee had the great Marc-Andre Fleury on his show today and he had lots to say about the veteran goaltender.

He started off by talking about how Fleury needs to give himself more credit on the career he's put together. McAfee believes that Fleury is destined to be named to the Hockey Hall of Fame. With his championships and his resume, combined with his recent passing of Patrick Roy for 2nd in wins in NHL history, I can't argue there.

This is something that many fans can agree on. It takes a lot of skill and dedication to the game of hockey to have a career like the one that Fleury has put together. Putting up 552 wins across twenty seasons is truly elite. On top of that, Fleury has three Stanley Cup Championships.

Not only does Fleury play his heart out every time he steps onto the ice, the thirty-nine year old still has fun out there, especially when playing former teammates. McAfee applauded Fleury for being such a loveable character both on and off the ice.

McAfee concluded the show with extending Marc-Andre Fleury an offer of a lifetime. He excitingly told Fleury that if he can get a goalie goal this season, he will receive a 250k donation for the charity of his own choice!

Fleury gladly accepted the offer so you can stay on goalie goal watch with the 39-year-old and expect him to shoot anytime his team has a lead late in the third period this season with the opposing net empty.
