• At age three, Fleury's babysitter in his hometown of Carlyle, Saskatchewan, was current St. Louis Blues forward Brenden Morrow, then a star with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League. Fleury will try to follow in Morrow's footsteps and become just the third player from Carlyle, a town of approximately 1,400 people, to skate in the NHL (Jim McKenzie played 880 NHL games from 1989-90 to 2003-04).

• Fleury played Bantam and Midget AAA with Athol Murray College of Notre Dame in Wilcox, Sask. Brad Richards (New York Rangers), Vincent Lecavalier (Philadelphia Flyers), Jordan Eberle (Edmonton Oilers) and Tyler Myers (Buffalo Sabres) are among the 20 Notre Dame alumni currently playing in the NHL.
