Kraken's Cale Fleury: Avoids arbitration
Fleury agreed to a two-year, $1.6 million contract with Seattle on Sunday, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.
Fleury was one of 22 restricted free agents who filed for salary arbitration Wednesday, but now a hearing won't be necessary. He picked up an assist, 13 blocked shots and 28 hits in 12 appearances with Seattle last season. Fleury is projected to occupy a depth spot for the Kraken again in 2023-24.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Makes rare appearance
Fleury logged two hits in 18:12 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Fleury had been scratched for 31 straight games entering Tuesday. With the Kraken securing a playoff spot last week, they've opted to rotate some of their defensemen out of the lineup -- Fleury and Jaycob Megna played for Justin Schultz and Carson Soucy on Tuesday. The 24-year-old Fleury has one assist, 28 hits, 13 blocked shots, 10 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating through 12 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Press-box regular
Fleury has been a healthy scratch for the last 14 games.
Fleury played regularly when Justin Schultz had an undisclosed injury, but the Kraken's good health on the blue line lately has prevented Fleury from drawing in again. A February trade to acquire Jaycob Megna from the Sharks likely puts Fleury at eighth on the defense depth chart, so there would need to be multiple injuries for him to have a chance to play again. The 24-year-old has one assist, 10 shots on net, 26 hits and 13 blocked shots in 11 outings this season.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Earns first NHL helper
Fleury registered an assist and three hits in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Devils.
This was Fleury's first game since Dec. 15, as he stepped in for Justin Schultz (undisclosed). Fleury's only other point in his 57 NHL appearances was a goal he scored for the Canadiens in the 2019-20 campaign. The defenseman has contributed six shots on net, 17 hits, seven blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating through seven outings this season, and his spot in the lineup should be fairly secure while Schultz is out....

Kraken's Cale Fleury: Opportunity may arise
Fleury has been scratched for 15 straight games, but Justin Schultz (undisclosed) left Tuesday's game versus the Oilers in the second period, per Emerald City Hockey.
The Kraken's success this season has led to very little roster juggling, especially among the defensemen. Fleury has no points through six appearances, with his last game coming Dec. 15. The 24-year-old would likely get the first look if Schultz misses time, but it's possible a call-up could also draw in -- Gustav Olofsson logged time in December when the Kraken were down two of their regular blueliners for a week....

Kraken's Cale Fleury: Doles out four hits
Fleury logged four hits in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Lightning.
Tuesday marked Fleury's fifth game of the year, and he got to play against his older brother, Haydn Fleury. The younger Fleury's set for an increase in playing time with Jamie Oleksiak (suspension) and Justin Schultz (upper body) unavailable, though it could still be a short burst of action. Through five appearances, Fleury has 12 hits, five blocked shots, five shots on goal and a minus-1 rating, and he has yet to log a point.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Awaiting season debut
Fleury has yet to appear in a game for the Kraken this season.
Fleury was expected to compete with Will Borgen for the last defenseman spot in the lineup. So far, it's been all Borgen, with the 23-year-old Fleury instead watching from the press box. Head coach Dave Hakstol has had little reason to shuffle the lineup -- the Kraken are allowing only 2.93 goals and 27.5 shots per game, indicating they've cleaned up both the defensive and goaltending woes that doomed their inaugural season. Fleury could get his first chance to play Friday versus the Wild if Jamie Oleksiak (undisclosed) can't suit up.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Secures two-way deal
Fleury penned a one-year, two-way contract with Seattle on Tuesday.
Fleury played in just nine games for the Kraken last season in which he registered four shots, 19 hits and 14 blocks while averaging just 14:34 of ice time. The 23-year-old defender has just one NHL point in 50 outings, so fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much in the way of offense out of him even when he is up in the NHL this year.... See More ...

Kraken's Cale Fleury: Dropped to minors
Fleury was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Thursday.
Fleury remains pointless in nine NHL games this year in which he has registered four shots, 19 hits and 14 blocks while averaging 14:34 of ice time. Even if the blueliner gets back into one of the Kraken's final two games this year, he is unlikely to offer much in the way of fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Called up from minors
Fleury was promoted from AHL Charlotte on Tuesday.
Fleury has played in just two games for the Kraken this season in which he registered three hits, four blocks and two shots in 12:59 of ice time. WIth Hayden Fleury (upper body) dealing with an injury, the younger Fleury will be brought up to serve as an emergency depth option heading into Seattle's two-game road trip.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Reassigned to AHL affiliate
Fleury was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Wednesday.
Fleury made his first two appearances with the Kraken this week, logging two shots on net, four blocked shots and three hits. The 23-year-old will likely spend the All-Star break with the Checkers, though he could return to the big club if Jamie Oleksiak (lower body) and Carson Soucy (lower body) are still out for next Wednesday's clash with the Coyotes....

Kraken's Cale Fleury: Ascends to active roster
Fleury will be promoted from the taxi squad to the active roster and play Tuesday against Boston.
Fleury will likely slot into a bottom-four role for Tuesday's contest. The 23-year-old defender hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2019-20, when he picked up one goal through 41 games with the Canadiens.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Recalled to taxi squad
Fleury was promoted from AHL Charlotte to the taxi squad Monday, Bob Condor of the Kraken's official site reports.
Fleury has tallied five goals and 12 assists over 17 appearances with AHL Charlotte this season. The 23-year-old played 41 games and recorded one goal for Montreal in 2019-20. He has not made an NHL appearance since signing with the Kraken on Aug. 13.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Hits waivers
Fleury was waived by the Kraken on Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
The 22-year-old defenseman was always going to be a long-shot for the big club's Opening Night roster. If Fleury passes through waivers unclaimed, he'll likely be assigned to AHL Charlotte to begin the 2021-22 season, although he could be a candidate for a call-up during the campaign.... See More ...

Kraken's Cale Fleury: Pens two-way deal with Seattle
Fleury signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Kraken on Friday, CapFriendly reports.
Fleury was a bit of a puzzling Expansion Draft pick by Seattle, as he didn't appear in a single NHL contest last season, and he only picked up six helpers through 22 AHL appearances. The 22-year-old blueliner will likely spend most of the upcoming campaign in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Surprise expansion pick
Fleury was taken by Seattle from Montreal in the 2021 Expansion Draft on Wednesday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
With all the speculation around the Kraken taking Carey Price (knee), the decision to grab the young blueliner certainly comes as a bit of a surprise. Considering the 22-year-old defenseman hasn't logged an NHL game since the 2019-20 campaign, fantasy players should probably expect him to be stashed in the minors to start the upcoming season....

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Rises to active roster
Fleury was added to Montreal's active roster Tuesday.
Fleury will be around as an emergency depth option for the Canadiens' playoff run, but he likely won't see any game action. He's picked up six helpers through 22 AHL appearances this year.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Needs to be consistent physically
AHL Laval head coach Pierre Bouchard wants to see Fleury be more consistently physical, Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Bouchard feels the 6-foot-1, 211-pound Fleury's biggest asset is being physical, something he's not doing consistently enough. "I walked by him this morning and told him: 'I'm going to be over you, under you and through you'," Bouchard said. "We're going to work at it. That's his colour (being physical). If he doesn't do that, he's useless. He knows that. He has to be a presence." Fleury, who spent 41 games in the NHL last season, was bypassed for a callup to Montreal prior to its six-game road trip. Instead, the Canadiens promoted Xavier Ouellet, who could get a chance to fill in for the injured Ben Chiarot (hand).... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Returning to AHL Laval
Fleury was demoted to AHL Laval on Saturday, per CapFriendly.
Fleury will likely continue moving between the taxi squad and the minors this season. The 22-year-old defenseman won't be on the fantasy radar, as he's not expected to make the big club's lineup.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Back on taxi squad
The Canadiens added Fleury to the taxi squad Thursday, per CapFriendly.
The 22-year-old spent time with AHL Laval to this point, earning two assists and a plus-3 rating across three games.

Fleury is expected to spend most of his time between the minors and taxi squad this season.... See More ... See Less
