Fleury starred with the Canadian team that won a silver medal at 2003 World Junior Championship in Halifax.  Was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament, to the All-Star team, as well as Top Goaltender after a brilliant performance, particularly in Canada's 3-2 loss to Russia in the Final.

He was one of the few undrafted players (and the only such player on Canada) to compete in the 2003 World Juniors and would go on to become the first overall pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

Also played on the Canadian Junior team that lost 4-3 to U.S. in the gold medal game in 2004 in Helsinki.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
