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.
You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
