MONTREAL - Ahead of the 2019-20 campaign, we caught up with rookie defenseman Cale Fleury to learn more about his likes in a variety of different categories.
ONE RESTAURANT IN THE WORLD PEOPLE MUST TRY
SumoMaya. It's in Scottsdale, AZ. I went with my auntie. When I went, we didn't order anything. They just brought everything out to us. It was whatever the chefs wanted to bring. I probably had the best plate I've ever had in my entire life there. It was a seabass, but it was caramelized. That was really interesting. But in the AHL last year, the best place we went was Chima Brazilian Steakhouse in Charlotte, NC. They just walk around with a bunch of meat and you have a little button for when you want more. We had a really good desert with pineapple that had some cinnamon and brown sugar on it. It was perfect.
ONE CAR PEOPLE MUST DRIVE
I love cars. The car company Koenigsegg made the fastest car in the world a couple of years ago, so that would be pretty cool to try. It's the best of the best speed-wise, so I'd love to drive it.
ONE TV SHOW PEOPLE MUST WATCH
Game of Thrones. I didn't really get into it at the start. I thought it was maybe just all the hype, but then everybody in my family started to watch it and I sat down for an episode and thought it was pretty good. They have good character development and some heartbreak in there, so I enjoyed it.
ONE MOVIE PEOPLE MUST WATCH
I would say How to Train Your Dragon. All three of them have been really good. It's a good story. I like animated movies.
ONE ALBUM PEOPLE MUST ADD TO THEIR COLLECTION
It's kind of mainstream, but I like Post Malone. He's probably my favorite artist. Every time he puts an album out, every song is good.
ONE BOOK PEOPLE MUST READ
The Hunger Games. I read that as a kid, and they're probably my favorite books.
ONE ACTIVITY PEOPLE MUST TRY
Golf. I'm a pretty good golfer. Growing up, my brother and I would always head out and play. We had a golf cart at my house when I was younger, so we'd just rip out to the course and hit the range. I lived in Whitecourt at the time in Alberta, so we'd head to the Whitecourt Golf & Country Club. My favorite course, though, is in Scottsdale. It's a private course called Estancia Club. It was definitely the most prestigious golf experience I've ever had.
ONE PLACE PEOPLE MUST VISIT
I haven't really travelled too much, but Banff, AB is really nice. It has everything I like. The hikes in the area are really beautiful.
