Marc-Andre Fleury, Golden Knights do Vegas 'Hangover' style

If the Vegas Golden Knights are a wolfpack, Marc-Andre Fleury is their leader.

Clad in their sweet new home jerseys, Fleury and defensemen Jason Garrison, Deryk Engelland and Brayden McNabb headed up to the roof of Caesar's Palace where Fleury delivered his best Zach Galifianakis impression of the actor's character Alan Garner from the 2009 comedy classic "The Hangover."

Tweet from @GoldenKnights: How 'bout that ride in?

"I'd like to say something that I've prepared tonight," Fleury starts, feigning short breath as the line is delivered in the move. "How about that ride in? I guess that's why they call it Sin City. Ha ha."

From there, the four went to take in the sights of their new home city, visiting the "Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas sign" and UFC headquarters, then meeting with fans and one of the myriad Elvis Presley impersonators along the strip. They closed it with a helicopter ride through the desert.

If Fleury's acting seems natural, it might be because he's done it before. As a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Fleury famously impersonated francophone goalie Denis Lemieux from "Slap Shot."

The goalie closed the video with another perfectly delivered line from "The Hangover" that would give Galiafinakis a run for his money.

"It's not a man-purse, it's a satchel," Fleury said. "Indiana Jones has one."
