LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Almost eight months since being traded by the Vegas Golden Knights to the Chicago Blackhawks, goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is on the move again.

The Blackhawks on Monday traded the beloved goalie to the Minnesota Wild.

Both teams confirmed the trade later Monday morning. The trade will be a conditional 2nd-round pick that can become a 1st-round pick for Chicago.

To the dismay of many Golden Knights fans, VGK traded the three-time Stanley Cup-winner to the Blackhawks on July 27, 2021.

The Golden Knights are set to play the Wild Monday night in Minnesota. The Knights play the Blackhawks on Saturday in Las Vegas.
