LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury will start in Tuesday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks at T-Mobile Arena, the team announced on Twitter.

The game will mark Fleury's first start since he took time off for the death of his father on Nov. 27.

According to an online obituary, Andre Fleury died at Hotel-Dieu de Sorel, a hospital in Sorel-Tracy, Quebec. 

Fleury rejoined the team last Thursday for his first practice since his father's death.
