Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is known for having die hard sports fans. They support the Steelers, Penguins and Pirates in a way no other city does. Each Pittsburgh sports fan usually has a favorite within these three teams. They like the sport just a little bit more than the rest. And for those who love hockey and the Penguins are their team, then the news about Marc-Andre Fleury definitely made your day. According to some reports, the team has signed Fleury to a year four year contract extension. This deal is worth $23 million dollars, so we are sure Fleury is smiling with all of his fans.
He was the first overall draft pick in 2003 and in 2009 he went on to win the Stanley Cup. He is not perfect and has his days, but overall Fleury is a household name in Pittsburgh and fans have his back throughout his ups and downs. Christian Broda is not even a huge hockey fan, but he has heard of the goaltender. Maybe this is what he needed to give him the confidence to play his hardest. Either way, Penguin fans are excited to keep this guy around.
