Future Watch: Haydn Fleury Rookie Hockey Cards, Hurricanes – Haydn Fleury was selected by the Carolina Hurricanes with the 7th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. This 6-3, 220-pound prospect can be a force of nature when he’s rolling in a game and fans have a lot to look forward to when he becomes an NHL veteran.
In 2013-14 Fleury was voted best defenseman while playing for Team Canada in the U18s. He walked away with a bronze medal but now he was on the map.
Playing four seasons plus for the Red Deer Rebels, this big blueliner managed to compile 134 points in 259 games in his WHL career. He had nothing left to prove. He was a very decorated player and he turned pro.
In 2016-17 he played for the Charlotte Checkers in the American Hockey League. In his first full season, he played 69 games and had 26 points. That was a great start. He also managed to play in five playoff games. He didn’t score but he got invaluable experience.
In his first 33 NHL games, he only has five points but he is holding his own. The Hurricanes are a playoff bubble team and now at the age of 21 he’s progressing nicely.
Here’s Fleury showing off the physical side of his game:
