As the Penguins gear up for a trip through the NHL playoffs on the quest to be the first team to 16 postseason wins, the city of Pittsburgh turns it’s eyes to their star netminder. Lucky for the Steel City that Marc-Andre Fleury’s wife Veronique Fleury (formerly LaRosee) knew their concern and helped keep him focused. Less than a week before the NHL playoffs kicked off, Veronique gave birth to daughter, Estelle just in time to make sure Marc-Andre would be fully focused and present for the first seeded Penguins playoffs. Estelle is rumored to have been born at almost 10 pounds and is the couple’s first child.
Marc-Andre Fleury and Veronique were married in 2012 after getting engaged in the summer of 2011. The couple was married in front of a slew of friends and family including dozens of Penguins teammates. Marc-Andre and Veronique first began dating at the age of 15 in 1999 the year before he started playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
