Penguins send Fleury to minors
Pittsburgh Penguins: Marc-Andre Fleury, the No. 1 pick in the 2003 NHL draft and the Penguins' starting goalie at the beginning of that season, was reassigned to the team's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL) farm club Saturday.
The move means Sebastian Caron will begin the season as Jocelyn Thibault's backup in Pittsburgh. The Penguins traded for Thibault two months ago to become their starter. Caron was the Penguins' primary starter in 2003-04, going 9-24-5 with a 3.74 goals-against average.
