Calgary, AB - Calgary Flames General Manager Darryl Sutter announced today that Theoren Fleury has been released from his try-out agreement.
“I believe Theoren did a great job and should be proud, especially considering all the factors including age, time away from the game and lifestyle change,” said Sutter. “This is not a hockey story; it’s a life story. Our agreement with Theoren was that he had to be one of our top six wingers and there were never any intentions of assigning him to the American Hockey League.”
“I am very thankful to Darryl and the Flames organization for following through on the commitment to provide me with this opportunity,” said Fleury. “I said in the beginning that no matter what the outcome, this would be a success story. I intend to take the next few days to review this experience and make decisions with my family regarding next steps in my life.”
