The 18 year old defenceman had 38 points in 70 games this past season.
Fleury talked to The Drive FM last week after the NHL Combine, which he said went very well.
The ICE leader says he thought his meetings with clubs went as good as they could and he was very pleased with his fitness testing.
ICE Forward Brett Davis was taken 163rd overall by the Dallas Stars.
Davis notched 33 points in 59 games with Kootenay and Lethbridge last season
