Longtime Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, who is expected to head to the Vegas Golden Knights in Wednesday's NHL expansion draft, left an impressive parting gift for kids in one area neighborhood.

Fleury financed the construction of a playground at the Sto-Ken-Rox Boys & Girls Club in McKees Rocks.

It includes playground equipment on rubberized flooring and a water park. Fleury also donated sporting equipment, games, educational materials and electronics.

“It's been something we've been thinking about for a little while, and we were just thinking about something to give back,” Fleury said in a press release. “The people of Pittsburgh have been so good to me, so to build something fun, something for the kids, I'm glad it all came out and the kids seem to like it.”
