Vegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was placed on injured reserve on Sunday with a concussion.

The 32-year-old netminder played 59:44 in the Golden Knights’ loss—the franchise’s first—against the Detroit Red Wings on Friday.

Fleury has a history of concussions during his 14-season career. He’s started all four of Vegas’s games this season, going 3-1-0 with a .925 save percentage and 2.48 goals-against average.

It appears Malcolm Subban will get the start on Sunday night against the Boston Bruins, his former team, in Fleury’s stead.

The Golden Knights also placed forwards Jonathan Marchessault and Erik Haula on IR and recalled goalie Maxim Lagace and forwards Vadim Shipachyov and Alex Tuch from AHL Chicago.
