Marc-Andre Fleury got his bobblehead after all.
So did Reilly Smith, William Karlsson, James Neal, Jonathan Marchessault, Deryk Engelland, Nate Schmidt and Erik Haula.
Fleury is the first of a series of Golden Knights bobbleheads to be available to the public. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame is putting Fleury’s on sale beginning Thursday. The other players will be available for shipping beginning in May, although pre-orders are being accepted.
There are actually two Fleury bobbleheads, one in a gray Knights uniform, the other in white. The gray is currently available.
“We started the process in October and we worked with the company that has the licensing,” said Phil Sklar, co-founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, which is located in Milwaukee. “We had no idea at the time they’d be this popular.”
All bobbleheads of the Knights are officially licensed by the NHL and are part of the 2018 NHL Series. The limited edition dolls cost $30 apiece plus $8 for shipping and handling. The Fleury bobbleheads costs $40 plus $8 for shipping.
In addition to the players, there is also a bobblehead of Chance, the team’s mascot, which is different from the one which was given out Monday. The Chance bobblehead also sells for $30 plus shipping and handling.
