Fleury performs in Edmonton.

Theo Fleury will once again showcase his skills in Alberta.

Fleury, a Metis, is perhaps best known for his days as a National Hockey League player with the Calgary Flames. During his 15-year NHL career, Fleury spent portions of 12 seasons with the Flames. He helped Calgary win the Stanley Cup in 1989, his first year as a pro.

Fleury, now 47, is trying to make a name for himself in the music industry. A country singer, Fleury released his debut album this past fall.

He'll be performing songs from that album titled "I Am Who I Am" at Edmonton's Century Casino on March 4. Fleury will perform along with his band called the Death Valley Rebels.

Fleury had also made plenty of headlines in 2009, when he co-wrote his autobiography called Playing With Fire. Fleury revealed for the first time in his book that he had been sexually assaulted by his former junior coach Graham James.

Fleury has since become an advocate for sexual abuse victims. Besides Calgary, Fleury also suited up for the Colorado Avalanche, New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks during his NHL career. He averaged more than a point per outing during his career.

Fleury appeared in 1,161 matches and earned 1,167 points.

Two nights before the Edmonton concert, Fleury and the Death Valley Rebels will perform at Casino Regina.

The band also has concerts scheduled for a pair of other Alberta venues later in March. They'll be in Medicine Hat on March 6 and Campbell River on March 11.
