Claude Giroux has been added to Canada's World Cup team.

Giroux wasn't sure if he would make the team after he was left off Canada's 2014 Olympic roster and because he recently had hip and abdominal surgeries. "I'm feeling really well and there's no issue for me being ready for the tournament," he said regarding his recovery. Giroux added that he was honored to be chosen for the squad.

Claude Giroux had successful hip and abdominal surgery on Tuesday, according to Flyers GM Ron Hextall.

Giroux is expected to be back at 100 percent in about 10-12 weeks, which means he shouldn't miss any part of training camp in September. The 28-year-old had 22 goals and 67 points in 78 games in 2015-16.

Claude Giroux will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair hip and abdominal tears.

The Flyers expect him to return to full activity in 10-12 weeks. Giroux should be ready for training camp if that timetable holds up. He picked up 22 goals and 67 points in 78 games during the regular season even though he was ailing for most of it.

Although Claude Giroux insisted he was healthy, he was reportedly dealing with a hip injury and sports hernia that he's considering having surgery for.

Giroux would need eight weeks to recover if he does opt to have the operation. These issues were reportedly bothering Giroux throughout the 2015-16 campaign. He had 22 goals and 67 points in 78 contests in 2015-16 as well as an assist in six playoff games.

Claude Giroux wasn't satisfied with his performance in the 2016 playoffs.

Giroux didn't score a single goal and was limited to one assist in six games. To be fair, the Flyers as a whole struggled offensively throughout the first round series against Washington, but it could be argued that the onus was on Giroux to lead the team out of that. "Not good enough," Giroux said. "You know, I’m pretty frustrated with myself. Got to find a way, doesn’t matter how it is. You’ve got to find a way." He also said that he wasn't playing injured. Giroux still has 62 points in 63 career playoff games, so this could just be a case of a rough series for him rather than an indication of any more long-term issue.

Claude Giroux is looking to overcome a 3-0 series deficit for the second time in his career.

Giroux previously did it against Boston in 2010 and now the Flyers find themselves behind 3-0 against Washington. "The first thing we need to do is actually believe that we can come back," Giroux said. "We can’t be looking at the big picture knowing that we’ve got to win four games. You look at it like that, you think it’s going to be pretty hard against Washington. We’ve just got to win Game 4. After we win Game 4, we’ll be able to get momentum and go from there." The Flyers will attempt to start that journey Wednesday night. Game 4 is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. ET.
Apr 20 - 9:12 AM

Claude Giroux failed to garner a point in the Flyers first two games in Washington.

The Flyers lost both and need their leading scorer to start finding the back of the net. Giroux is one of the NHL's most prolific playoff point producers averaging 1.05 points per game which is 21st all-time in NHL history.
Apr 17 - 9:27 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers are 0-17 on the power play in their last five games.

That includes an 0-4 effort in Game 1 against the Capitals. The Flyers power play consists of Claude Giroux, Brayden Schenn, Wayne Simmonds, Jakub Voracek and Shayne Gostisbehere. The Capitals put a lot of pressure on Giroux whenever he had the puck in Game 1 including double teaming him so the Flyers need to find a way to get the puck elsewhere and start over if they want to be successful. If the Flyers do not improve quickly with the man-advantage, it will be a short series for Philadelphia.
Apr 16 - 8:32 AM

Claude Giroux and the Philadelphia Flyers were shut out 2-0 by Braden Holtby and the Capitals in Game 1 on Thursday night.

Giroux, who has 61 points in 59 career playoff games, launched two of the team's 19 shots on net. It wasn't a strong enough attack to break a force like Holtby guarding the net. Nonetheless, the Flyers kept it close and if they can produce some offense in Game 2, they might have a shot at tying the series.
Apr 14 - 10:52 PM

Claude Giroux will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's season finale against the Islanders.

It wasn't quite the offensive season expected of Philadelphia's captain, but it was certainly a top notch one. Giroux posted 22 goals and 67 points in 78 games. He registered eight goals and 28 points in 31 games after the All-Star break, leading his team to the playoffs.
Apr 10 - 6:40 PM

Claude Giroux has won the Bobby Clarke Trophy after been named the Flyer's MVP for the fourth time in the last six seasons.

Giroux leads the team with 66 points this season and has the most points of any NHL player over the last five seasons with 366. Giroux has had 60+ points season in fives of the last six campaigns. He is a must start in fantasy and should be considered that for many years to come.
Apr 8 - 9:16 AM

Claude Giroux was strong on the draw Saturday as he won 13 of 18 faceoffs.

Giroux has been the Flyers best forward over the last five seasons and leads the team with 22 goals and 65 points including 27 points with the man-advantage. He was held pointless on Saturday but did contribute at the dot. He is a must-start in most pools.
Apr 3 - 8:29 AM

Claude Giroux registered an assist in a 2-1 shootout win over Washington on Wednesday.

Giroux has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six games. He has 22 goals and 65 points in 73 contests in 2015-16. If he can reach the 70-point mark, then he'll be accomplishing that feat for the third consecutive campaign.
Mar 31 - 11:12 AM

Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux notched two points -- including the game-winning goal in overtime -- to lead the Flyers to a 3-2 triumph over the visiting Winnipeg Jets Monday night.

Giroux scored his 22nd goal of the season with only 13.6 seconds remaining in OT. He now has seven OT goals in his career, a Flyers record. Giroux also assisted -- his 42nd of the season -- on a Wayne Simmonds goal in the second period. Mark Streit also scored for the Flyers, his sixth of the season. Giroux did not take part in the Flyers' optional morning skate Monday after appearing to be unconscious on the ice Saturday after his head bounced off the boards. The victory Monday night was important for the Flyers. They hold the second wild-card spot into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference. The Flyers and Detroit Red Wings each have 87 points. Philly is in the East's final playoff spot, having played one game less than the Wings.
