Claude Giroux has the distinction of being the longest tenured active athlete in Philadelphia.

That title used to go to Brent Celek of the Eagles, but he was released. Giroux made his debut back on Feb. 19, 2008. "I did not know that," Giroux said of his new role as Philadelphia's longest tenured athlete. "It doesn’t feel that long. I mean, I’m a little old. It’s been 10 years, it feels like five. Teams change quick. We have a lot of the players we had in 2012, but from 2010, we don’t have any guys. I guess we have [Ian Laperriere], but he’s coaching now."

Claude Giroux's one of the biggest bounce back players of the season.

Giroux went from recording 58 points in 82 games last season - his worst total since 2009-10 if you exclude the lockout shortened campaign - to enjoying one of the best seasons of his career. He has 25 goals and 82 points in 70 contests, which puts him in a three-way tie for fourth place in the league's scoring race. Giroux is looking like a long shot to win the Hart Trophy, but he's definitely among those worthy of discussion this season given all he's done to push Philadelphia into a playoff position.

Claude Giroux scored a goal in a 3-2 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

Giroux took a pass from Sean Couturier before sniping one over Marc-Andre Fleury's glove for his 25th goal of the year. Giroux has 24 points in his last 17 contests, bringing him to a total of 82 in 70 games. After a disappointing 2016-17 season, Giroux has shown he's still got it. Wayne Simmonds also scored in the loss.

Claude Giroux scored his 24th goal of the year in a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Giroux gave credit after the game to the fans who encouraged him to shoot after the Jets had a delayed penalty called against them. The goal brings him to 656 career points, just three behind Eric Lindros for the fifth most as a Flyer. Giroux is only four goals away from matching his career high of 28 set during the 2011-12 and 2013-14 seasons.
Mar 10 - 4:13 PM

Claude Giroux has reached the 80-point milestone.

Mar 9 - 8:02 AM

Claude Giroux extended his point streak to four games on Wednesday.

Claude Giroux scored once and added an assist Saturday.

Giroux continues to show that last season's 14 goal, 58 points was an anomaly as he is back scoring with 23 goals and 77 points thus far in 65 games. If you took him this season, it was likely in the middle rounds and he has rewarded you greatly.
Mar 4 - 8:26 AM

Claude Giroux had a goal and an assist in the Flyers 5-3 win over Ottawa Saturday.

What a turnaround it has been for Giroux who has 22 goals and 74 points in 62 games after only 14 goals and 58 points in a full season last year. Giroux's career high of 93 points is in doubt and that would be a fitting cap on the season for the just turned 30-year-old. Needless to say, he is a must start.
Feb 25 - 8:14 AM

Claude Giroux has gotten to the 70-point milestone.

Giroux needed just 60 games to get there. This is the first time since 2014-2015 that he's recorded at least 70 points, but it's also the fifth time in his career that he's reached this milestone. There's a chance that he'll end up topping his career-high of 93 points.

The Flyers have the Giroux of old after a horrendous (for him) 2016-17 season in which he had only 14 goals and 58 points in a full season. He has 18 goals and 64 points thus far in 56 games and has been a great pick in most pools as he was a mid-round selection in plenty of leagues.
