Claude Giroux has two goals and six points in four games with Team Canada in the 2017 World Championship.
Giroux is serving as the captain for Canada, which has gotten off to a 4-0 start in the tournament. He had a rough 2016-17 campaign by his standards with 14 goals and 58 points in 82 contests, but so far it's looking like playing in the Worlds will allow him to enter the summer on a more positive note.

Claude Giroux will captain Team Canada in the 2017 World Championships.

Giroux has played for Canada in several tournaments in the past. He's won gold medals with Canada in the 2008 World Juniors and 2015 World Championships. In that 2015 tournament, Giroux scored three goals and 10 points in 10 games. He was also part of Canada's championship squad in the 2016 World Cup, though he only participated in one game in that tournament.
May 4 - 7:00 PM

Claude Giroux's 14 goals in 2016-17 is a career-low among seasons where he participated in a full campaign.

The only times Giroux has scored less than 14 goals was 2007-08, 2008-09, and 2013 and in each of those campaigns he played in 48 or fewer games. He had a shooting percentage of 7.0 this season, which is well below his career average of 10.6%. He did have offseason hip and abdominal surgeries, which impacted him this season so perhaps he'll bounce back in 2017-18 when those are no longer a factor.
Apr 10 - 10:29 AM

Claude Giroux picked up his 44th helper of the year during Saturday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

Now through 81 games, Giroux has 58 points. If he can crack 60-points, it'll be the sixth time in his career he was able to reach that milestone.
Apr 8 - 5:09 PM

When asked about the possibility of being traded, Claude Giroux said that he's "not leaving."

That suggests that Giroux isn't open to waiving his no-movement clause, though anything's possible. The Flyers might not want to trade him anyways. Philadelphia hasn't made it past the first round over the last five campaigns and its about the miss the playoffs for the third time over that span, so it's not unreasonable to think that the Flyers would want to make some major changes. At the age of 29 though, Giroux still might be young enough to be part of the solution.
Apr 7 - 10:43 AM

Claude Giroux registered an assist in the Flyers' 3-0 win over New Jersey on Saturday.

Giroux has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has 14 goals and 57 points in 78 contests this season.
Apr 2 - 10:20 AM

Claude Giroux assisted on both of Philadelphia's goals in a 3-2 loss to Winnipeg Tuesday night.

The Flyers have been fading out of the battle for a playoff spot, but that hasn't been due to a lack of contributions from Giroux. The Flyers captain has two goals and eight points in his last eight games. That's somewhat in contrast to his disappointing showing overall this season as he has 53 points in 72 contests. It's worth noting though that he has been bothered by a hip problem for the majority of the campaign.
Mar 22 - 10:28 AM

Claude Giroux has been bothered by his hip for most of the season.

Giroux is having a tough season but has been better of late as he has 14 goals and 51 points this season and had a six game points streak end on Sunday. "I really noticed the pace and the speed of his game has been very good over the last 10 days, two weeks, it seems like he has been able to elevate a little bit there," coach Dave Hakstol said. "I would agree and think he has been very effective through that time period." Giroux had a terrible slump where he had only three goals and 15 points with a minus-19 rating in 32 games. Look for a comeback season in 2017-18.
Mar 20 - 8:39 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers are having a tough time finding the back of the net since the beginning of December.

Philadelphia has scored only 102 goals in 46 games in the last three-and-a-half months and it's no wonder why they are on the outside looking in at the playoffs. Claude Giroux is having a horrible time in the goal scoring department as he has only 14 this season, including five in his last 41 games.
Mar 18 - 8:57 AM

Claude Giroux extended his point streak to six games on Thursday.

Giroux registered an assist in a 6-2 loss to New Jersey. He has 14 goals and 51 points in 70 contests this season.
Mar 17 - 9:49 AM

Claude Giroux is on a five-game point streak.

Giroux kept that run going by scoring against the Penguins in a 4-0 win Wednesday night. He has 14 goals and 50 points in 69 contests this season. While he's on track to end the season on a high note, this is still looking like it's going to be a regressive season for him after he recorded 67 points in 2015-16.
Mar 16 - 9:08 AM

Claude Giroux lifted his latest point streak to three games with an assist during Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Bruins.

The Captain now has a goal and three points in that span. For the season he has 13 goals and 47 points in 66 games.
Mar 11 - 4:32 PM

Claude Giroux ended a 12-game goal scoring drought on Tuesday.

Giroux had just four assists during that 12-game span. The Flyers are in a tight battle for a Wild Card spot, so they really need this to be the beginning of a hot streak for Giroux.
Mar 8 - 9:16 AM

Claude Giroux has recorded just one goal and one assist in the last 10 games.

Going into Wednesday's meeting with the Capitals, the Flyers captain has registered just two goals and 11 points in the past 21 matches. Giroux has one goal in two appearances against Washington this year.
Feb 22 - 5:57 PM

Claude Giroux isn't happy with how he's been playing.

"The bottom line is, the team’s gotta be better," Giroux said. "Personally, I've got to be better. I've got to play up to my standards and right now, that’s not the case and it’s frustrating. You want to do everything you can to help the team and that’s not the case right now." Giroux has been limited to two goals and 10 points in his last 20 games. Unfortunately, he's seen his production steadily decline from its peak of 93 points in 2011-12, to 86, 73, and 67 points in each of the last three campaigns. This season he might see his point production dip further as he has 41 points in 55 contests.
