Claude Giroux did not finish among the top three in Hart Trophy voting.
Giroux finished second in NHL scoring with 102 points this season, by far his best in his NHL career but this season there were many candidates for the Hart including Taylor Hall, Nathan MacKinnon and Anze Kopitar, the three finalists. Giroux was outstanding this season and was one of the best in the league, even if the voters deemed him to be not worthy of winning the trophy. Apr 29 - 7:51 AM

Claude Giroux has decided against playing in the 2018 World Championships.

Giroux most recently participated in the tournament in 2017, scoring two goals and six points in 10 games with Team Canada. He has eight goals and 24 points in 28 career World Championship games and won gold in that tournament in 2015.

Claude Giroux opened the scoring in Game 5 on Friday night against Pittsburgh for his first goal of the series.

The 102-point scorer during the regular season had been nearly shut down offensively in the first four contests of the series, posting just one assist with a dismal minus-7 rating. He was paired with Valtteri Filppula and Jakub Voracek on the top line, as Sean Couturier was moved out, and the newly-formed trio accounted for two goals and five points to force a Game 6 back in Philadelphia.

With the Flyers down 3-1 in their series to the Penguins, Claude Giroux doesn't believe that the team's issue has been a lack of compete.

"You know what, I think our compete level is pretty good," Giroux said. "I know it’s tough to see. I think the guys are working a little too hard, we’re not playing smart enough, gripping our sticks a little too much. I think we need to take a breather and play some hockey. Yeah, we’re not ready for our season to be over. When we go to Pittsburgh, tough building to play in. We know we can win there. We know if we play our game, we can win. So, we’re going to go out there, play our game and be back for Game 6." Game 5 will be played Friday night. The Penguins have looked like the better team throughout most of the series and that's because in most ways, they are. Nevertheless, the Flyers have some big weapons on their side like Giroux and you never know what might happen when your best players get hot. Certainly the Flyers have a real chance of staying in this series even if it would be an uphill climb.

Claude Giroux and the Philadelphia Flyers were shut out 5-0 during Wednesday's Game 4 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Giroux's quiet post-season continues and he finished tonight's game with a minus-3 rating, and a giveaway. The 30-year-old forward has just one assist in four playoff games so far and if the Flyers want to get back in this series, they'll need their captain to get going offensively. The series heads back to Pittsburgh on Friday for Game 5 with the Flyers down 3-1.
Apr 18 - 9:49 PM

Claude Giroux has been fairly quiet in the first round of the playoffs.

Giroux has been limited to an assist in three games against Pittsburgh in the series. That's despite the fact that he was red hot going into the playoffs with 19 goals and 44 points in his final 29 regular season games. He was also on a 10-game point streak entering the postseason that included a total of 19 points. It all makes his quiet start to the series particularly noticeable and with the Flyers down 2-1 going into Game 4 on Wednesday, they'll need Giroux to step up.
Apr 17 - 5:13 AM

Claude Giroux will not face NHL discipline for his high hit to the head of the Penguins' Kris Letang.

Giroux, who was one of the Flyers' better players in Philly's 5-1 win in Game 2 against Pittsburgh, will be able to suit up for Game 3 Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia.
Apr 14 - 10:37 AM

Claude Giroux is one of the few players on the Flyers that have won a playoff series before.

The Flyers last won a playoff series in 2012. Giroux was 24-years-old at the time. "I think when it doesn’t go your way and you look at other guys being successful and win the Cup, it makes you a little hungrier every season," Giroux said. "The worst is when you get kicked out in the playoffs and you go home and you watch all those playoff games. You want to be a part of that and you make sure when you watch the games, you remind yourself that when you’re in the playoffs, you don’t want to take it for granted." Giroux was a huge contributor for the Flyers this season with 34 goals and 102 points in 82 contests, so they'll naturally be looking for him to come up big again in the first round of the playoffs.

Claude Giroux has been named the third star of the week for the period ending Apr. 8.

Giroux notched five goals and two assists in three games to finish the regular season. He became the first member of the Flyers to reach the 100-point plateau since Eric Lindros accomplished the feat in 1995-96.

Claude Giroux scored three goals in a 5-0 win over the New York Rangers.

Giroux's big afternoon got him a few milestones and clinched the Flyers a spot in the post-season. He will now join Bobby Clarke (3), Mark Recchi (2), Rick MacLeish, Bill Barber & Eric Lindros as the only players to hit the single season century mark in points with the Flyers. Giroux's second goal of the night also made him surpass Rick MacLeish (100 in 1972-73) for the seventh most single season points in Flyers history. It's also hard to believe that today's hat trick was his first in the regular-season for Giroux in 738 games. Today's performance arguably puts him at the top of the Hart Trophy list. The 30-year-old forward will close out the regular season with 34 goals and 102 points in 82 games, almost double his point total from last season (58).
Apr 7 - 5:45 PM

If Claude Giroux registers at least one point in Saturday afternoon's season finale against the Rangers, he will reach the 100-point plateau for the season.

Giroux would become only the sixth Flyer player in history to accomplish the feat. The other five: Bobby Clarke (three times), Mark Recchi (twice), Eric Lindros, Bill Barber and Rick MacLeish. Pretty exclusive company if you ask us. What a tremendous bounce-back season for the Philly captain.
Apr 7 - 11:32 AM

Claude Giroux has been credited with an assist on Michael Raffl's goal in Thursday's win over Carolina.

Apr 6 - 11:50 AM

Claude Giroux found the back of the net in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes had a 2-1 lead going into the second period, but the Flyers managed to tie the game thanks Ivan Provorov and go ahead by a goal thanks to Giroux. The Flyers captain finished the night with a plus-2 rating and four shots on goal in 15:23 of ice time. Giroux is now riding a nine-game point streak and he's collected at least one point in 16 of his last 17 contests. The 30-year-old is up to 31 goals and 98 points in 81 games this season. He has one game remaining to hit the 100-point mark for the first time in his NHL career.
Apr 5 - 10:05 PM

Claude Giroux scored a goal and registered an assist in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Islanders on Tuesday.

The marker was Giroux's 30th goal of the 2017-18. He's always been more of a playmaker and this is the first season where he's reached the 30-goal mark. He also has 97 points in 80 games, which is good for third place in the scoring race behind Nikita Kucherov (98 points) and Connor McDavid (103).
Apr 4 - 5:09 AM
