Flyers' Claude Giroux: Flyers captain not available to Vegas

Giroux was protected by Philadelphia and will not be available to the Golden Knights in the expansion draft, NHL.com reports.

It was a disappointing season from Giroux, as he had his worst offensive season since the 2009-10 campaign. Additionally, his point total has now dropped in three consecutive years. While Giroux owns a high fantasy floor because of his astute power-play prowess, his even-strength numbers are dipping significantly. Among all forwards with at least 1,000 minutes last season, Grioux's 0.94 points per 60 minutes at five-on-five was the second-lowest mark in the league.
