Flyers' Claude Giroux: Should be ready for World Cup of Hockey
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Giroux (hip) will represent Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey in Toronto this fall, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Giroux underwent surgeries on his hip and abdomen in mid-May, though he expects to be ready for the international tournament. Given that the World Cup promises to be intense and precedes the start of the NHL season, this will give fantasy players a golden opportunity to confirm whether Giroux looks to be at full speed. We'd be cautiously optimistic on the captain since his rehab seems to be going well, though his detractors won't soon forget about how Giroux produced just one point with a minus-2 rating against the Capitals in the conference quarterfinals of the playoffs this past April.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Giroux will undergo hip surgery next week, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports, adding that he's expected back for the World Cup of Hockey, which starts Sept. 17.

The report specifies that it's a hernia. Either way, this might explain why Giroux struggled versus the Capitals in the first round of the playoffs, recording just one point and a minus-2 rating in six games. He looked bogged down on the ice and only managed 10 shots in the series. We'll keep you posted on Giroux's status once he officially goes under the knife and begins the rehab process.
