Giroux set up two goals in Saturday's loss to the Hurricanes. It was a disappointing season for the Flyers, but Giroux posted over a point per game for the second consecutive season, accruing 85 points in 82 games. The 31-year-old winger also played in every game for the third straight year. The Flyers have enough cap space to add more top players this summer, which would give Giroux another solid opportunity at a similar output next season.
Giroux scored his 22nd goal of 2018-19 in Thursday's 7-3 loss to St. Louis. The Flyers' captain scored with 43 seconds remaining in a first period that saw the red lamp go off an astonishing eight times. Giroux now has 83 points, and for a second straight season, he'll finish averaging more than a point per night. It's worth noting that despite the point-per-game pace, Giroux fell well short of matching his career-high 102 points from a year ago.
Giroux has one goal in the last 13 games but still has 80 points in 76 contests this season. The Flyers captain hasn't been able to find the back of the net with regularity this season, but he has 14 assists in the last 13 games, giving him more than a point-per-game average despite just one goal during that stretch. Last season, he posted a league-high 68 assists, and Giroux could possibly surpass that for a new career high if he picks up his assist pace a little more in the final two weeks. He has 20 goals and 60 helpers in 76 games.
Giroux (illness) will suit up for Sunday's showdown in Pittsburgh, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Flyers' captain was in danger of missing his first game since the 2015-16 season but will assume his usual top-six role. Plug Giroux into fantasy lineups for all formats as usual.
Giroux will be a game-time decision against the Penguins on Sunday due to illness, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Giroux is tied with Calgary's Sean Monahan and Jonathan Huberdeau for 22nd in the league with 78 points (20 goals, 56 assists) through 71 games apiece. Given Giroux's high-profile status, there's a chance that another update will surface on the showstopping pivot before pregame warmups, but fantasy owners are advised to line up alternatives ahead of time in case he can't give it a go.
