Giordano has five goals and 31 points in 60 games this season. After exploding for 74 points last season on his way to winning the Norris Trophy, Giordano's 2019-20 campaign has been a big letdown for fantasy owners. Even if the NHL does resume the regular season, it looks like the 36-year-old's six-year streak with double-digit goals will come to an end.
Giordano managed an assist and a team-high six shots on goal in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blue Jackets. Giordano had a shot attempt tipped in by Matthew Tkachuk for the game-tying goal with 1:43 left in regulation. The 36-year-old defenseman has four helpers in as many games since he returned from a hamstring injury. He's at just 31 points with 154 shots and 142 blocked shots in 58 contests, far below last year's 74-point output.
Giordano notched three assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Panthers. For one day at least, the 36-year-old blueliner rediscovered his Norris Trophy-winning form, after being held off the scoresheet in his first two games back in the lineup from a hamstring injury. On the season, Giordano has only five goals and 30 points through 57 contests.
Giordano (hamstring) had two shots on goal, two blocked shots and a hit in 21:34 during Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators. Giordano immediately resumed his top-pairing duties after a 10-game absence. The 36-year-old blueliner remains at 27 points with 138 blocks and 145 shots through 55 contests this year. With the acquisition of Erik Gustafsson from the Blackhawks at the trade deadline, Giordano is set to see less time on the power play over the final stretch of the season.
Giordano (hamstring) took line rushes during warmups and will play in Thursday's game against the Predators, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports. Giordano missed 10 games with the injury, but he's ready to return. Expect the 36-year-old to pair with T.J. Brodie on the top pairing. Michael Stone will exit the lineup to make way for Giordano.
