Top Claude Giroux News

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Paces offense in win

    Giroux scored a goal on two shots, logged two assists, added three hits and went plus-2 in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Capitals in Game 6.

    Giroux was involved in the Panthers' last three goals. He tied the game at 2-2 at 8:18 of the third period, set up Aleksander Barkov on a go-ahead goal six minutes later and fed Carter Verhaeghe for the game-winner in overtime. Through six playoff games, Giroux's racked up three goals, four assists, nine shots on net, 10 hits and a plus-5 rating. He'll look to keep things rolling in the second round.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Goal and assist in win

    Giroux scored a goal on five shots, dished an assist, went plus-3 and added two hits in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Capitals in Game 5.

    Giroux helped out on the first of Carter Verhaeghe's two goals, and the latter returned the favor on the former's insurance tally with 4:05 left in the contest. All four of Giroux's points in this series have come in three home games. He's added seven shots on net, seven hits and a plus-3 rating in five appearances overall.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Practicing Monday

    Giroux (rest) took part in Monday's practice session, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Giroux slotted into a spot on the second line with Jonathan Huberdeau and Sam Bennett after having sat out the Panthers' last two games. Prior to his absence, the 34-year-old center racked up 18 points in his last 12 outings, including two goals and seven helpers with the man advantage. If Florida makes a deep run into the playoffs, the addition of Giroux could go down as the best move at the trade deadline this year.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Resting Thursday

    Giroux (rest) will not play Thursday in Ottawa.

    Giroux will be joined by four Panthers teammates taking a breather in advance of the postseason, which starts next week. It's unclear at this point if Giroux will play Friday in Montreal.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Five-point weekend

    Giroux had two assists -- one on the power play -- in Sunday's 8-4 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Giroux has five points in his last two games, but his contributions were far from enough to keep pace with the locked-in Lightning offense in this one. To Giroux's credit, he managed to avoid most of the damage defensively, finishing the game with an even rating.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Scoring success continues

    Giroux scored a goal and added two assists in a 3-2 overtime win over the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

    Giroux tied it 2-2 at 14:54 of the second period with a slap shot on the power play. It was his first goal in seven games. He has 20 points (three goals, 17 assists) in 16 games in Sunrise after putting up 42 in 57 in Philly. Giroux seems to have found new life in Florida, away from the pressures of wearing the C. Panthers' fans will be hoping he can channel the scoring success he had in the 2011-12 playoffs when he delivered 21 points in 23 games.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Distributes three assists

    Giroux notched three assists and a plus-3 rating in Friday's 6-1 win over the Jets.

    Giroux set up both of Jonathan Huberdeau's first-period tallies and another goal by Gustav Forsling late in the second. Since joining the Panthers at the trade deadline, Giroux has leveled up his offense with two goals and 13 helpers in 12 outings. The 34-year-old forward has 57 points, 185 shots on net, 62 hits and a minus-5 rating in 69 appearances when accounting for his time with the Flyers this year, but he's been a plug-and-play option in fantasy lately.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Big night on power play Friday

    Giroux scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Friday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.

    He opened the scoring for Florida midway through the first period, then helped set up Sam Reinhart late in the second to tie the game at 3-3. Giroux is thriving since being traded from the Flyers, racking up two goals and 11 points in nine games for the Panthers, with most of that production (one goal and six points) coming on the man advantage.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Two key points in comeback win

    Giroux had a goal, a power-play assist and seven shots in Tuesday's 7-6 overtime win over the Maple Leafs.

    Giroux cut Toronto's lead to 5-4 late in the second on a goal assisted by Jonathan Huberdeau, then he returned the favor on Huberdeau's game-tying marker early in the third. While he was the main man in Philadelphia, Giroux can work as an elite ancillary option in the league-best Florida offense while letting the likes of Jonathan Huberdeau (five points) and Aleksander Barkov (four points) carry the load on a nightly basis.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Four apples in two games in new uni

    Giroux picked up two assists Saturday in a 4-3 shootout win over the Senators.

    The first one came on the power play when Anthony Duclair put the Panthers on the board in the second. The second came on Aleksander Barkov's game-tying goal late in the third. Giroux has four assists in two games as a Panther.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Two apples make purrfect debut

    Giroux had two assists in his Panthers' debut Thursday in a 4-3 win over the Canadiens.

    Giroux landed in Florida just prior to the trade deadline, and the fit was immediately evident. He helped set up an Aleksander Barkov goal just 36 seconds into the game, and then helped with a Sam Reinhart power-play marker at 7:20 of the third. Giroux is now part of what is arguably the top offense in the NHL, and that means a fantasy upgrade.

  • Panthers' Claude Giroux: Dealt to Sunshine State

    The Flyers traded Giroux, German Rubtsov, Connor Bunnaman and a 2024 fifth-round pick to Florida in exchange for Owen Tippett, a 2024 first-round pick and a 2023 third-round pick Saturday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    Giroux recently suited up in his 1,000th career NHL game, all with Philadelphia. The 34-year-old center has 18 goals and 42 points through 57 games this season, including 12 power-play points. He'll join a stacked group of forwards in Florida, where he could wind up centering the second line alongside Jonathan Huberdeau.

  • Flyers' Claude Giroux: Not traveling to Ottawa

    Giroux (not injury related) won't play Friday versus the Senators, Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now reports.

    Giroux is among the top names available for trade leading into Monday's deadline. He played his 1,000th game Thursday versus the Predators, but the Flyers have now turned to asset protection and won't risk him getting hurt before the trade deadline. It's very likely he's played his last game in orange and black -- if so, he finishes his tenure with the Flyers with exactly 900 points in 1,000 contests (291 goals, 609 assists).
