Claude Giroux was wearing a Carleton Ravens sweater on the ice Wednesday, but that meant Philadelphia Flyers management and fans were breathing a little easier.

Giroux, the Flyers star centre who grew up in Orleans and starred with the Gatineau Olympiques, was practicing with the Ravens and fellow locked out NHL players; the first time he has skated since suffering a neck/shoulder injury while playing for the Berlin Polar Bears three weeks ago.

“I’m doing better, but it’s a process and I need to understand that,” said Giroux, who finished third in NHL scoring behind Evgeni Malkin and Steven Stamkos last season, scoring 28 goals and 65 assists in 77 games. “(Tuesday) was my first day back in the gym and today was just a little skate, some flow drills and stuff. It was good, and hopefully, it keeps getting better.”

Giroux was on the ice for the full 90 minutes of the spirited workout, but he’s making no predictions on when he might possibly be ready to return to action, whether that’s in Philadelphia (if the NHL lockout ends) or back in Europe (if the lockout drags on).
