Claude Giroux named Captain of the Flyers

Accordin to randy miler, apparently Giroux Is gonna be named captain before the season opener.

"Giroux, by the way, is expected to replace injured defenseman Chris Pronger as captain before the season opener, and he says he's healthy after injuring his neck playing in Germany. He was injured on Nov. 16, headed back to North America within a few days for treatment and recently has been skating pain free in Toronto."

You would think that this would be a bigger story, right? Randy miller wrote this in his latest column.

Mod edit:

Giroux officially named Captain

The Philadelphia Flyers today named Claude Giroux the 19th captain in the franchise’s history, according to general manager Paul Holmgren. In addition, Holmgren announced that Kimmo Timonen will serve as associate captain, while Scott Hartnell and Danny Briere will serve as alternate captains.

"Claude is the undisputed leader of this team,” Holmgren said in making the announcement. “He always exhibits a tremendous work ethic in games and practices. He is a great professional both on and off the ice. Claude has learned a lot over the past few years playing with Mike Richards, Danny Briere, Kimmo Timonen and Chris Pronger, just to name a few. Having played with these athletes has been a huge benefit for Claude."
