If I had to guess, it was their way of simply making clear that he is the primary alternate, if that makes sense. I don't think it will register any impact on the ice, except maybe that Timonen would take any ceremonial faceoffs (or any other "captain responsibilities" :sarcasm) in the event G is out.

...and I think it is the right call on Giroux.
