No he doesn't. They play on the same power play unit, and play almost exclusively at 5 on 5 with one another. The only time Giroux is out without Voracek is when he's taking a defensive zone draw on another line, and then he usually gets off the ice right away.

Voracek has a ton of talent, but he doesn't use it to his benefit. His speed and size should be blowing up the center of the ice for his linemates the way Jagr use to do it. But Jake seems content to get the puck, skate it really fast up the wall through the neutral zone, and then make a horrific decision between a choice of wrapping it hard, taking a weak ass shot, or passing it two opposing defensemen.
