Claude Giroux: right hand surgery, could return as early as Sept. 24 (post #173)

* expected full recovery in 5-6 weeks (from Aug. 15)

UPDATE:
Quote:
Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux had successful surgery this afternoon on his right index finger performed by Dr. Katherine Boyd at the Ottawa Civic Hospital in Ottawa, Canada. Giroux was golfing today when his golf club shattered and splintered into his index finger. Although there were no broken bones, there was some damage to his extensor tendons in his finger. He is expected to have a full recovery in 5-6 weeks."

Claude Giroux hurts finger while playing golf & had to be operated on. 4 tendons affected according to report

Quote:
Claude Giroux devra passer les trois prochaines semaines avec une main dans le plâtre. LeDroit a appris ce soir que le nouveau capitaine des Flyers de Philadelphie a été victime d’un malheureux accident alors qu’il jouait au golf sur les allées du club Camelot à Cumberland aujourd’hui.

L’ancienne vedette des Olympiques de Gatineau habite à Ottawa pendant l’été. Ce matin, il jouait au golf avec des amis. Selon son père, Raymond, le #28 venait de frapper une balle quand son bâton a brisé en deux. Un morceau est monté dans les airs pour retomber sur une main du Magicien Franco-Ontarien, occasionnant une plaie qui l’a fait souffrir.

Transporté à l’hôpital, il a dû être opéré puisque quatre tendons avaient été touchés sans être sectionnés. Son début de saison pourrait être compromis puisque le camp des Flyers débutera le 12 septembre au Wells Fargo Center. Après avoir retiré son plâtre, Giroux devra se soumettre à des exercices de physiothérapie.

I'm no doctor but a finger injury sounds more tolerable than a wrist injury.

The severity of the injuries likely plays a part. Briere had a wrist injury last season. Giroux has had prior wrist injuries, too.

Claude Giroux will spend the next three weeks with a hand in plaster. LeDroit learned tonight that the new captain of the Philadelphia Flyers was the victim of an unfortunate accident while playing golf on the fairways Club Camelot in Cumberland today.

The former star of the Gatineau Olympiques lives in Ottawa during the summer. This morning he was playing golf with friends. According to his father, Raymond, the # 28 had hit a ball when his stick broke in two. A piece is mounted in the air to land on a hand Magician Franco-Ontarian, causing a wound that did suffer.

Transported to the hospital, he had to be operated as four tendons were affected without being severed. His early season could be compromised since the Flyers camp begins September 12 at Wells Fargo Center. After removing the plaster, Giroux will undergo physiotherapy.
The above in English via Google translate. Sounds like a freak injury club breaks and cuts his finger

Maybe he misses a week or two to begin the season? Does that sound right?

Tim says wrist, contradicted by one of his colleagues minutes later. Tim says team are staying tight lipped, team releases statement minutes later. I've missed him this offseason. Sort of.

I honestly just stopped following the guy a while ago, between telling stories about his personal life that no one gives a **** about & being wrong the majority of the time, I just couldn't do it anymore.
