You live with your mom?

And you're saying sorry to me because I have a wife...

Since he's scheduled to re-join on Sunday I'm hoping it's nothing too serious

10th grade in Canada. That's like 9th grade in the USA.

J.S. Giguere's mother is dying in Montreal. She is 69 and terminally ill. Jiggy back with the #Avs, and thankful he was able to see her.


At least it wasn't his kid..

She has also been suffering from Alzheimer's for some time as well.

My father suffered with the same illness, and his passing was actually a blessing.
Here is an article where Jiggy says much the same thing.

Props to Giggy for coming back so soon. There is no way I would be able to leave the team, spend a couple days with her, and then come back to the team a few days later.

He is a strong guy and maybe coming back and playing will help keep his mind off it.

alzheimer disease sucks , My Parents are still young , but idk what i would do if either of them would get it . They say that it's harder on the family that it could be for the person itself , but still i'm praying God that neither of my Parent will get it

My grandfather had it and it is painful as hell for close relatives in the final few years.
None of our close family can understand how my grandmother could handle it so well. That's love I guess.

Hope for the best for Jiggy. Hope he remembers the good times with fondness.

It was good to see Sacco walk over to Jiggy after they beat Nashville, and jokingly say something and pat him on the shoulder, and see Jiggy smiling and in somewhat good spirits as he stepped out onto the ice to congratulate his teammates.

So I was reading the Preview for the Avs-Blues game on the Avs website, and at the bottom it says Giggy is on personal leave and the Avs have called up Pickard.

Is this just poor reporting and someone forgot to change it? Or did he leave again?

We've lost a few in my family to Alzheimer's. it's a terrible way to go. She's pretty young to have it, much less be in the end stages. I couldn't imagine having giggys travel/work schedule while your mom is dying.

It said in one of the articles a few days ago that he probably would be given leave again soon, so if it's a matter of days or hours before she passes it's likely he's gotten permission to leave again.

Yea, I remember the plan being that he would come back for the Nashville game, but could leave again after that.
