Like Domonic Brown, Claude Giroux will benefit from being on a team with a lot of established players who know the ropes. The Flyers have a 25-year-old captain in Mike Richards who will be expected to shoulder the heavy lifting. Giroux has been a big-time point generator at every level. During his rookie season with the Gatineau Olympiques in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, he had 39 goals and 103 points in just 69 games. The Flyers drafted him 22nd overall in 2006, and he proceeded to post two more hundred-point seasons in juniors, including 112 points in 63 games in his second season for Gatineau.

Claude Giroux was snubbed. Again. With hockey in a deep freeze, thanks to the NHL's second labor stoppage in 8 years, the Flyers' star - whom many consider to be Philadelphia's most electrifying athlete - dropped to fifth place in the Daily News' annual Sportsperson of the Year balloting. In other words, Giroux finished further back in his own city among sports writers than he did (fourth) in Hart Trophy voting last season for hockey's Most Valuable Player award. Full disclosure: This Flyers beat writer voted for Giroux as No. 1 on his ballot, ahead of Mike Trout, Doug Collins, Carlos Ruiz and Bill O'Brien.

AFTER SUSTAINING a neck injury while playing in Germany on Nov. 17, Flyers star Claude Giroux was back on the ice in Ottawa on Wednesday. Giroux, 24, participated in a 90-minute skate at the Carleton Ice House in Ottawa, where he makes his summer home. "I skated for the first time today," Giroux said in a message to the Daily News. "It was a slow skate. Just trying to get the legs going again. " Giroux is not fully recovered and said he had "no idea" when he would be back at 100 percent.

The concussion changes the perception, just a little. Even if his recovery is complete, it is hard to forget a period of December days when just a slow turn on the ice left him feeling sick. That was Claude Giroux's existence as the year neared its end. That the feeling passed is to be celebrated. He can only hope that that the healing is complete, and that 2011 will be remembered for what it was. That is, the year he became a star. That is the word: star. As he sat down with his concussion, Giroux led the National Hockey League in points.

The player known to his teammates as "G" will wear the "C. " Star center Claude Giroux was named the 19th captain in Flyers history, the club announced Tuesday night. Giroux, 25, replaces the injured Chris Pronger, whose career is likely over because of post-concussion syndrome. All week, players, coaches, and management types took turns praising Giroux's leadership and saying he was ready to assume the captain's role, so it became a foregone conclusion before the team made the announcement.

IT HAD been more than 3 1/2 years since Claude Giroux last dropped his gloves for a fight. That last time, in the 2012 playoffs, was his memorable bout with Sidney Crosby in the Flyers' series win over Pittsburgh. Last Wednesday, with his team trailing in Brooklyn and the game slipping out of reach, Giroux had a short bout with Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy. He said afterward he was trying to change the momentum of the game. It didn't work in the moment - the Flyers ended up losing the game.

DURING BASEBALL'S General Managers Meetings in Florida this week, word seeped out that the Phillies were willing to listen to offers for their young closer, Ken "100-miles-an-hour" Giles. On the surface, it made no sense. With a new team president and a new GM, the Phillies are in rebuilding mode and Giles, at age 25, would seem to fit that rebuild. But with no proven ace and none projected on the immediate horizon, they seem at least several seasons away from having a staff that could either prop up the young positional talent they hope trickles in over that time, or make Giles' considerable talents more than an occasional salve for win-starved fans beaten down not only by the baseball team's lack of success since 2011, but the win-much-later philosophy of their professional basketball franchise, the close-but-no-cigar personality of their professional football team, and the past organizational philosophy of the hockey team that can best be described by the visual of a beheaded chicken.

NASHVILLE - Like the Flyers' Shayne Gostisbehere, Detroit's Dylan Larkin has taken the NHL by storm - quicker than most people expected. The Red Wings' speedy center has played in 48 games and is third in goals (15), assists (18), and points (33) among NHL rookies, and he leads first-year players with a plus-24 rating. He also is an all-star. At 19. "It's pretty cool just to be able to introduce myself and for them to recognize me, almost have a relationship with them," he said of his fellow all-stars.

NASHVILLE - Besides having connections to the Philadelphia area and being named to their respective all-star teams this season, the Flyers' Claude Giroux and Calgary's Johnny Gaudreau have something else in common: The shifty forwards have proven the skeptics wrong. During their early teenage years, both were told they were too small to ever make it to the NHL. Heck, Gaudreau was still hearing those whispers even after the Flames took him in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. He was selected with the 104th pick - 36 slots after the Flyers chose Nick Cousins.

NASHVILLE - The new NHL All-Star Game format - a three-on-three mini-tournament - will liven up what has usually been 60 minutes of high-scoring boredom. That's the opinion shared by many of this year's participants, including Flyers captain Claude Giroux. "I think it's going to be more entertaining," Giroux said Friday at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. "There's more ice with the three-on-three, and fans want to see players play a little harder, try a little harder. The guys obviously don't want to get hurt [because]

WASHINGTON -- With five days off between games, most of the Flyers will get some rest during the all-star break and can look ahead to their final 35 games of the season. They are five points out of a playoff spot at the break and need to climb over five teams to get the final wild-card berth. The Flyers, who will send center Claude Giroux to Sunday's all-star tournament in Nashville, have games in hand on all five teams. Thanks to a stunning 4-3 overtime win over mighty Washington on Wednesday, they are feeling good about themselves.

Former Flyers captain Mike Richards downplayed facing his ex-team Wednesday at the Verizon Center. It will be the first time Richards has played against the Flyers since he signed a free-agent contract with Washington earlier this month. Richards spent six seasons with the Flyers before being dealt to Los Angeles in 2011. "It was a long time ago," Richards, Washington's fourth-line center, told reporters after the Capitals' practice Tuesday in Arlington, Va. "Four, five years ago now. There might be one player left on the team that I played with, so it really doesn't make much of a difference to me anymore.

The Flyers, coming off a crushing last-second loss to a scuffling Toronto team that had dropped five straight, will try to regroup Thursday night in Pittsburgh. Because of the NHL's goofy schedule, this will be the first time the Flyers will meet their bitter arch-rivals this season - and the first time in 291 days. The teams won't face each other at the Wells Fargo Center until March 19. "It's a good rush to play them," captain Claude Giroux said after practice Wednesday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees.

PITTSBURGH - The names were hard to hate, mostly because you'd never heard of them before. It had been 291 days since the Flyers had upped their winning streak against the Penguins to eight, and the indifference that names such as Olli Maatta, Ben Dumoulin and Bryan Rust evoked when the teams finally met Thursday night was not overwhelmed by any plays or shenanigans of their more recognized and despised stars. Yes, Sidney Crosby scored an impossible wide-angle goal that harkened to his Olympic gold-medal winner and Evgeni Malkin did his puck-possession magic at times, despite Scott Laughton and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare doing their best to fill in for injured Sean Couturier - Malkin's regular blanket since these teams last met in a playoff game nearly four years ago. And Phil Kessel, another old Olympic hero, brought Pittsburgh all the way back from a 2-0, first-period hole, knocking in a loose puck during one of an endless string of power plays to grab the lead, scoring an even-strength 2-on-1 in the third period for the deciding goal of a 4-3, defense-to-the-wind Penguins victory.

After their six-game points streak ended on a fluke goal in the closing seconds Tuesday, Flyers captain Claude Giroux tried to put a positive spin on things. "We're going to have games like this; we just can't have too many," Giroux said minutes after the Flyers dropped a 3-2 decision to Toronto at the Wells Fargo Center. "We're going to have games where we're not going to play the right way, but you know what, the last seven games we've been playing some good hockey.

DETROIT - After a slow start this season - four points in the first 13 games - Jake Voracek has resembled the player who finished tied for fourth in the NHL scoring race last year. Entering the 2-1 shootout win over the Red Wings on Sunday, the 26-year-old winger had five goals, 15 points, a plus-7 rating, and 41 shots in his last 13 games. Overall, he led the Flyers with 25 assists, and his 30 points placed him behind only Claude Giroux (34) on the team. Then Voracek scored the game-winner in the shootout.

Henrik Lundqvist remained on one knee for a moment, looking on in almost bewilderment as the Flyers celebrated an early lead. The New York Rangers goaltender was caught on the wrong side of the net as Sean Couturier sent a pass across the crease to Brayden Schenn, who fired it home less than four minutes into the first period. It had all the signs of a long afternoon for Lundqvist, who has long been a thorn in the Flyers' side. Instead, it proved to be a rare miscue. Lundqvist returned to his feet and rallied the Rangers to a 3-2 win. He recorded 34 saves, including a series of key stops late in the third period.
