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.

The Philadelphia Flyers hold "The Meeting" every spring, and this was the one in 2006. The team employs more than a dozen scouts, scattered in outposts around the globe. Their task is both simple and simply daunting: to identify kids who will grow up to look good in orange and black. In the weeks before the NHL draft, the scouts gather to assemble and sift through a list of these kids. Arguments are had. Voices are raised. It is the scouts' business, after all, and their passions are being tested, their reputations on the line.

LEADERSHIP. When a team is performing better than expected or worse than expected, the word is invariably evoked. By words, example or both, great leaders compel teammates to test the limits of their abilities, to play better than what their resumé or skill set might suggest. That's the widely held belief anyway. Teams without leaders? Well they generally look a lot like the Flyers do these days - fragile, mentally weak, underachieving, bowing their heads at the first sign of trouble, succumbing to adversity rather than playing through it. "Well you do need good leadership to be a successful team," Craig Berube said this week, before the Flyers recorded back-to-back shutouts in losses to Washington and Vancouver.

From the moment the elevator doors open in Alfred "Fred" Hagen's ultrachic penthouse, the swooning begins. The unit, spanning the top two floors of a trendy 12-story boutique building in Society Hill, is the pinnacle of stylish city living. Floor-to-ceiling windows stretch across the 4,000-square-foot residence, where breathtaking views pan from the city's corporate center to the stadium complex to the Delaware River, where the Ben Franklin Bridge arcs in the wake of cruising cargo ships.

WASHINGTON - Claude Giroux galloped through the neutral zone and dragged the puck through two outstretched defenders, finally breaking free just above the top of the circles. He unleashed a snap shot, not unlike one that has found the twine 133 other times in his career, but it was quickly gobbled up and swallowed by Braden Holtby. Giroux could do little more than shake his head and exhale, as he slid up the boards and back to the bench in disbelief. "I was coming in pretty fast," Giroux said, sighing.

WASHINGTON - Two nights after they erupted for seven goals, the Flyers couldn't put the puck past Washington goalie Braden Holtby, dropping a 1-0 decision Wednesday night at the red-clad Verizon Center. Holtby recorded his fourth shutout of the season as Washington won its seventh straight at home. The Caps have points in 18 of their last 19 games. With about a minute left, Holtby (21 saves) kept the Flyers scoreless after a wild scramble in front of the net. "I thought we did a pretty good job tonight.

THE RUMORS are true: North Philly rapper Meek Mill and superstar Nicki Minaj are an item. How do I know? They cuddled up next to each other at Friday night's Wale show at the TLA. Mill 's buddy Rick Ross and his gal pal, Ming Lee, were also there in support of his Maybach Music Group crew, along with local boxer-turned-designer Simon "One Punch" Carr .

The Flyers lost more than a hockey game Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. A lot more. They lost the services of talented goalie Steve Mason for an undetermined amount of time. Mason, who took the league's fourth-best save percentage (.933) in even-strength situations into the game, suffered an apparent injury to his right knee in the opening period of the Flyers' 3-1 loss to the tight-checking Boston Bruins. The Flyers would say only that Mason suffered a lower-body injury and would be reevaluated Sunday.

Flyers linemates Jake Voracek, who leads the NHL with 50 points, and Claude Giroux were named to the league's all-star team Saturday. The game will be played Jan. 25 in Columbus, Ohio, where Voracek spent the first three seasons of his career. He was dealt to the Flyers in 2011 for Jeff Carter and a first-round draft pick that produced Sean Couturier and a third-rounder that turned out to be Nick Cousins. Voracek, a 25-year-old right winger, will be making his first appearance in an All-Star Game.

Claude Giroux said he didn't think about the "little details" that might distract him during the shootout win Tuesday over the Ottawa Senators. "The first few shifts were harder than usual. After that, the adrenaline kind of takes over," Giroux said Wednesday. "You just think about what you have to do on the ice and play the game. " The little details that might have bothered other players or kept them off the ice were the eight stitches required to close a deep, nasty gash on his left leg just above the ankle.

After taking part in pregame warm-ups, Flyers captain Claude Giroux decided he could be effective enough to play Tuesday against visiting Ottawa. Giroux, who began the night tied for fourth in the NHL with 43 points, centered a line with Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek. Earlier in the day, Giroux skated gingerly and did not take part in line rushes at the morning skate in Voorhees. Coach Craig Berube said that Giroux - who suffered a severe skate cut near his left ankle in a 2-1 loss to Carolina on Friday and missed the next game - had been cleared by doctors to play, but that it depended on his comfort level.

IF RON Hextall's true, no-holds-barred appraisal of the Flyers' roster began last night against Ottawa, consider Wayne Simmonds among the first to make a statement. Simmonds imprinted his intention to remain in Philadelphia in the forehead of Senators forward Colin Greening, his second fight in as many games to spark a team that hasn't had much fight at all in the last 2 weeks. "It was a rather mellow game," Simmonds said. "I was trying to do whatever I could to get the guys going.
