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.

Center Claude Giroux, who leads the Flyers with 29 points in 38 games, was named to his fourth NHL All-Star team on Wednesday. "It's a great honor," he said after an optional practice in Voorhees. "We have a lot of good players on this team, and to be the one going, there's a lot of pride and I'm pretty excited to go. " Someone asked Giroux if he had seen the all-star jerseys and told him the colors resemble those of the Flyers' archrivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins. "Oh, that's great," Giroux said sourly, sarcasm dripping The all-star tournament will be held in Nashville, Tenn., on Jan. 31. It will consist of three games played in a three-on-three format.

Playing for a hockey-crazed country, Team Canada has one mission in the forthcoming World Cup. Finishing second is "not even a question," Flyers center Claude Giroux said. In other words, nothing less than a gold medal is acceptable to the players and their fans. Giroux is on a Canada team that is so deep that he is expected to play on the fourth line. And Corey Perry, a six-time 30-goal scorer who had 32 tallies for Anaheim last season, may not even crack the lineup. Oh, Canada.

About 31/2 months after he underwent surgeries to repair his right hip and an abdominal tear, Flyers captain Claude Giroux said he is back at full strength and ready for the 2016-17 season. "I feel 100 percent," Giroux said Wednesday after a news conference to unveil the Flyers' 50th anniversary jerseys at One Liberty Observation Deck in Center City. "It's been a long road, but I was in good hands with the trainers in Philly, and I also got a lot of help [during rehabilitation] in Ottawa and right now I feel really good.

German Rubtsov C, 6-foot-2, 178 pounds Round 1, No. 22 overall Regarded as a slick playmaker and solid two-way player, the speedy Rubtsov had 12 goals and 26 points in 28 games for Russia's under-18 team last season.

Claude Giroux and Shayne Gostisbehere seem connected. Both had outstanding chemistry on the Flyers' top power-play unit this season, and both recently underwent hip and abdominal surgeries on the same day. And both could be added to their respective World Cup of Hockey teams this week. The 23-man rosters must be finalized by Friday. The eight-team, two-week tournament will be held in Toronto from Sept. 17 to Oct 1. Each team will carry 20 skaters and three goalies. Teams announced their first 16 roster selections in March.

SPURRED PERHAPS by a report out of Canada, general manager Ron Hextall on Saturday opened - just a crack - the iron curtain he has constructed around all things Flyers, revealing that two of his best players competed at the end of this season without much use of their core muscles. Two weeks after each was mysteriously ineffective in the Flyers' six-game playoff loss to the Capitals, the news that Claude Giroux and Shayne Gostisbehere both would require offseason hip and abdominal surgery was more explanatory than alarming.

If this were another year, or another era, or another mind-set in the history of the Flyers, the team would enter this offseason with the cool, rational bearing of a man whose pants are on fire. The team needs scoring on the forward lines. It has two good goaltenders. It has a potential wealth of capable young defensemen. It has prospects on the verge of making the league. This is a team good enough to make the playoffs, and with enough character to come back from a three-game hole against perhaps the best team in the NHL before being eliminated in the sixth game by a 1-0 score.

The Flyers' special teams' failure proved fatal in their series against Washington, which won the opening-round playoff matchup with a 1-0 Game 6 victory Sunday at the electric Wells Fargo Center. With the game scoreless, the Flyers couldn't score on a two-minute five-on-three in the second period, managing just two shots on that power play. "If we don't get through that," Capitals coach Barry Trotz said, "this building probably explodes. " "We just had to find a way to get a goal on the power play," captain Claude Giroux said.

THE HORN sounded with the puck a few feet from Jake Voracek's stick, his final stride of the season made with resignation, the clock finally expiring on the Flyers season nearly a week after un ugly storm of flung wristbands strongly implied that it already had. A final lull in a game pockmarked by too many of them greeted the sound, the slumped bodies of the 19,925 at Wells Fargo Center mirroring those bent over their sticks out on the ice. Disappointment,...

At one end of the Wells Fargo Center ice, the Washington Capitals had begun a celebration tinged with relief, and along the boards near the middle of the rink, Claude Giroux stayed bent over at the waist, not skating, not watching the Capitals rub each other's head and tap each other's stick, not doing much of anything but dwelling. "Not good enough," he said later. "I'm pretty frustrated with myself. Got to find a way. Doesn't matter how it is. Got to find a way. " Six games, and Giroux, the Flyers' captain and leader and most important and complete forward, had not scored a goal.
