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 MYSTERY surrounding Claude Giroux took another strange turn yesterday when he did not report for practice. After general manager Ron Hextall declared Giroux to be "fine" on Monday night, Giroux will likely miss at least the next two games with what the team is calling a "lower-body" injury. Tonight will be Giroux's first game missed because of injury since Dec. 19, 2011, breaking a streak of 197 consecutive games healthy. To help pick up the slack, the Flyers recalled first-round pick Scott Laughton last night.

The Flyers have lost eight straight regular-season games at Madison Square Garden, and if they hope to end that streak Wednesday night they'll have to do it without star center Claude Giroux. Giroux, who was tied for sixth in the NHL with 21 points entering Tuesday, probably will be sidelined for two games with an unspecified lower-body injury, general manager Ron Hextall announced. He said the Flyers captain suffered the injury Monday at practice. "I can't give a definitive time line, but I don't expect it to be long," Hextall said in a conference call with reporters late Tuesday afternoon.

Eric Lindros and John LeClair, two-thirds of the Flyers' famed Legion of Doom line, will enter the team's Hall of Fame before Thursday's game against Minnesota at the Wells Fargo Center. "Eric has been such a big part of my career, and to have him standing right there next to me will be quite immense," LeClair, who lives in Haverford, said in a conference call with Lindros and reporters Monday. "Philadelphia is where I played my best hockey," said Lindros, whose long feud with the organization ended a few years ago. "The fans in Philadelphia are extremely passionate.

EVER THE PEST, Scott Hartnell glided up the red line during warmups and playfully stole the puck from former teammate Claude Giroux. He also lofted a shot toward Steve Mason - which in the old days might have sparked an Ed Hospodar-style pregame donnybrook. Anything goes, Hartnell figured, if his antics could take the Flyers off their game and help Columbus rewrite a franchise record book filled with dubious marks. Whatever Hartnell did, it worked. The sluggish Flyers were held without an even-strength goal and fell to a Columbus roster littered with AHL fill-ins by a 4-3 score last night.

WHEN THE Wild come to town later this week, the Flyers and Wells Fargo Center staff will be taking extra precautions against the spread of germs after multiple Minnesota players were diagnosed with the mumps. Although it's an illness most often associated with children, it's vicious for adults. The illness recently has ravaged players from Minnesota, Anaheim and St. Louis. Wild defensemen Marco Scandella and Jonas Brodin were the latest to fall ill last week, following Keith Ballard, who was the first player diagnosed.

Claude Giroux says it will be "really strange" facing former linemate Scott Hartnell when the Flyers meet Columbus on Friday at the Wells Fargo Center. "When we played together, we were always joking about fighting when we played each other," the Flyers' captain said after practice Thursday in Voorhees. "Everybody loved him here in Philly, so it's going to be pretty special for him. " The Flyers will honor Hartnell with a video tribute, and Giroux expects the 32-year-old winger - sent to Columbus for R.J. Umberger and a fourth-round 2015 draft pick in June - to receive a warm reception.

BEFORE MOST of the Flyers took the ice for an hourlong practice, two players in gray non-contact jerseys spent about 20 minutes doing some light skating and stretching. One was Luke Schenn, the latest addition to a long list of injured Philadelphia defensemen. The other turned out to be center Ryan White, who underwent August surgery to repair a pectoral muscle. Andrew MacDonald, the rehabbing defenseman who was expected to skate yesterday as he works his way back from a right knee injury, did not take the ice. However, his absence doesn't signify a setback, according to coach Craig Berube, who said, "We'll see if he's there [today]

While the Flyers' Steve Mason and Jake Voracek said Friday's game against their former team, Columbus, was just another matchup on the schedule, two other players had different sentiments: Scott Hartnell and R.J. Umberger, wingers who were traded for each other last June in a salary-cap-related deal. "I'm a pretty emotional person, and to see the guys, and to be in that arena and not go in the home dressing room, and see the trainers and coaches and everyone that I love will be tough," Hartnell said on a conference call Wednesday from Columbus.

The Flyers continued their winning ways during their homestand, but it wasn't easy in their 4-3 win Saturday over the Colorado Avalanche at the Wells Fargo Center. The power-play unit scored three times and looked healthy, which is more than can be said about the organization's defensemen. A 4-0 lead, with three goals coming on the power play, also looked healthy before Colorado scored three unanswered goals and put some serious late-game pressure on goalie Steve Mason. It was the Flyers' third straight win, all at home.

ATLANTIC CITY - Craig Berube said it comes down to concentration. Jake Voracek said it's an upshot of better skating. Claude Giroux determined it has come from sound defensive play. Mark Streit said it's begotten in the breakout. Not even advanced statistics can put a finger on why the Flyers have fared significantly better at even strength over the last few weeks, but no one is complaining. Their improved 5-on-5 play has been the catalyst behind the current three-game winning streak.
