FINALLY FREE of frustration, Claude Giroux glided toward center ice at the Flyers' practice facility yesterday and gingerly joined practice. Even though most of his teammates were trickling off the ice to finish preparing for last night's preseason game, Giroux was happy to be back.It was his first practice since coming up lame in the first 15 minutes of last Friday's first on-ice training camp session with what is believed to be a groin strain....

TORONTO - For most, Monday night would have induced a feeling of sheer panic. Jay Rosehill was left to sit in the stands in London, Ontario, for the Flyers' first preseason game. All he could do was watch as bearish newcomer Zack Stortini - a free-agent signee who is the same age, has 140 games more NHL experience and nearly double the penalty minutes - was given a solo shot to steal his meal ticket. Stortini, 29, took on two of Toronto's heavyweights, Frazer McLaren and Troy Bodie, and acquitted himself well.

THREE YEARS AGO, Brayden Schenn laced up for his first training camp with the Flyers with all eyes affixed to him. He was a highly touted first-round pick, referred to around hockey as the best player not yet skating in the NHL. It would be easy to look at Schenn's numbers - 40 goals and 43 assists in 183 games - and say that he hasn't quite lived up to the hype. There have been flashes, like the three-point game he produced against the Penguins in the playoffs during his rookie season.

IT TOOK all of 15 minutes for the Flyers and the fans at the Skate Zone to hold their breath. Flyers training camp opened yesterday and moments after coach Craig Berube blew his whistle to start skating drills, Flyers captain Claude Giroux was heading off the ice. The team announced later in the afternoon that Giroux would be sidelined for approximately 2 weeks with a lower body injury. The team also said he would not be available for comment. With that timetable, Giroux could miss the entire preseason, which ends on Oct. 2 with a game in Washington.

As star center Claude Giroux took a long, slow walk to the locker room Friday morning, you couldn't blame the Flyers if their season passed in front of their eyes. Fifteen minutes into their first day of camp in Voorhees, Giroux, the team's high-scoring captain, left the ice because of what the team later called a lower-body injury. New general manager Ron Hextall said Giroux would be sidelined for about two weeks. Giroux missed most of last year's camp after a bizarre golf injury in which he splintered his right index finger, requiring tendon surgery.

Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen, who will miss at least part of the season as he recovers from blood clots, apparently is making progress. It was announced Wednesday that he will be able to participate in the team's benefit golf invitational Sept. 16. "We got the good news this week - that he is able to play," said Scott Tharp, president of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall did not answer messages seeking an update on Timonen's condition Wednesday night.

After he spent a night in jail following a bizarre incident at an Ottawa bar, Flyers captain Claude Giroux issued an apology Thursday. "I regret my actions on Canada Day and sincerely apologize to my fans, teammates, and the Philadelphia Flyers organization for my misguided attempt at humor," Giroux said in a statement. Giroux, 26, was arrested at the bar Tuesday night for allegedly grabbing the buttocks of a male police officer repeatedly. Alcohol was believed to be involved. The Ottawa police said no charges would be filed.

LANE JOHNSON owes Claude Giroux. The Daily News on Tuesday reported that Johnson, the Eagles' first-round pick last year and their starting right tackle, tested positive for a banned substance and likely will be suspended for the first four games of this season. The Ottawa Sun yesterday reported that Giroux, the Flyers' captain and star center, allegedly repeatedly grabbed the backside of a male Ottawa police officer in a bar. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

AFTER THE playoff wins, the roar-inducing goals and the constant banter with Claude Giroux, Scott Hartnell will miss the meals at Spasso Italian Grill the most. Hartnell began stopping at Spasso at Front and Chestnut streets for pregame meals not long after he arrived in town in 2007. Each season, a few more players would join Hartnell in making Spasso a part of their game-day ritual. By last year, Hartnell had more than half the team hooked. And it wasn't just the food. Without any official designation or signage, Hartnell turned a neighborhood restaurant into an extension of the Flyers' locker room.
