Philadelphia Flyers

Giroux skated at left wing during Tuesday’s practice.

This summer the Flyers drafted Nolan Patrick at No.2 overall, creating a logjam down the middle in Philadelphia. With Nolan expected to make the roster out of training camp, the Flyers gave Giroux a look on the left side of Sean Couturier with Jakub Voracek on the wing. Couturier and Patrick would likely serve as the No.1 and No.2 centres with the likes of Valtteri Filppula and Jori Lehtera likely being the No.3 and No.4 pivots. The centre depth will allow the Flyers to get creative and putting Giroux on the wing with Couturier and Voracek could give them a dominant first line without sacrificing depth. It’s only been one day of practice, but Giroux would definitely see an uptick in fantasy value if he were to gain dual position eligibility (C/LW).

Giroux (leg) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Giroux missed the morning skate, but is listed as a game-time decision. He was listed as GTD on Saturday as well and did not come out for warmups, that is not likely to be the case tonight. Giroux did jump on the ice late in the skate just to shoot some pucks, so monitor his status during pre-game warmups.

Giroux (leg) is probable to play on Saturday in New Jersey.

Giroux left Saturday’s game with a leg injury and did not return. Giroux was cut near his ankle and he originally feared that he severed his Achilles tendon. "It was pretty scary," Giroux said. "I tried to get up, but it felt really weird. I tried to put pressure on it, but it didn't feel too good.” The injury obviously looked worse than it was and he is expected to be in the lineup tonight vs. the Devils.

Giroux (lower-body) will play tonight.

Giroux was originally ruled out for the next two games, but called GM Ron Hextall before the game tonight and said he felt “fine”. The Flyers got Giroux to the arena and he will be in the lineup tonight on a line with Brayden Schenn and Jakub Voracek. Giroux has 21 points (5G / 16A) in 16 games this season.

Giroux (lower-body) will take part in warmups tonight, despite not skating this morning.

Giroux reportedly walked into the arena with a walking boot. This comes a day after the Flyers said that Giroux was “fine” and then announced that he would miss the next two games. So Giroux will take part in warmups and should be considered a game-time decision.

Giroux will be out two weeks after suffering a lower-body injury in training camp.

With the start of the season two and a half weeks away, the Flyers caught a break with the severity of their captain's injury. Still, this is not the way Giroux wanted to start his season. However, it should not hurt his value on draft day, he should be ready for the Flyers' season opener on October 8th.
