Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Claude Giroux
Claude Giroux was born January 12, 1988 in Hearst, Ontario. The first round, 22nd overall draft pick of the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Giroux honed his skills in the QMJHL with the Gatineau Olympiques.

A great playmaking forward, Giroux amassed a staggering 321 points over three seasons in the "Q". During his stint in the league, Giroux was called up by the Flyers' AHL affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms, for five games late in their 2006-07 regular seasons. The following year, Girox completed his junior career and appeared in a pair of NHL games with the Philadelphia Flyers.

In 2008-09 Giroux would split time between the AHL and NHL, but would manage to record a respectable 27 points in 44 games for the Flyers.

Giroux had a break out year during the 2011-12 season where he set career highs in goals and points, scoring 28 goals and 93 points in 77 games. In this season as well he set a Flyers record by scoring the most points in a single playoff game with 6.

After that season, Giroux was widely considered one of the best players in the NHL.

On the international stage, Giroux has represented Canada three times. This is highlighted by a Gold Medal at the 2008 World Junior Championship. He also appeared in two World Championships (2013, 2015) winning a Gold Medal in 2015.
