It’s finally official. Paul Holmgren announced on Tuesday evening that Claude Giroux has been named the 19th Captain of the Philadelphia Flyers.
Claude commented via a statement on the Flyers website:
“Obviously, this is a huge honor,” Giroux said. “There have been a lot
of great captains here in the past. Along with this comes a lot of
responsibility which I am prepared for. Being named captain is not
really going to change the way I play on the ice and act off the ice.
But I am very excited about this opportunity.”
Earlier in the day we posted about Claude being ranked the third best hockey player in the world by TSN.
Congrats to G on the honor. Time to lead.
