Claude Giroux Out Indefinitely with Concussion

Dec 13, 2011, 11:45 AM EDT

Bad news for Flyers fans as their leading scorer and most entertaining player, Claude Giroux, is out with a concussion.

Yesterday, Paul Holgmgren said that Claude Giroux was suffering “whip lash,” indicating that it was a neck issue and not a concussion after getting kneed in the head over the weekend by Wayne Simmonds, but after not feeling well over, it’s been determined today that G has a concussion.

“Claude reported not feeling
very good today. Over the past few days, his symptoms have gradually
gotten worse.  He will be out indefinitely with a concussion,” Paul Holmgren said.

As Matt wrote about last night, the NHL concussion plague rages on. With Flyers Chris Pronger and Brayden Schenn joining the likes of Sidney Crosby and Mike Richards, the number of stars watching the game from the sideline keeps rising.

Better to be safe and cautious, for sure, but damn if that doesn’t give the fans at home a more boring product.
