Flyers captain Claude Giroux out vs. Maple Leafs due to injury

Good times or bad times, PK Subban plays a hard game on the ice. But he is still a gentleman. So when he clipped Claude Giroux in open ice and it looked a little high, the Canadiens defenceman had to stop to make sure he was okay.

TORONTO – Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux will not play Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs due to an upper-body injury.

Giroux is considered day-to-day, according to a statement from Flyers general manager Ron Hextall.

It’s the first time this season that the 28-year-old from Hearst, Ont., has missed a game.

Over the last three seasons, Giroux has played in 211 of 212 regular-season games.

Giroux leads the Flyers with 49 points (16 goals, 33 assists) this season.
