News: Giroux notched a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.

News: Giroux picked up two assists in Saturday's win over Columbus. Impact: He has 24 points in 19 games, a pace that would see him come close to a 100-point season. And that's not even enough to lead his team (Jakub Voracek has the bead on that one). Still, we like what we see, and he's a mandatory activation in our eyes.(RotoWire, )

News: Giroux (lower body) recorded four shots in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to the Rangers. Impact: Giroux was expected to miss Wednesday's game after blocking a shot in practice, but ended up being just fine. The fact that he skated 25:45 TOI suggests that he was not limited at all by the injury and should be considered fully healthy moving forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Giroux suffered a lower-body injury during Monday's practice and will likely miss the Flyers' next two games. "I believe it will be days as opposed to weeks," said general manager Ron Hextall, regarding an expected recovery timetable for the star forward. Impact: Giroux was believed to be fine after he was examined by team doctors Monday night after hurting himself in practice, but his condition had taken a turn for the worse once he was reevaluated Tuesday morning. The Flyers have already officially ruled him out for Wednesday's game against the Rangers and it seems likely that he'll be a long shot to play Thursday versus the Wild as well, given the team's desire to have him rest for multiple days. As a result, it looks like Giroux, who has netted five goals and 21 total points over 16 games, will turn his focus on returning in time for Saturday's home date with Columbus.(RotoWire, )

News: Giroux scored a power-play goal for the second straight game and added an assist in Friday's loss to Columbus. Impact: It was another laser from the Flyers' captain, who is now riding a four-game point streak, compiling three goals and seven points in that span. Giroux is now up to 20 points (five goals) in 15 games this season, to go with a plus-5 rating. A good sign for fantasy owners is Giroux is shooting the puck like it's his day job. He has recorded seven shots on goal in two straight games, and has now been credited with 72 shots on goal this season -- second most in the NHL. Keep this stud rolling.(RotoWire, )
