Claude Giroux - Hockey
In today's mailbox was Claude Giroux a prospect for the Philadelphia Flyers. He now plays for the Philadelphia Phantoms of the AHL but formerly played for the Gatineau Olympic of the QMJHL. Claude scored 125 goals and over 300 points while playing in the Q. He was drafted by the Flyers in the 1st round 22nd overall in the 2006 draft after scoring 112 points in 63 games in his draft year. He was one of the most exposive players in the league and has 19 points in the AHL thus far this season. He made his NHL debut February 19, 2008 for the Flyers but has yet to score a point in the NHL. Claude was kind enough to sign 5 items for me 2 2007-08 H&P, 1 2006-07 H&P, 1 2008-09 Victory Rookie and 1 2006 draft card. Sadly the quality postal services managed to crease the Victory and the draft card. Thank you so much Claude and best of luck with your career.
