Claude-Giroux

 

According to a report via the Associated Press, the Philadelphia Flyers have signed forward Claude Giroux, to a lucrative contract extension.

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux agreed to an eight-year extension worth over $64 million Thursday, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the contract has not been signed and the extension not revealed by the Flyers.

A two-time 25-goal scorer, Giroux is the Flyers’ top play-making offensive threat. He had 13 goals and 35 assists for 48 points in 48 games last season.

Who says hockey players don’t get paid, you just have to be really really good.
