Flyers captain Claude Giroux has yet to record a point in the 2013-14 season.
It has been no secret in the Flyers first four games that they have struggled to score. But of the players managing to get the points, one player in noticably absent.
Claude Giroux, the second-year captain, has no points through four games this season. Giroux suffered a hand injury in the offseason that threatened to delay his season debut. It didn't, but with his lack in point production through these four games, the question arose - is Giroux full healthy?
His new coach, Craig Berube, doesn't believe so.
"I think he’s fine, he’s healthy," Berube said. "I think G is trying a little bit too hard, personally. I think he gives everything he’s got out there. Sometimes it is too much. You try too hard and can’t accomplish the things you want to accomplish."
Giroux himself also took the focus away from his hand and assured it isn't his health but his confidence that is hurting four games into the season.
