Chris Pronger, Sidney Crosby, Claude Giroux, Milan Michalek and now Jeff Skinner. The list of superstars having the dreaded label of being out indefinitely with a concussion continues to grow.

Players slow to adopt new helmet

Sidney Crosby came back -- and soon was forced out of the Pittsburgh Penguins lineup with another concussion -- with nearly the same helmet. Claude Giroux, like many in the NHL, wears the same brand helmet as the gloves, sticks and skates he uses as part of a sponsorship agreement. His fellow concussed Philadelphia Flyers teammate Chris Pronger didn't change his helmet despite...

Flyers' Giroux a game-time decision

Philadelphia Flyers leading scorer Claude Giroux will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Dallas Stars. Giroux suffered a concussion when he was hit in the head by the knee of teammate Wayne Simmonds during a Dec. 10 game against Tampa Bay. He has missed the past four games because of post-concussion symptoms. The 23-year-old has 16 goals and 23 assists...

Flyers' Giroux flourishes in return with four-point night

Claude Giroux collected a goal and three assists in his return from a four-game absence due to concussion-like symptoms as the Philadelphia Flyers maintained their mastery of the Dallas Stars with a 4-1 road triumph on Wednesday.

Giroux ‘Close’ to Returning to Flyers Line-Up

During Saturday afternoon’s debacle against the Boston Bruins, Claude Giroux was dressed in a button down shirt and tie, watching the spectacle from the press box.

The NHL's Best Player

Claude Giroux just might be the best player in the league not named Sidney Crosby. Giroux is currently leading the league in scoring with 39 points, despite missing the last four games with a concussion. His 16 goals are four behind league leader Steven Stamkos and he is the best player on the Eastern Conference's second best team. His ascension to élite status is even more...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings 12/22/11

After a tough start to last night's game in Dallas, the Flyers went on to have relatively little trouble in dispatching a good Stars team by a 4-1 score. The Stars had no solutions to solving the returning Claude Giroux and his linemates, and the Flyers methodically dismantled their opponent over the course of the game. Although the Stars have been the NHL's best comeback...

Claude Van DAMN!

Congratulations to all Claude Giroux owners out there (and I’m not talking about his 4 points yesterday).  I’m talking about the fact that he returned from a concussion after missing just 10 days.  Now maybe it’s because he’s never been concussed before (which I find hard to believe), but more than likely he’s just one of those players who doesn’t have long lasting...
