Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux failed to meet expectations in 2016-17, managing just 14 goals in 82 games.
Many fans in Philadelphia are counting on bounce-back season, however, as Giroux is still a tremendous talent who hates losing. A compilation of Giroux's best moments in the shootout is currently making it's way around the internet. It's the perfect pump up for the 2017-18 season.
Giroux has some of the silkiest hands in the game and there's plenty of reason to believe he'll get back on track this season. The emergence of several prospects, the draft selection of Nolan Patrick and the addition of goaltender Brian Elliott have the Flyers looking like a completely different team this time around.
