Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux experienced some local flavor Friday after arriving in Nashville for 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend.
Giroux and some friends visited the set of ABC's hit TV show "Nashville." Several stars of the show, including Chris Carmack, Hayden Panettiere and Jonathan Jackson, took a timeout between takes to meet with Giroux.
"It was nice to get a chance to meet a couple of those actors and we’ve been watching the show a little bit so we thought it would be a good opportunity to see how it works and behind the scenes," said Giroux.
Giroux will take part in the DraftKings Accuracy Shooting competition, the Gatorade NHL Skills Challenge Relay and the Discover NHL Shootout during the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Skills Competition at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports) and compete on the Metropolitan Division squad in the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday (5 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).
