“Hopefully it’s going to be hit,” said Giroux, who has been working with several developers since the beginning of the season to launch it. “It’s a good cause and I really wanted to help out my hometown, who came up with this great idea and right now it’s going very well. ”
Flyers fans and fans of Giroux will have access to news, videos, his latest goals as well as a multitude of photos of Claude and several articles.
Visitors will be able to shop on-line at the website. The virtual store will offer a wide range of items featuring him, as well as autographed jerseys.

The website’s primary focus for a good cause.
Originally from Hearst, Ontario, Giroux announced in October of 2010 that he had chosen to associate himself with the Notre-Dame Hospital Foundation in Hearst.
“I think it’s a good cause and a lot of people back home are putting a lot of time into it, so it should be a pretty good site for fans visit,” said Giroux.
The partners of the foundation then decided to join forces and first raise funds for the construction of a new physiotherapy and rehabilitation centre named, the Claude-Giroux Centre.
"The construction of the new Centre Claude-Giroux Centre is a big project with an estimated cost of around $700,000. We hope this website will prove to be an excellent and innovative way to raise funds for this project", declared France Dallaire, member of the Foundation and CEO of the Notre-Dame Hospital.
Thanks to the support of Claude Giroux
, the dream of the physiotherapy department employees may soon materialize. This wonderful project will make it possible to improve the quality of the care offered to the people of the community and will therefore open the way to the eventual diversification of services, all aimed at improving the quality of the care offered to the people of Hearst and area.
“I try to be as involved as I can be, but like I said I’m pretty lucky to have a lot of people to help me run the web site with jersey’s, t-shirts on sale for the foundation, so everyone can help out,” added Giroux.
As for the new-look CG28 logo, Claude never expected it, but loves the look the designer came up with.
“I think it’s a pretty good look and is very stylish, hopefully the kids and everyone else like it.”
