UPDATED: Flyers GM Ron Hextall announced that Claude Giroux will be out approximately two weeks due to his lower-body injury he suffered on Day 1 of the on-ice portion of training camp.
Approximately 15 minutes into Day 1 of Flyers training camp, captain Claude Giroux left the ice to what was later announced as a lower-body injury.
According to general manager Ron Hextall, Giroux is still being evaluated and the club is not sure of his status at this point. What the Flyers do know is that this his injury is a new occurance and was not anything that had been bothering him in the off-season.
"This just happened today. Its the first day of camp and guys go 100 miles per-hour and things happen," added Hextall. "Obviously its not the way you want to start. That's the hand we were dealt and we're going to deal with it."
