Even after 12 years in the NHL, Claude Giroux hasn't stopped impressing. The Flyers captain just completed his third consecutive 82 game season and led the club with 85 points (22G-63A). The versatile forward also continued to club the Flyers all-time leaderboard this year after playing in his 800th career game (3rd all-time), recorded his 500th assist (2nd all-time) and 700th NHL point (fourth all-time).

This summer, Giroux and his wife Ryanne are expecting to welcome a baby boy into the world, a first child for the couple. Soon, the Giroux household will be a family of five (we can't forget about Harvey and Charlie, obviously)!
