Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux will not play Tuesday against the Carolina Hurricanes (7 p.m. ET; TCN-PH, FS-SE, NHL.TV), general manager Ron Hextall said Monday.
Giroux sustained an upper-body injury late in the third period of the Flyers' 3-2 shootout win against the Montreal Canadiens on Friday when he was hit by Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban.
He did not play in the Flyers' 5-4 overtime win Saturday against the Toronto Maple Leafs and was classified as day-to-day. It was the first game of the season he had missed.
In 57 games this season, Giroux leads the Flyers with 49 points and his 16 goals are third.
