Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux had his 500th NHL point Saturday.

Giroux, who had missed the past three games because of an upper-body injury, returned Saturday against the Arizona Coyotes and scored a power-play goal with 2:19 remaining in the first period to give the Flyers a 2-1 lead.

In 554 games in nine seasons, all with the Flyers, Giroux has 161 goals and 339 assists. He leads the Flyers this season with 50 points in 58 games. 

Defenseman Mark Streit had three assists in the first period to give him 400 points in the NHL. It was his second three-assist game of the season; he also had three assists Oct. 21 against the Boston Bruins. 

Streit, 38, has 89 goals and 311 assists in 696 games with the Montreal Canadiens, New York Islanders and Flyers.
