Claude Giroux Has Surgery on Finger
Claude Giroux underwent surgery to repair torn tendons in his right index finger Thursday.
Here is the statement from Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren on Claude Giroux's injury:
Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux had successful surgery this afternoon on his right index finger performed by Dr. Katherine Boyd at the Ottawa Civic Hospital in Ottawa, Canada. Giroux was golfing today when his golf club shattered and splintered into his index finger. Although there were no broken bones, there was some damage to his extensor tendons in his finger. He is expected to have a full recovery in 5-6 weeks."
He should be recovered in time to start the regular season. In the worst-case scenario, Giroux could miss a couple games to start the year.
