Sources have confirmed to CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio that Giroux is contemplating surgery to repair his left hip and a sports hernia, which will require up to eight weeks in recovery if he chooses to undergo the procedure. According to the sources, the Flyers had been treating Giroux for the issue — which was nagging him all season — to avoid surgery, but the Flyers’ captain is now thinking it’s time to fix things permanently.
Given the timeline, Giroux will be back for training camp, as well as the World Cup of Hockey, if he has surgery before July.
Ah yes, there it is. The annual oh so that guy was actually hurt report. Explains a lot. Not a big deal either. G will be back and healthy before North Shore even closes for the summer.
