Top Claude Giroux News

  • Senators' Claude Giroux: Opens scoring in loss

    Giroux scored a goal on four shots in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Giroux went three weeks between goals, but the Senators' schedule meant that was just a six-game gap between tallies. The 35-year-old had two assists in that span. He's up to six goals, 17 points, 46 shots on net and a plus-4 rating through 18 appearances this season. As long as he's in a top-line role, Giroux should continue to hover around a point-per-game pace.

  • Senators' Claude Giroux: Three points in Toronto

    Giroux scored two goals and added an assist in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

    The veteran forward extended his point streak to five games with the performance, a stretch in which he's racked up four goals and nine points. Giroux's thriving on a line with Tim Stutzle and Mathieu Joseph, and after falling just short of a point-a-game pace in 2022-23, the 35-year-old has found another gear to begin the current campaign with five goals and 14 points through 11 contests.

    He wired a perfect pass to Dominik Kubalik, whose wrist shot beat Cam Talbot from the slot on the power play in the last minute of the second period. Giroux has put up points in three straight games (one goal four assists), and he co-leads the Senators with 10 points, including eight assists, in nine games.

  • Senators' Claude Giroux: Two points in win

    Giroux scored a goal on three shots and added an assist in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Capitals.

    Giroux's second-period tally was upheld on a video review for offside, and he also helped out on Jake Sanderson's goal in the third. This was Giroux's second multi-point effort of the campaign. He's up to one goal, four helpers, 13 shots on net, five blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through four contests, performing well in a top-six role.

  • Senators' Claude Giroux: Records assist Sunday

    Giroux recorded an assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Lightning.

    Giroux has racked up three helpers to open the season but is still looking for his first goal despite putting 10 shots on net in his three outings. In his first season with Ottawa, the veteran center racked up a career-best 35 goals, including seven with the man advantage. Barring any setbacks, Giroux should continue to be a top-end offensive producer for the Senators moving forward.

  • Senators' Claude Giroux: Practicing Thursday

    Giroux missed practice Wednesday as he was under the weather. He has not found the back of the net in his last nine games, but does have five assists. Giroux has 28 goals and 71 points in 74 games this season, his best year since 2018-19 when he had 85 points for the Flyers.

  • Senators' Claude Giroux: Dealing with illness

    Giroux is under the weather and missed practice Wednesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Giroux is currently stuck in a nine-game goal drought but has racked up 28 shots and five assists over that stretch. Despite the goal slump, the veteran should be capable of offering top-half fantasy value if he can suit up versus the Flyers on Thursday. If not, Mathieu Joseph or Drake Batherson could be in line for a promotion to the top trio.
