Claude Giroux C PHI Aug 30 '78
Claude Giroux sustained a neck injury while playing in Germany for Eisbaren Berlin on Friday.
He was sent to the hospital by team doctors for evaluation, but told the Daily News that it was "just a little neck injury" and to "not read too much into it." Giroux said he feels fine and reports in Germany suggest he could return to the ice for practice as early as Tuesday. He has racked up 19 points in nine games overseas and we'll keep you posted when we learn more about his status.
