Claude Giroux is out of quarantine and back at Flyers practice



Claude Giroux

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux is out of quarantine and back at practice.

Giroux’s wife, Ryanne, posted this heartwarming picture on Tuesday morning.

Alain Vigneault revealed last week that it was Giroux’s positive COVID test that sparked everything. He tested positive two weeks ago on the morning of the game against the Washington Capitals that was postponed. That caused the postponement and subsequent pause.

It was a long two weeks, but Giroux is out of quarantine and back at practice with the Flyers.

Unfortunately, Giroux was unable to return for the game at Lake Tahoe, but it’s great to see him back on the ice. Even with the two-week quarantine, he should be back in the lineup on Wednesday night against the Rangers.

Claude Giroux has 11 points (one goal, 10 assists) in 13 games this season. He is the heart and soul of the Flyers and getting him back is a great sign.

Justin Braun was also added to the COVID Protocol list two weeks ago, the same day as Giroux, so it’s possible that he is nearing a return as well.

As for the other Flyers players on the COVID list, they could be removed in the coming days.

Braun and Giroux were added to the list on February 9th. Morgan Frost (who has since been removed) and Voracek were added on the 11th. Scott Laughton and Oskar Lindblom joined the list the next day on the 12th. Travis Sanheim, who was on the list since the 8th, was removed on the 14th, but Konecny was added to the list.

Based on a two-week time period, Voracek, Laughton, and Lindblom may return for this weekend’s set of games in Buffalo against the Sabres. Konecny may be a different story, however.

No matter what, Claude Giroux is back and that’s a great thing for the Flyers.
