Claude Giroux has had numerous special moments during his 15-season career with the Philadelphia Flyers, a career that could end in (gasp) another city.

There was his overtime goal that enabled the Flyers to beat Chicago, 4-3, and cut the series lead to two games to one in the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals — and gave them their first win in the Finals since 1987.

There was his jaw-dropping shift in which he decked Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby five seconds into Game 6 of a 2012 opening-round playoff matchup, and scored the game’s first goal 27 seconds later, sending the Flyers to a series-clinching 5-1 victory, and causing his coach, Peter Laviolette, to call him “the best player in the world.”
