NHL: Philadelphia Flyers' Claude Giroux Agrees to 8-Year Extension

Jul 4 2013, 8:48pm CDT | by

Philadelphia Flyers center and captain Claude Giroux reportedly agreed to an eight-year extension on Thursday worth $64 million.

Claude Giroux will be a Philadelphia Flyer for at least eight more years. 

Giroux, the Flyers' center and captain, agreed to an eight-year extension valued at $64 million on Thursday, per the Associated Press. The report cited a person who has knowledge of the situation and who spoke on the condition of anonymity because Giroux has yet to sign the contract and the Flyers have not divulged the extension publicly. 

Prior to the agreement, the 25-year-old Giroux had a year remaining in his current contract which comes with a cap hit of $3.75 million, according to NBC Sports' Jason Brough. 

USA Today Sports' Randy Miller notes Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren and Giroux's agent Pat Brisson worked extensively on the deal this week. 

After scoring 28 goals and 93 points in the 2011-12 NHL season, Giroux mustered 13 goals and 35 assists for 48 points in a lockout-shortened season. Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette said Grioux's terrific leadership qualities carried him through a tough first year as Flyers captain.

"It was a tough year for a first-year captain, and I think he did a really good job. He has terrific leadership qualities. He's driven. He is an excellent teammate." 

Right after the Flyers missed last season's playoffs, Giroux suited up for Team Canada in the world championships. For the offseason, he said he will "go lift some weights and try to get faster and stronger. That's what the game's all about, how fast you can be and how strong you can be."

The development comes just a day after former Tampa Bay Lightning center Vincent Lecavalier agreed to a reported five-year contract worth $22.5 million with the Flyers.

It’s the deepest position in fantasy, and it’s not hard to imagine pivots owning seven of the top 10 spots on the scoring list by season’s end.
