Claude Giroux named NHL's Third Star of the Month

Claude Giroux is having strong season for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Despite the slow start which saw him register just seven assists and no goals in the team’s first 15 games of the season, Giroux has become better than a point-per-game player with 25 goals and 53 assists for 78 points in 74 games this season. He’s been the catalyst the Flyers have needed this season as the team is 19-2-1 when Giroux lights the lamp and 32-13-3 when he registers at least one point.

The month of March was especially good to Giroux as he registered six goals and led the NHL with 15 assists and 21 points in 14 games in the month. The Flyers certainly reaped the benefits of Giroux’s strong play as they went 9-3-2 in March.

With all of that taken into consideration, it is no surprise the NHL announced on Tuesday Giroux had won the league’s third star of the month. Bruins forward Jarome Iginla took home the first star leading the NHL with 15 goals in March and Red Wings’ forward Gustav Nyquist earned the second star by scoring 12 goals in March alone.

The reigning NHL third star hits the ice again tonight in St. Louis at 8:00 pm.
