According to Pierre LeBrun of TSN in a report on Friday, Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux of Hearst, Ontario will miss the Canadian Olympic orientation camp for the men's hockey team in Calgary that starts Sunday because of a broken index finger.
Giroux suffered the injury while golfing in Ottawa.
Despite the injury, Giroux should be able to suit up for the Flyers when their regular season begins on October 2 when they play host to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Last season, Giroux led the Flyers with 35 assists and 48 points. Overall it was a disappointing year for the Flyers hockey club as they missed the playoffs, finishing six points back of the New York Islanders in the Eastern Conference standings.
Giroux does have experience playing for team Canada in the past. He won a gold medal with the Canadians at the 2008 World Junior Hockey Championship in Pardubice, Czech Republic.
A total of 46 players are meeting in Calgary from Sunday to Wednesday to bond and attend information sessions leading up to the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.
