Claude Giroux visited famous concussion specialist Dr. Ted Carrick in Atlanta last week after suffering a neck injury in Berlin in November. Carrick treated Penguins captain Sidney Crosby with his two concussions which had a lot of Flyers fans concerned about the extent of Giroux’s injury, especially after Giroux’s concussion history.
Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen is reporting that Giroux was back on the ice today skating for 90 minutes with Carleton University Ravens in Ottawa, Canada today.
“Giroux was on the ice for the full 90 minutes of the spirited workout, but he’s making no predictions on when he might possibly be ready to return to action, whether that’s in Philadelphia (if the NHL lockout ends) or back in Europe (if the lockout drags on).
‘It’s hard to say right now,’ said Giroux, who scored four goals and 15 assists in nine games with Berlin. ‘Obviously, I’m doing something every day to make sure I get back in game shape and I still have some things to make sure I’m 100 per cent.’”
