Claude Giroux says he needed wrist surgery because of Sidney Crosby

Claude Giroux had surgery on both of his wrists after the Flyers were eliminated from the playoffs last season, and now the assistant captain says Sidney Crosby is the reason why.

Giroux told the Timmons Press in Ontario that Crosby’s hacking throughout the playoffs injured him.

“[The scars] are from (Sidney) Crosby,” Giroux told the Timmons Press. “Every time we’d line up against each other for a face-off during our (2012 playoff) series, instead of going for the puck when it was dropped, he’d hack me across the wrists. I ended up playing the series against (New) Jersey with one of them fractured and had to go for surgery on both of them after we were out of the playoffs.”

The Flyers beat the Penguins in six games before losing to the Devils in five. The 24-year-old winger led the team with 93 points and 65 assists, and he racked up 17 points in the playoffs, though just 3 came in the second round.

Giroux should be fine for the start of the regular season. I mean the guy is still playing beer pong despite his wrist injuries — how bad could he be? And who knew that Crosby could do some actual damage to an opponent?

    Crosby is a dirty player. I used to have respect for him, but after his actions in the playoffs, he disgusts me.
