RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

After a breakout, 93-point season in 2011-12, Giroux calmed down a bit last year. He still amassed a respectable 47 points in 48 games and was among the league leaders in most offensive categories. After signing an eight-year extension in the offseason, he'll look to maintain his elite status. He figures to be a target in the opening rounds of most drafts, but exercise caution -- he underwent surgery on Aug. 15 to repair damage to an extensor tendon on his right index finger that was cut after a golf club shattered and then splintered into his hand on a shot. Tendons are notoriously slow healers and fingers crossed (literally) the injury was restricted to the tendon and not the nearby nerves. While he has begun skating drills, he'll likely miss most of the preseason games.

2012-13

Giroux is coming off a breakout, career-high 93-point season that saw him become one of the league's premier forwards, registering 65 assists to go with 28 goals. The young and incredibly talented player will be fantasy gold in the 2012-13 season if he can avoid injury. Count on Giroux for another huge season as he is developing into one of the league's best. He underwent surgery on both wrists this past offseason, but all signs point to Giroux being healthy for training camp. Despite playing in just 11 playoff games, Giroux was one of the league's top postseason scorers, to give you an idea of the talent the Hearst, Ontario native possesses. Expect to pull the trigger on Giroux early if you want him on your roster.

2011-12

Giroux had his breakthrough season with career highs in nearly every category, including goals (25), assists (51), points (76), PIMs (47) and plus-minus (plus-20). And at 23 years of age, it's possible that Giroux still has some sizable upside left to realize. He'll likely center the Flyers' second line behind Daniel Briere this season.

2010-11

Giroux is the epitome of potential and upside at this point of his career. He understandably went through some cold streaks last year, but he showed everything the talent scouts saw during his hellacious tear through the minor league circuit during the playoffs last season, posting 21 points in 23 games. At just 22-years old heading into the 2010-11 season, it's hard to see Giroux's production go anywhere but up, especially with the talent surrounding him.

2009-10

After making his NHL debut with a brief two-game run in Philly for the 2007-08 season at 20 years old, Giroux was up for good in late December and he wasted little time flashing the potential that has labeled him one of the top up-and-coming players in the game following his three-year stretch of lighting up junior hockey with 321 points in 187 contests. In 42 games with the Flyers, Giroux tallied 27 points (9 G, 18 A) and did not look the part of a very young rookie, displaying a strong two-way game that is quickly earning him place next to Richards and Carter when the coaching staff talks about the team's elite players. He projects as an eventual top-line winger, but that may happen sooner than later even with a talented group of other young forwards around him. This time around, the Flyers appear willing to move Giroux to center, while giving albatross Daniel Briere a fresh start on the wing.

2008-09

Giroux played in two games for the Flyers last year after finishing second in the QMJHL with 106 points. He also finished third with a plus-40 rating and recorded 51 points (17 G, 34 A) in 19 QMJHL playoff games. He'll get a shot at making the team and could be a nice sleeper given the enormous potential at the offensive end.

2007-08

Giroux is a fantastic skater and his speed allows him to be an elite playmaker. This past season with Gatineau of the QMJHL, Giroux had 48 goals and 112 points in just 63 games. He can provide instant offense, something the Flyers are sorely lacking right now. The Flyers would be wise to give Giroux a shot to make the team this season, but it's still possible that he will return to Gatineau for the third straight season.

2006-07

The speedy first round pick should return to juniors for this upcoming season.

2005-06

Giroux won the rookie scoring title in the QMJHL with 103 points, which was good enough to put him 11th overall on the scoring list for the entire league. He's shifty with incredible vision, and has a knack for making pinpoint passes to his teammates. Right now, he's a real flyweight (5'11" and 169 lbs) so he's going to have to add some bulk to be able to stand up to the rigors of the NHL. But with his clever abilities, he will give the Flyers a real boost in the speed department.
