According to a report from Flyers' beat writer Randy Miller, you can look for Claude Giroux to be named captain before the season opener. This is a move that was desired and expected by many Flyers fans.
The naming of Giroux has captain has not yet been made official by the team, but if true, you can expect to hear the announcement in the coming days.
I am a huge proponent of the decision to award Claude Giroux with the captaincy. He proved his ability to be the leader of this team throughout the 2011-12 season and deserves to wear the "C" on his jersey for a long time.
With the lockout ending early Sunday morning, players will prepare for the upcoming season. The National Hockey League has not announced the date on which their 48-50 game season will begin.
