Huge Rumour in the Claude Giroux Case as Deadline Approaches

Published March 18, 2022 at 9:00

There are several serious reports circulating right now regarding the Claude Giroux trade, the biggest name available on the trade market heading into deadline day.

According to what reporter Adrian Dater is reporting, based on what he's heard, the Flyers would possibly acquire Owen Tippett, Matthew "Mackie" Samoskevich (first round pick, 24th overall in 2021) and a draft pick.

In return, the Panthers would receive Claude Giroux. (Possibly at 50% of his salary) Dater mentions that this is unconfirmed, but it's what he's heard and is the most likely scenario at this point.

Anthony SanFilippo seems to have the same information.

However, according to the renowned Pierre LeBrun, there is still no trade for Claude Giroux and the Colorado Avalanche GM still seems to be in the running.

Everything indicates that it will be between the Avalanche and the Panthers, but most likely the Panthers. (according to several sources, including Elliotte Friedman)

Please note that Giroux will not play Friday or Sunday with the Flyers. The team will keep him out of the game, until he is traded, by the trade deadline.

He played his last game of the season with the Flyers.

Here's a summary of where things stand right now in this matter. We'll keep you posted as soon as there are more developments.
