Claude Giroux Swatch Card

The last one in my batch of Panini's 2011-12 Pinnacle hits is yet another in the Game Night sub-set , card #38, Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux:
It is my second jersey card of his after this rookie one, and since he's one of my favourite forwards in the game, I will cherish it for a long time!

The Flyers almost made the playoffs this year despite beginning the season deprived of their top-4 defensemen from the previous year; many have blamed goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, but most Flyers have said he may have been their best player all year; others pointed at Giroux leadership skills, but most attest that he did everything in his power to try to raise his own -and his teammates' - level of play down the stretch. He'll likely have a shot at Olympic gold next year, part of a crowd of amazing young Canadian forwards with Jonathan Toews, Sidney Crosby, John Tavares, and Milan Lucic.
