Gatineau Olympiques forward Claude Giroux received the Guy Lafleur Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 2008 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoffs.

“Claude has had an outstanding season,” said Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren. “With the World Junior gold medal for Canada and now his run with Gatineau to the Memorial Cup, it has been great to see his development.”

 Giroux, 20, recorded 17 goals and 34 assists for 51 points and six penalty minutes in 19 games as Gatineau captured the President Cup Trophy as QMJHL champions. His 51 points and 34 assists led the QMJHL and he set a new team record for most points in a playoff year. He finished tied for second in the league in goals with 17.

A native of Hearst, Ontario, Giroux was named to the QMJHL First All-Team, after posting 106 points (38G,68A) in 55 regular season games. He led Gatineau in assists (68, tied for second in the QMJHL), points (106, second in the QMJHL), plus/minus (+40, third in the QMJHL), game-winning goals (8, tied for fifth in the QMJHL) and shorthanded goals (6, third in the QMJHL). He tied for first on the team in goals with 38 (tied for 13th in the QMJHL) and was named Olympiques’ Offensive Player of the Month for September, November and February/March.

Giroux was scoreless in two games for the Flyers this season after being recalled from Gatineau on February 22.

He posted six points (2G,4A) in seven games as a member of the gold-medal winning Canadian National Team at the 2008 IIHF World Under-20 Championships in Paradubice and Liberec, Czech Republic, was a member of the QMJHL Team at 2007 ADT Canada-Russia Challenge and of Team Canada at 2007 Canada/Russia Super Series, posting eight points (3G,5A) in eight games.

Giroux was drafted by the Flyers in the first round (22nd overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
