PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux had surgery on his right index finger after getting injured on a golf course in Ottawa.
Giroux sustained tendon damage when a golf club shattered and splintered into his finger Thursday. It’s unknown what caused the club to shatter.
“Although there were no broken bones, there was some damage to his extensor tendons in his finger,” Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said in the statement. “He is expected to have a full recovery in 5-6 weeks.”
TALK ABOUT A HOLE IN ONE. Only about a month until training camp, gotta toughen up. Seriously though way to shatter your finger on a drive, relax bro lets pump the brakes a bit this aint the Waterbury Open.
