As we continue our countdown to the start of training camps across the league, we continue our daily news piece here at The Station. Let’s take a look at some news.
As reported today, goaltender Jose Theodore may soon become a member of the Boston Bruins. TVA Sports reports that the goaltender is on the verge of signing a one year deal worth between $800,000 and $1.1 million. Theodore would serve at Tukka Rask’s backup. Jose spent the past two seasons with the Florida Panthers. He went 4-6-3 with a 3.29 GAA and .893 save percentage last season.
A bizarre thing happened to Flyers forward Claude Giroux this weekend. He will need 5-6 weeks of recovery after surgery on his right index finger. According to team officials, he was injured while playing golf in Ottawa. “Giroux was golfing today when his golf club shattered and splintered into his index finger,” general manager Paul Holmgren said in a statement. “Although there were no broken bones, there was some damage to his extensor tendons in his finger. He is expected to have a full recovery in 5-6 weeks.” Giroux’s father a Quebec newspaper that Claude hit a ball and the club split in two, one piece flying into the air and the other landing on his hand, cutting his finger. This is just an unlucky break for Giroux. I mean, I love golf. So I’m praying that this doesn’t happen to me in the coming weeks.
