Claude Giroux says he is fine despite returning to North America for tests on his injured neck.
"I'm fine, I'm just making sure that I am 100 percent," he said Tuesday afternoon. "I will be fine." Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said his limited understanding of the situation is that Giroux is returning for "evaluation and precaution" for what was "diagnosed" as a minor neck injury. Philadelphia's star player missed four games last season because of a concussion, so there has been some concern regarding the injury. adamant
