Flyers, Giroux still negotiating extension

The Philadelphia Flyers continue their contract negotiations with captain Claude Giroux, who has one-year left on his current contract.

Giroux, 25, registered 13 goals and 35 points for 48 points in 48 games with the Flyers this past season.

The Flyers have been trying to get Giroux locked up to a long-term extension, but the two sides remain in ongoing dialogue.

Giroux, who is set to earn $5 million next season, though his annual salary cap hit is $3.75 million, is believed to be looking for an eight-year extension worth north of $7 million per season.

According to a source close to negotiations, Giroux is hopeful a deal will get ironed by before July 5, the first day in which he can sign an extension.

The native of Hearst, Ontario, has played in 333 career NHL regular-season games and has accumulated 91 goals and 200 assists for 291 points, a plus-18 rating and 135 penalty minutes.

Giroux was originally drafted 22nd overall by the Flyers in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
