Flyers star Claude Giroux is going to need the next five-to-six weeks to recover after having surgery on his right index finger early today.

Giroux, 25, injured himself while golfing near his off-season home in Ottawa.

"Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux had successful surgery this afternoon on his right index finger performed by Dr. Katherine Boyd at the Ottawa Civic Hospital in Ottawa, Canada," Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said in a statement.

"Giroux was golfing today when his golf club shattered and splintered into his index finger. 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."

In 48 games with the Flyers last season, Giroux registered 13 goals and 35 assists for 48 points.
