Elite Pernell McPhee Jersey Giroux was the face of Philly’s disappointing season after scoring only 14 goals, the fewest he had over a full season in his career. The five-time 20-goal scorer also dipped to 58 points, his lowest total since recording 47 in his second season back in 2009-10.
I think it was a bad season; a lot of things didn’t go our way, Giroux told Sporting News Canada. As a group, we have to learn from that. The only way to get better is to get motivated and move forward.

In the middle of an eight-year contract with a sizeable $8.275 million cap hit, Giroux is well aware that if the Flyers are to turn things around in the competitive Eastern Conference, it starts with him.
Burns is among the league’ scoring leaders, regardless of position. With 59 points, he’s third in the NHL, trailing only the Oilers’ Connor McDavid (67), the Penguins’ Sidney Crosby (65) and the Capitals’ Nicklas Backstrom (60). No defenseman has led the league in scoring since Bobby Orr (135 points) did it in 1974-75.
He’s a near-lock to win the Norris Trophy, given to the league’s most outstanding defenseman. He has a shot to win the Hart Trophy, given to the league’s most valuable player. A defenseman hasn’t won the Hart Trophy since Chris Pronger won it with the Blues in 1999-2000.
Burns is on pace to break team records he set in 2015-16 for goals (27) and points (75) in a season by a defenseman. In just six seasons with San Jose, Burns holds the franchise’s career records for goals (113) and points (304) by a defenseman, and is third in assists (191).
