07:25 AM ET 08.16 | Add Claude Giroux to the list of athletes injured in a less conventional manner. [Giroux] suffered a right index finger injury that required surgery on Thursday and will need 5-6 weeks recovery. Giroux was preparing for Friday's Ottawa Sun Scramble golf event when his club shattered, necessitating surgery. He will miss the start of training camp. Sun sponsors were told on Thursday night that Giroux was forced to pull out because of a wrist injury suffered earlier in the day. LeDroitca d'Ottawa/Gatinea reported Giroux sliced four tendons -- not one. It also stated that the operation repaired all four, although none were completely severed. ... Any surgery this late into the summer would obviously affect Giroux's status for a successful start of the season.

Somehow this is Crosby's fault. First the DMV, then this.
Summer of mayhem.

Can't wait to find out the real story, then the Philly media keep it, then they trade him, then they talk about him drinking and it wasn't a golf club at all.

He was trying to make $14 the hard way.

I have my theories on this, but I can't give them away on 7th Avenue.

Nope. It's that damned Matt Cooke's fault. Guaranteed.

Actually, the foursome consisted of Giroux, Cooke, Crosby, and P.K. Subban.

Giroux never stood a chance.
