Jackets Demote Giroux

News: Alexandre Giroux was sent to Springfield on Monday, the Blue Jackets' official Twitter feed reports.
Analysis: The decision follows his presence in the press box as a healthy scratch Saturday night, so it could be a few games before Alexandre Giroux gets another look with the big club.

Jackets' Giroux Out Saturday

News: Alexandre Giroux will be a healthy scratch Saturday against Philadelphia, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: This will be Alexandre Giroux's first DNP since he joined the Blue Jackets on October 15. He remains without a point since he scored a goal in his first game of the year.

Giroux Scores In Blue Jackets Debut

News: Alexandre Giroux scored a goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Stars.
Analysis: He did his job in terms of providing a spark to the Blue Jackets' struggling second line, but the goal came on his only shot on goal and he was a minus-1 for the game. He also took a dumb third period penalty that led to a back-breaking power-play goal for Dallas. There any many reasons why Alexandre Giroux's prolific minor league numbers have never translated to the NHL, and he still has a lot to prove before his spot in the lineup should be considered secure.

Giroux Joins Top-Six For Blue Jackets

News: Alexandre Giroux will skate on the second line with R.J. Umberger and Antoine Vermette on Saturday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: On another team this would be a prime placement, but given that neither Vermette nor Umberger has a point yet this season, we don't recommend you take a flyer on Alexandre Giroux just yet.

Alexandre Giroux

Columbus Recalls Giroux

News: The Blue Jackets recalled forward Alexandre Giroux from AHL Springfield Thursday, The Blue Jackets' official Twitter reports.
Analysis: The former AHL MVP was recalled in time for Saturday's tilt with the Stars. Alexandre Giroux has bounced between the AHL and NHL for the past ten years. He'll likely spend another season moving back and forth frequently.

Jackets Send Giroux To Springfield

News: Alexandre Giroux has been sent to Springfield (AHL), Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He was placed on waivers a few days back, but the Jackets wanted to make sure Derek MacKenzie (knee) was ready for the regular season opener before sending Alexandre Giroux down.

Blue Jackets' Giroux Placed on Waivers

News: Alexandre Giroux was placed on waiver Saturday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Alexandre Giroux will stay with the team for the next few days, because injuries may force the Jackets to call him back off waivers.

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Giroux Signs Two-Way Deal With Columbus

News: Giroux has signed a two-way way deal with Columbus, 630 CHED's Dan Tencer reports.
Analysis: Tencer adds that the Oilers weren't thrilled with Giroux's performance in the AHL playoffs, noting that his "lack of speed was fatal at the NHL level." In any case, the Blue Jackets will take a look at him as a depth center, given all his success in the minors overall.

3/23/2011

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Oilers Reassign Giroux

News: The Oilers have assigned Giroux to AHL Oklahoma City, the team's official Twitter page reports.
Analysis: Giroux has notched two points (1G, 1A) in eight games with the big club this season and will likely return if the injury bug strikes the Oilers' wingers again.

3/17/2011

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Giroux Recalled By Oilers

News: The Oilers have recalled Giroux from AHL Oklahoma City, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Fellow forwards Chris Vande Velde and Ryan O'Marra were also recalled by the Oilers. With Edmonton's forward unit so banged up, there will be opportunities for some fresh faces (like Giroux) to step up in both real and fantasy terms.

3/15/2011

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Giroux Demoted By Oilers

News: The Oilers have assigned Giroux to AHL Oklahoma City, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Giroux appeared in five games with the Oilers since his March 5 recall, notching a goal and an assist. He figures to be back up soon enough when the Oilers are looking for some depth up front.

3/5/2011

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Giroux Recalled By Oilers

News: The Oilers have recalled Giroux from AHL Oklahoma City, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Giroux, who has 29 goals and 36 assists for 65 points in 61 AHL games this season, is slated to skate on the Oilers' third line against the Avs on Saturday.

Alexandre Giroux

Capitals send pair to AHL

News: The Capitals sent forwards Keith Aucoin and Alexandre Giroux to Hershey of the AHL on Thursday.
Analysis: Aucoin and Giroux know this story all too well. They have been recalled and demoted plenty over the last few seasons. They will chip in at times for Washington, but clearly shouldn't be owned in Fantasy until up in the NHL on a full-time basis.

12/9/2009

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Giroux has two assists since recall

News: Capitals C Alexandre Giroux failed to record a point and finished at minus-1 in 8:53 of ice time Wednesday against the Sabres. He also took two shots. He has no goals and two assists in his last six games.
Analysis: Giroux has been with Washington since his recall in late November. He has spent most of the season in the minors. Giroux has done well scoring in the AHL, but he just hasn't cracked the Capitals' roster on a full-time basis. He is not worth owning in Fantasy.

10/28/2009

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

A. Giroux shipped back to AHL

News: The Capitals have assigned C Alexandre Giroux back to the AHL.
Analysis: Giroux was the AHL MVP in 2008-09 after he totaled 60 goals and 97 points, but has minimal seasonal Fantasy appeal until he's a fixture in the nation's capital.

10/23/2009

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Giroux scores after recall Thursday

News: Capitals C Alexandre Giroux scored shortly after his recall Thursday from Hershey of the AHL. Giroux put Washington up 2-1 after he beat Thrashers goalie Ondrej Pavelec 8:00 into the first period.
Analysis: Giroux was the AHL MVP in 2008-09 after he totaled 60 goals and 97 points. He had 10 points (five goals) in six games this season with Hershey and seems too far advanced for the minors. However, Washington is finding it tough to keep Giroux on the roster. If he keeps scoring, they might change their tune. Still, Giroux has minimal Fantasy appeal until further notice.

2/8/2009

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Capitals return two to AHL

News: The Washington Post reports the Capitals sent goalie Michal Neuvirth and forward Alexandre Giroux to Hershey of the AHL Sunday.
Analysis: Neuvirth served as Jose Theodore's backup the past three games and could be back by Wednesday's game against the Rangers since Washington is without a backup goalie now that Brent Johnson (hip) is out. Neuvirth and Giroux are just organizational depth at this time and have little to no Fantasy value in seasonal formats.

A. Giroux break's Hull's record

News: CBC.ca reports that Capitals prospect C Alexandre Giroux scored in his 15th straight AHL game Sunday, breaking Brett Hull's old record.
Analysis: Amazingly, Giroux has been up to the NHL five times during the streak but has yet to stick around for very long. He has 22 goals during his current streak and this news should create some ripples in keeper leagues.

12/29/2008

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Capitals send A. Giroux down

News: The Capitals have sent C Alexandre Giroux down to the AHL.
Analysis: Giroux was up from the AHL to help the injury-riddled Caps. Ignore him in all formats.

12/11/2008

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Giroux scores 1st goal in a while

News: Capitals C Alexandre Giroux scored an NHL goal for the first time since March 2007 when Washington beat the Bruins 3-1 on Wednesday.
Analysis: Giroux is up from the AHL to help the injury-riddled Caps, but he'll probably be back in the minors soon. Ignore him in all formats.

12/7/2008

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Capitals add Giroux to roster

News: Washington recalled forward Alexandre Giroux from Hershey (AHL) before Sunday's game against the Hurricanes. He didn't have a point in 11:48 of ice time and finished at even.
Analysis: The Capitals have been devastated by injury recently, so a spot opened up for the AHL's leading scorer Giroux, who had 30 points. He has solid two-way skills, but Giroux has been a career minor leaguer and could be headed back there shortly. Ignore him until further notice.

2/26/2008

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Giroux, Motzko switch teams

News: The Atlanta Thrashers sent C Alexandre Giroux to the Washington Capitals for LW Joe Motzko on Tuesday.
Analysis: Giroux hasn't played this season in the NHL and has four points in 10 games in his career. Motzko, meanwhile, has played 19 games over the past four seasons with three goals and two assists. Neither player has any Fantasy value.

7/16/2007

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

C Giroux added by the Thrashers

News: The Atlanta Thrashers signed Alexandre Giroux, formerly of the Washington Capitals, to a multi-year contract on Friday. No terms of the deal were disclosed.
Analysis: Giroux posted two goals and four points in limited time with Washington in 2006-07. Avoid him on Draft Day, as his playing time will likely be less with a more talented roster in Atlanta.

3/19/2007

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Giroux pots first two NHL goals

News: Alexandre Giroux notched his first NHL goal in Friday's game against Toronto and he followed that up with a goal in Sunday's game at Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Giroux is best used as a reserve in larger Fantasy leagues or as a prospect in long-term keeper formats.

1/10/2007

Alexandre Giroux, LW, CLB

Alexandre Giroux

Caps honor C Alexandre Giroux

News: LW Tomas Fleischmann, C Alexandre Giroux and D Lawrence Nycholat were honored by the Washington Capitals before Tuesday's game against the Flyers, as they were named to the AHL All-Star game.
Analysis: Giroux is playing very sparingly for the Capitals and will likely be returned to the AHL club so he can participate. He has very little Fantasy appeal.
