Giroux was forced to exit a game Dec. 10 against the Tampa Bay Lightning after taking a knee to the head from teammate Wayne Simmonds. He has since been battling post-concussion symptoms, and has been forced to miss the team’s previous four games.

The 23-year-old currently is tied for the NHL lead in total points with 16 goals and 23 assists. Currently Henrik Sedin and Phil Kessel each have 39 points on the season as well, however they have both played in 33 games to Giroux’s 28.
