Report: Flyers Claude Giroux wants to go to Colorado Avalanche or 2 other teams

The captain of the Philadelphia Flyers is willing to waive his no-trade clause to go to the Colorado Avalanche or a couple of other teams, as reported by Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now.

The Flyers have been heavily scouting the Avalanche' farm team, the Colorado Eagles, in recent days.

If a trade to the Colorado Avalanche doesn't work out for Giroux, his alternatives would be the Minnesota Wild or the St. Louis Blues.

The highly touted 34-year-old has been Philadelphia's best player for many years, posting an impressive 894 points in 987 games over a span of 16-seasons.

He is currently in the final year of a massive 8-year / $66.2 million contract with an average annual cap hit of $8,275,000.

His career-high being 102 points (34 Goals, 68 Assists) in 82 games back in the 2017-18 season.

This season, Giroux currently has 36 points (15 Goals, 21 Assists) in 44 games for the struggling Philadelphia Flyers who sit at the bottom of the Metropolitan division with 38 points (15-24-8) in 47 games.
