Claude Giroux‘s agent, Pat Brisson, wants you to know his client is doing just fine.

Brisson tells Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com that Giroux is healthy even in spite of his stay in Atlanta to see the same specialist to treat Sidney Crosby‘s concussion.

“There is nothing wrong here, Claude is doing great,” Brisson said from his office in Los Angeles.

“I don’t speak lightly. I’m not one of those who would speak from one side of my mouth.”

Giroux suffered a head injury two weeks ago playing in Germany, but reports since then have stated it’s merely a “neck” injury. Giroux being treated by the same neurologist, Ted Carrick, who treated concussion sufferers Crosby, Jonathan Toews, and Guillaume Latendresse might just be a coincidence, but remember Giroux suffered a concussion last season.

Brisson insists this is just a precautionary measure sending him to Carrick and goes on to say, “There’s nothing serious here.”

There could really be a lot of nothing going on here or there’s a much bigger story waiting to come out of this.

      Yeah it wouldn’t surprise me if Fehr is behind doing things like this concussion specialist by working with players and their agents. Using Crosby’s agent to talk about going to play over seas. Anything Fehr can do to gain an edge at the CBA table he will.

        maybe that’s just a LITTLE over the top? i mean obviously we don’t know exactly what Fehr is doing…. but that guy can’t even manage the players’ mouths, let alone what aspects of players lives are posted on PHT.
