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