So as I learned from a story written by my good buddy Steve Whyno. Claude Giroux has a nickname compliments of Braydon Coburn; "Puck Wizard". Well the DGS SuperSpies did a little digging and they found out a list of OTHER nicknames Giroux has and how he got them. Because we believe in educating Flyerdom on the players nicknames, we're gonna share what we learned.
Nickname: Ginger Midget
Story Behind It: Claude's a Ginger kid...and he's short
Nickname: Dink the Clown
Story Behind It: Well; Claude shares a name with a midget wrestler from the 80s.
(Editor's Note: DGS is short too, he's probably shorter than Giroux.)
Nickname: The Deke-Master
Story Behind It: With moves like these, it's self explanatory
Story Behind it: Against the Capitals; back in November, Mr. Giroux scored a goal with well...part of his body.
Nickname: Claude Briere
Story Behind it: Lives with Danny, is Danny's kid's oldest brother. Yeah; he's a G like that.
So there you have it, Claude's nicknames.
