Part 1 of Claude Giroux’s GoPro shoot released


If last night's Flyers win over the Red Wings wasn't enough to put you into good spirits, watching this should put you over the top.

You may remember back in January when the weekend of the All-Star Game hit that Claude Giroux was part of a trailer for the NHL's GoPro series, titled NHL After Dark.

Part 1 of Giroux's episode was released on Wednesday and it is glorious.

Giroux displays the stick-handling talent that was featured in the trailer, maneuvering the puck in a Frogger-style game. Former NHLer Mike Johnson helped with the shoot and had to explain what Frogger was to Giroux — he cited being too young and also his French background as the reason he didn't know.

Giroux was also given free range of the center-ice circle in a passing display. 

You can watch the full three-minute video below.

The episode is the eighth in the series for the NHL and GoPro and will conclude in two weeks on March 30, when Part 2 of Giroux's episode is released.
