17th year left wing Alexandre Giroux(22) seems to be taking a bit of an easier route signing with Brûleurs de loups of Ligue Magnus for what will likely be one of the last years for the top scoring forward.
He has scored an eye-popping 704 (368-336) points in 771 AHL games, 226 points as a junior in the QMJHL through 202 games, 119 points in 144 NLA games, where he’s spent three years with HC Ambri-Piotti sandwiched between a pair of KHL seasons: 44 points in 105 games.
Scoring has always been in the deep draft pick’s blood and he should basically win the scoring title hands down in France next season.
We still remember his days with Hartford Wolf Pack like it was yesterday.
More on this Player...
He has 364 goals and 336 assists in 764 regular season games played, which is a pretty incredible feat.
He’s not exactly having a career year for scoring this season with 24 goals and 26 assists in 58 games; yet he’s still in the top 20 for points in the league.
In the last three seasons, he’s either won top scorer or come in second.
He’s skated in 48 NHL games scoring 6 goals and 6 assists.
At 6’3″ 202 lbs. he’s a pretty big power forward and has the ability to get in tight and score some goals but has never quite been given the chance.
He’s only signed with Columbus Blue Jackets for a year, but we hope they re-up with him for another season.
