The Florida PanthersColorado Avalanche, and St. Louis Blues are among the teams showing interest in Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude GirouxTSN’s Pierre LeBrun reported on Thursday’s “Insider Trading.”

Giroux is in the final season of an eight-year contract with an $8.275-million cap hit before becoming an unrestricted free agent. His pact also contains a full no-movement clause, so he controls his own destiny.

The 34-year-old is having another stellar campaign. He’s tallied 17 goals and 23 assists in 53 games – both of which rank second on the Flyers. He’s adept at playing both center and wing, too, and has won 61.5% of his faceoffs this season.

The Flyers sit last in the Metropolitan Division and are widely expected to be sellers at the trade deadline.
