flyers letter

good guy claude giroux

RedditMy father passed away on the 12th. This surprised us in the mail today. Story: My dad was one of the biggest Flyers fans and would have absolutely loved this. He wasn’t even part of the organization and we did’t have season tickets. Somebody must have called and told them about him because we were all amazed to see this arrive today. We had no idea. And I know he didn’t write the letter but for Giroux to sign it means so much to me. I can’t explain just how much hockey meant to him and our relationship. I know the Flyers get a bad rap and we love to fight with our rivals but I figured everyone and anyone who’s a hockey fan could appreciate this.

“Oh behalf of the entire Philadelphia Flyers organization, I would like to thank Patrick (BLANK) for his years of support and dedication to our hockey team. Patrick’s constant support and unfailing loyalty is a true testament to the bond between our team and our fans and exemplifies why we have the best fans in the National Hockey League. Our thoughts are with the (BLANK) family during this difficult time and we would like to express our sincere condolences to you and your family.

Sincerely,

Claude Giroux
Captain, Philadelphia Flyers”

Good guy Claude Giroux. The man wasn’t even a season ticket holder. Class move by the Flyers front office.
