Observations

May 2019 – The 2018 fifth round draft pick of the Minnesota Wild continued to improve in his draft+1 season. His offensive game took on more of a goal scoring role. He is a decent skater who plays a solid 200-foot game and engages in all three zones. The diminutive forward shows tenacity on the puck and against bigger competitors, masking his lack of size. His primary weapon is his high-end hockey IQ. He generally makes the smart play and works hard to make up for the few mental errors he commits. Giroux’s defensive positioning is good, he does a good job at supporting the defenceman in the slot and in the corners. Like most late round picks, he is a long-term prospect and likely projects as a bottom-six winger who has some goal scoring ability. The Sudbury, Ontario native will likely head back to Saginaw next season looking to show continued improvement and really dominate the junior hockey level before possibly heading to the Iowa Wild after next season.
