The Philadelphia Flyers have brought back winger James van Riemsdyk, and no one is happier than Claude Giroux. The Flyers captain was on the phone all week helping push van Riemsdyk to return to Philadelphia, and he welcomed him with open arms on Sunday afternoon.
“Excited to have my favourite pigeon back. #timestwoplusone,” Giroux said on a twitter post.
Giroux calling van Riemsdyk a pigeon is nothing new. He was mic’d up doing the exact same thing during the season opener in 2013.
It’s good to see the boys back together again, and even better to see them on what should be a very competitive team this season.
Welcome back, JVR!
