NHL: All-Star MVP puts future on hold

Veteran forward Claude Giroux was named the NHL All-Star most valuable player before saying discussions about his future with the Philadelphia Flyers can wait for "another day".

Giroux has spent his entire 15 season NHL career with the Flyers who are 400/1 to win the Stanley Cup and said it was an honour to represent them and help the Metropolitan Division win the All-Star Weekend Final.

Giroux deal running out

The 34-year-old is in a final season of his contract with the Flyers, and his future remains uncertain after General Manager Chuck Fletcher said Giroux will not sign a new contract during the season.

That has resulted in speculation that he may choose to waive his no-move clause and end his time with the struggling Flyers.

Philadelphia are seventh in the Metropolitan Division (15-22-8) and in 42 games this season, centreman Giroux has 35 points (15 goals, 20 assists). He is second on the team for points and goals and leads the way for assists.

In the All-Star Final, his seventh appearance, Giroux scored twice in the Metropolitan's 5-3 victory over the Central Division.

Giroux has scored 893 points (288 goals, 605 assists) in 985 NHL regular season games and eight goals in the All-Star Game in any format.

He said to the media about his contract: "I'm not going to think about this right now. Just enjoy the weekend. There's a lot of things to figure out, but that's for another day."
