SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League announced today that Oklahoma City Barons left wing Alexandre Giroux, who recorded his 600th career AHL point in a game against San Antonio last month, has been named the winner of December’s reGen™ Muscle Recovery Beverage/AHL Performance of the Month award.
In the Barons’ Dec. 18 contest vs. San Antonio at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, Giroux earned a second-period assist to become the 44th player in AHL history to reach 600 career points. The Quebec City native and two-time Calder Cup champion currently shows 325 goals and 289 assists for 614 points in 676 regular-season AHL games over 10 seasons.
In recognition of his reGen™/AHL Performance of the Month award, Giroux will be honored at an upcoming Barons home game.
Giroux, 29, won the AHL’s goal-scoring title and the Calder Cup each of the past two seasons with Hershey, including a career-best 103-point effort (50-53-103) for the Bears in 2009-10. A four-time AHL All-Star, Giroux leads all active players with his 325 career goals. Giroux, who will captain the Western Conference All-Stars in Hershey later this month, also ranks sixth on the AHL’s all-time postseason scoring list with 100 points (50-50-100) in 112 career Calder Cup Playoff games.
