PHILADELPHIA - Flyers' captain Claude Giroux and his wife, Ryanne, have welcomed their first child -- a son.
The Flyers confirmed the news with a playful video featuring Gritty. In the video, which congratulated the couple on their newest addition to Giroux family, Gritty is seen placing a rubber ducky, diapers, and other baby-related items at his locker.
The couple announced that they were expecting a child on Valentine's Day earlier this year.
Claude and Ryanne were married last summer in Allentown, New Jersey.
