Claude Giroux, Shayne Gostisbehere each to miss 10-12 weeks

The Philadelphia Flyers said Saturday that center Claude Giroux and defenseman Shayne Gostisbeherewill be out up to three months due to surgery.

Giroux and Gostisbehere each will have procedures done Tuesday on their right hips as well as surgery to repair bilateral lower abdominal tears.

"We expect both players to be able to return to full activity in 10-12 weeks," general manager Ron Hextall said.

Giroux, a three-time All-Star, had 22 goals and 45 assists this season for the Flyers, whose season ended last month with an Eastern Conference first-round series loss to the Washington Capitals.

Gostisbehere, in his first full season, had 17 goals and 29 assists.
