At 30 years old last season, Claude Giroux scored 102 points in the best league on the planet.
Imagine a young Giroux playing junior hockey? He was a terror.
Giroux eclipsed the 100-point barrier in each of his three seasons with the QMJHL's Gatineau Olympiques from 2005-08.
Here were his stat lines:
• 2005-06 — 103 points (39 goals, 64 assists) in 69 games
• 2006-07 — 112 points (48 goals, 64 assists) in 63 games
• 2007-08 — 106 points (38 goals, 68 assists) in 55 games (added 51 points in 19 playoff games)

And forever, THE #28 for the Olympiques! Congrats on your number being retired @CGiroux28! #QMJHL50 #QMJHLPride pic.twitter.com/14w7gkpJTd
Giroux, who will eventually have his No. 28 retired by the Flyers, had his jersey raised to the rafters Wednesday night by the Olympiques.
Same No. 28, just a different sweater (which is awesome, by the way).
Here are some images from the night, courtesy of the great Flyers senior director of public relations Zack Hill. The first picture is Giroux with his mother Nicole and father Raymond.
