Claude Giroux reaching a milestone seems to be the norm these days.

The Flyers' captain is currently the longest-tenured athlete in Philadelphia and continues to climb the franchise's leaderboards for a number of different categories.

Last season, he became the sixth Flyer to ever score 100 points in a season. He added style points by ripping off a hat trick in Game 82 as the Flyers clinched a playoff berth at the Wells Fargo Center (see story).

This season, in Game 20 of the 2018-19 campaign, Giroux put another notch on his belt by scoring his 700th career point. Giroux on Saturday tallied a secondary assist on James van Riemsdyk's power-play goal during the second period, which you can watch in the video above.

The 30-year-old is one of only 21 active players to score 700 career points.

Giroux tacked on another helper, bringing him into a tie with Brian Propp for second on the Flyers' all-time assists list at 480. He's now 149 points from passing Propp for third on the Flyers' all-time points list. 

 

He's also 33 games from topping Propp's third-ranked Flyers mark of 790 games played.

Here's where Giroux stands among the franchise's elites:

Points
1. Bobby Clarke — 1210
2. Bill Barber — 883
3. Brian Propp — 849
4. Claude Giroux — 701

Assists
1. Bobby Clarke — 852 
2. Brian Propp — 480 
2. Claude Giroux — 480

Games played
1. Bobby Clarke — 1144
2. Bill Barber — 903
3. Brian Propp — 790
4. Claude Giroux — 758

Giroux is also 15 markers away from climbing into the top 10 of the Flyers' all-time goals list.

He's been on a tear since Feb. 8 of last season, scoring 68 points in 49 games, trailing only one player during that span: Connor McDavid at 71.
