When Jaromir Jagr first arrived in Philadelphia, a number of the Flyers were asked how they felt about the prospect of playing alongside a hockey icon.

None was bashful about his feelings. All were excited to share a locker room with him.

Jagr, as anyone remotely familiar with hockey knows, is one of the best to ever play the game. He's the childhood idol of many – including Flyers winger Jakub Voracek.

But, as it turns out, there's someone No. 68 himself holds in high regard.

And that's Claude Giroux.
