Philadelphia Flyers centre Claude Giroux is leaving his Eisbaren Berlin club in the German league to seek medical attention for a neck injury, his agent Pat Brisson told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on ESPN.com Tuesday.

"We want to make sure we get the right diagnosis with the neck injury, it's a precaution," Brisson said. "We believe it's a minor injury. He felt better yesterday. But we just don't want to take any chances."

Giroux, who suffered the injury in a game last Friday and underwent concussion tests in Germany over the weekend, said via text message that he would be "fine."

Brisson added that Giroux will visit with Dr. Ted Carrick in Atlanta next week. He's the same doctor that has worked with Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews.

Giroux was third in NHL scoring last season with 28 goals and 93 points.
