Claude Giguere, father of J-S Giguere, dies at 63. Update.

Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere’s father died yesterday in Montreal. Claude Giguere was 63.

Update: Jonas Hiller got the start against the New York Rangers on Tuesday night (it’s 1-1 at the second intermission; Hiller has 19 saves) with Jiggy backing up. Giguere is expected to miss one game later this week (at Edmonton) to attend the service. In that case, the Ducks would recall a goaltender to back up Jonas Hiller. David LeNeveu was recalled from Iowa two weeks ago when Giguere left the team briefly to visit his ailing father.
