Right winger Art Giroux played briefly for three different NHL clubs in the 30s. Although he was a utility player in the big leagues, his offensive totals in the minors were impressive.

The Winnipeg native first made a name for himself in the Prairie League with the Saskatoon Shieks. He then moved on to the California League with the San Francisco Tigers and Los Angeles Richfields and led the circuit with 34 goals in 1929-30. The next season he began a five year stretch in the Can-Am League with the Providence Reds and the Boston Cubs. In 1932 and 1934 he was an integral part of the Reds' Can-Am championships.

Giroux played 40 games for the Montreal Canadiens in 1932-33 and scored five goals while playing on a line with Hago Harrington and Leo Gaudreault. He was returned to Providence and eventually played a handful of games for the Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings.

The clever winger was on hand in 1936-37 when the American Hockey League was born. He scored 21 goals for the Pittsburgh Hornets that years and remained in the league until he retired in 1945. Along the way Giroux was a key player when the Providence Reds won the Calder Cup in 1938 and 1940. He was also named to the league's second all-star team in 1940 after a strong two-way season for Providence.
