Claude Giroux is a a six-time NHL All-Star with a serious love for cheese.

The long-time Philadelphia Flyers captain likes to down a grilled cheese sandwich before every game.

The habit formed when Giroux was growing up in Hearst, Ontario, where his mother would make him grilled cheeses prior to youth hockey games.

He typically eats a lunch of pasta and chicken earlier in the day before downing a grilled cheese closer to puck drop.

"It's just white bread, sliced cheese and a little bit of ketchup on the side," Giroux told NHL.com of his standard prep.
