Did Claude Giroux wipe his boogers on a linesman?

Claude Giroux is all the hockey world is talking about after he appeared to wipe his nose and then wipe his hand on an NHL official prior to a faceoff. It’s not clear what Giroux is actually doing, but it definitely looks like he’s ditching his boogers on the linesman.
