Flyers' Briere 'healing' from fractured wrist

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren told reporters Monday that forward Danny Briere has a hairline fracture in his left wrist and is "iffy" for the first two games of the season.

Holmgren said Briere had an MRI on Monday and is "healing." Briere had 34 points (10 goals) in 21 games for Berlin in the Deutsche Eishockey League during the lockout.

Briere could be a candidate to replace Jaromir Jagr on Philadelphia's top line this season, or he could help anchor the second unit. He had 16 goals and 49 points last season for the Flyers before adding 13 points in 11 playoff contests.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
