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

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
