Briere to miss 3-4 weeks with injury

Friday, 10.24.2008 / 7:25 PM / News
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren gave the following update on Flyers center Danny Briere prior to tonight's Flyers-Devils game at the Prudential Center:

"Danny has a slight tear in his reptus abdominis, which is a stomach muscle," said Holmgren. "He will have surgery at Hahnemann Hospital tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. He will be out of the lineup approximately 3-4 weeks."

"I am surprised by the turn of events that happened today," said Briere. "I hate missing time, but by being aggressive, I will be back soon."

Briere currently leads the Flyers in scoring with three goals and four assists in six games.

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
