It might be time to hang up the skates after 18 years in the NHL for Daniel Briere.
The 37 year old forward told Le Presse in Quebec that his family will be a big part of the decision.
“The big deal is to think of my family, he explains. I just missed two seasons of their hockey, two years of school where I was not there to help them. At some point, you have to take a step back and analyze everything. I will not take the decision alone. I want to tell them about it, have their thinking, feeling.
I would play, I still love the game, I have a passion for hockey. But there is something else in life. I must think of three little men. I was a bit selfish the past two years to pursue my dream.”
Briere had 12 points (8 G, 4 A) in 57 games with the Avalanche during 2014-2015.
Danny B. will still be on the Flyers payroll till the end of the 2017 season after being bought out in the summer of 2013.
