Avs' Briere To Make Surprise Return Thursday

News: Daniel Briere (foot) will play Thursday against the Jets, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The Avalanche appeared to be ruling Daniel Briere out for the remainder of the season due to his slow progress in his recovery from a foot injury, but the veteran forward was able to get in a strong skate Thursday morning and talked his way into the lineup thereafter. While Briere's return won't cause many ripples in the fantasy realm due to his poor numbers this season (eight goals, 12 points in 55 games), it's a welcome development for the Avalanche who only have 11 other healthy forward on the roster after Dennis Everberg suffered a season-ending shoulder injury earlier this week. The Avs' final two regular-season games could represent the last of Briere's career, as the 37-year-old will be a free agent this summer and isn't expected to command much interest.

Avs' Briere Unlikely To Return This Season

News: Daniel Briere (foot) appears unlikely to return over the Avs' final three games of the season, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Daniel Briere hurt his foot while blocking a shot in a March 23 game and hasn't been skating with the team. With the season drawing to a close Saturday, it looks like Briere will run out of time to demonstrate to the coaching staff that he's fully healthy, potentially ending his career on a somber note. Briere will turn 38 in October, and after an unproductive season in which he tallied only 12 points in 55 games, the winger may elect to hang up his skates for good.

Avs' Briere Out Next Three Games

News: Daniel Briere (foot) will not join the Avalanche for their three-game California trip that begins Wednesday in San Jose.
Analysis: Daniel Briere has already missed the Avs' last four contests after taking a shot off his foot in a March 23 tilt against the Flames. His activity has been limited since then, and the team apparently wasn't optimistic of his chances at being back to full health by the time the road trip concludes. The Avalanche will only have three games remaining on its regular-season schedule after the road trip, and with Briere not necessarily a lineup regular before the injury, it wouldn't be surprised if he was shut down for good.

X-Rays Negative For Avs' Briere (Foot)

News: X-rays on the foot injury Daniel Briere suffered earlier this week came back negative, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: After taking a shot off his foot in Monday's game against the Flames, Daniel Briere missed the final two contests of the Avs' road trip, instead opting to return to Denver early. It's not yet clear if he'll be available for Saturday's home game versus the Sabres.

Avs' Briere (Foot) Out Wednesday

News: Daniel Briere (foot) will not play Wednesday against the Oilers.
Analysis: Daniel Briere originally sustained the injury in Monday's loss to the Flames. Although he was able to stay in that contest, look for the winger to be a game time call when the Avs take on the Canucks on Thursday.

Avs' Briere Hurting After Monday's Game

News: Daniel Briere missed Tuesday's practice with a suspected foot injury, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Daniel Briere took a hard shot to the foot in Monday's loss to the Flames, and while it didn't force him out of the game, he wasn't apparently still ailing afterwards. He should be viewed as questionable for Wednesday's tilt in Edmonton.

Avs' Briere Registers Assist In Win

News: Daniel Briere picked up an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: Prior to Thursday, the 37-year-old hadn't scored a point since Jan. 8, a span of 18 games. Daniel Briere has been more of a lineup regular for the Avalanche since Nathan MacKinnon succumbed to a season-ending injury, but his fantasy intrigue isn't on the upswing because of it. Briere has produced only 12 points on the season and probably won't raise his production while he remains locked into a fourth-line role.

Daniel Briere, C, COL Avs' Briere To Sit Out Third Straight

Daniel Briere

Avs' Briere To Sit Out Third Straight

News: Daniel Briere will miss his third straight game Thursday against the Kings.
Analysis: With the Avalanche owning a two-game winning streak since Daniel Briere became a healthy scratch, coach Patrick Roy will stick the same lineup. The 37-year-old Briere is clearly in the twilight of his career at this point, as he's only produced eight goals and 11 points in 47 games this season.

Avs' Briere Tallies Seventh Goal Of Season

News: Daniel Briere found twine Friday, notching his seventh goal of the season in a 2-1 shootout win over the Oilers.
Analysis: As predicted, the aging Daniel Briere's offense has continued to decline in 2014-15, as he's now up to just nine points in 31 contests. However, he skated with offensive weapons Matt Duchene and captain Gabriel Landeskog on the top line in this one, so as long as he's receiving this assignment, he's certainly worth a look in deeper formats, even if the struggles of Colorado's top forwards have been well-documented.

Avs' Briere Nabs Lone Goal In Shootout Win

News: Daniel Briere netted the Avalanche's only goal in their shootout victory over the Oilers on Friday.
Analysis: A recent addition to the Avs' top line, Daniel Briere took a feed from Matt Duchene to give the team a 1-0 lead in the first period. Briere's placement on a scoring line would seemingly make him a decent pickup in the short-term, but coach Patrick Roy's tendency to tinker heavily with his arrangements may not give the forward much time to remain there.

Avs' Briere Registers Goal In Win

News: Daniel Briere found the net on his only shot on goal in Monday's loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: Daniel Briere has now scored three goals in his last five games, earning him some increased ice time after he had been a healthy scratch for a decent stretch of time in November. With several Avs forwards since falling victim to injury, Briere should have some steady security in the team's lineup.

Avs' Briere Will Return To Lineup On Thursday

News: Daniel Briere will return to the Avs lineup on Thursday when Colorado plays the Rangers, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Daniel Briere has been a healthy scratch for the past six games after struggling to start the season. Following Colorado's 6-0 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday, it may just be the case where Avs coach Patrick Roy is attempting to mix things up a bit by bringing Briere back into the lineup, but the forward should can probably be ignored in most formats until he starts producing offensively.

Avs' Briere Continues To Be A Healthy Scratch

News: Daniel Briere has been a healthy scratch for the Avs in the past six games, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The Avs acquired Daniel Briere from the Canadiens this off-season, but he has contributed very little to the teams so far this season. With his play in decline, and his continued struggles to get into the lineup, Briere should be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Avs' Briere Healthy Scratched Thursday

News: Daniel Briere will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Islanders, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The 37-year-old Daniel Briere will be replaced in the lineup by Dennis Everberg, who was recalled from AHL Lake Erie on Wednesday. It's unclear whether the demotion to the press box will be a permanent one for Briere, as it will likely depend on how well the rookie Everberg meshes Thursday with John Mitchell and Alex Tanguay on the third line. Briere has two goals and three points over 10 games with the Avs on the season.

Avs' Briere Scores Buzzer-Beater In Win

News: Daniel Briere scored with 0.4 seconds remaining in Monday's game against the Bruins to break a 1-1 tie and give the Avalanche their first win of the season.
Analysis: A clutch performance from Daniel Briere, whose tiebreaking tally was the 300th goal of his career. He skated on the team's second line against the Bruins, lining up alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Alex Tanguay. Briere, who put up 25 points in 69 games with Montreal last season, could improve upon that in Colorado, considering the team's high offensive capabilities.

Avs' Briere Will Open Season With Third Line

News: Daniel Briere will open with Colorado's third line against the Wild on Thursday night.
Analysis: Daniel Briere had a season to forget last year in Montreal, but could be a sleeper to watch due to his new role in Colorado's offense. For now, we see Briere as a better real life player than fantasy. However, he could fall somewhere in the 30-40 point range if he remains healthy.

Briere Traded To Avs

News: The Avalanche have acquired Daniel Briere from the Canadiens in exchange for P.A. Parenteau and a fifth-round draft pick, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The 36-year-old Daniel Briere, who recorded 13 goals and 25 points in 69 games with the Habs this past season, gives the Avs an experienced option up front, though his fantasy value will hinge on where (and with who) Colorado uses him. He's in the second year of a two-year, $8 million pact that he inked with Montreal last year, while Parenteau has two years left on his deal.

Habs' Briere Adds Goal, Assist In Win

News: Daniel Briere collected a goal and an assist in Wednesday's Game 7 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Daniel Briere now has two goals and four assists in 10 games this postseason, and also has a plus-3 rating.

Habs' Briere Could Return To Lineup

News: Daniel Briere, who was scratched by the Habs on Saturday night, is a candidate to suit up for Monday's Game 6 against the Bruins, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Daniel Briere, who has recorded four points in eight playoff games to date, is a candidate to return to the Habs' lineup Monday, with the team having dropped two straight games to the Bruins and quite possibly looking for a spark up front in Game 6.

News: Daniel Briere was scratched for Game 5 on Saturday.
Analysis: Coach Michel Therrien went with Brandon Prust instead.

Habs' Briere Assists On Winner

News: Daniel Briere took four shots on goal and assisted on Dale Weise's game-winning goal in overtime Wednesday against Tampa Bay in the first game of their opening-round playoff series.
Analysis: The Canadiens' fourth line was humming in overtime, with Daniel Briere missing on a few scoring chances before his work behind the net helped Weise convert with just under two minutes remaining in OT. It's playoff time and Briere is Montreal's most seasoned player in terms of postseason experience. His assist gives him 110 points in 109 playoff games.

Habs' Briere Practices On Fourth Line

News: Daniel Briere centered the fourth line during Tuesday's practice before the Canadiens traveled to Tampa for Wednesday night's playoff game against the Lightning, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Analysis: Daniel Briere, who registered just 25 points in 69 games, was a disappointing free-agent signing this season but enters the postseason as Montreal's leader in playoff experience. All will be forgiven if he produces in April and May. In 108 playoff games, Briere has 109 points, including 50 goals.

Canadiens' Briere Scores On Power Play

News: Daniel Briere scored a power-play goal and won nine of 11 faceoffs in Tuesday night's 2-0 win over Buffalo. He has points in two straight games.
Analysis: Daniel Briere's been a disappointing free-agent signing, but he looks to have found a temporary home, centering the third line between Rene Bourque and Brian Gionta. His improved play put him on the second wave of the power play Tuesday.

Habs' Briere Centers Third Line

News: Daniel Briere was moved to center on the third line, skating with Rene Bourque and Brian Gionta in Saturday night's win over Toronto.
Analysis: Daniel Briere didn't pick up a point, but the line was responsible for two goals and should remain intact Monday against Boston.

Habs’ Briere Pots Two In Win

News: Daniel Briere scored two goals, added an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 6-5 shootout victory in Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Not too shabby for a fourth-liner who saw only 9:06 of ice time. In fact, Daniel Briere spent most of his time alongside the enforcer duo of Travis Moen and the mustachioed George Parros, adding to the unlikelihood of this mini offensive outburst. At 36 years old, the former 95-point scorer is a shade of his former self, but somehow has still managed to disappoint fantasy owners who tempered expectations after he was bought out by the Flyers last summer. Thursday's performance brings Briere's season point totals to 11 goals and 10 assists; maybe, just maybe, a combination of pride and recent trade rumors will help motivate him to salvage his season. More importantly, if the Quebec-native sees an uptick in ice time and linemate quality, he could be a sneaky pickup down the stretch. Add him to your watchlist.
