Briere_sonYeah, that's his kid

Chuck Gormley of the Courier Post takes us inside the home, the hearth, if you will, of Danny Briere and Claude Giroux:

On practice days, Briere and Giroux usually share a ride to the Skate Zone in Voorhees, grab lunch and are back in Haddonfield in time for one of them to pick up the three boys at Central School, where Caelan, in seventh grade, Carson, in sixth, and Cameron, in fourth, stay for homework club until 4 p.m.

"They'd rather have Claude pick them up," Briere says. "He's like a big brother to them and it's cool for their friends."


It seems the kids prefer to have Uncle 'Roo pick them up.

The most amazing part? All three of Briere's sons play hockey and he's the assistant coach on all of their teams- two of which are coached by Keith Primeau and Derian Hatcher, respectively.
