While there have been conflicting reports about whether Ilya Bryzgalov left his team in Russia because he was hurt or just goofy, there is one injury to a Flyers player that we know about– Danny Briere hurt his wrist sometime in late December playing for the Berlin Ice Bears (let this be the last time I write the name of that fucking team).

From some German website I never heard of. Translated, so you can barely understand it:

DEL-record champions Eisbären Berlin will miss in the coming weeks on superstar Daniel Brière. The Canadian striker, who had only this week extended his contract until the end of the NHL lockout, retreated in a 3-1 win against the Polar Bears on Friday after a Ingolstadt unpunished Slashing to an overextension of the wrist and a bone bruise. The striker is not the Hauptstädtern two to three weeks are available. 

The 35-year-old Briere became the second prominent failure at the defending champion, after the beginning of November the NHL teammate Claude Giroux suffered a cervical spine injury and has to leave Berlin for that reason and the DEL again. Scorer with 34 points in just 21 matches Brière is currently Berlin's most successful scorer and alone in its recent seven missions had eleven points (five goals, six assists) collected.


That’s 34 points in 21 games… looks like Danny B is in postseason form. We’ll keep an eye on whether that wrist keeps him out WHEN THE FLYERS BEGIN THEIR SEASON NEXT WEEK(!!!).
