Danny Briere suffered a wrist injury on Friday while playing for Eisbaren Berlin, according to Eishockey.de (via CSNPhilly).

If all goes well in the CBA negotiations — and who knows if it will — the NHL season might start on Jan. 19. In other words, if the information about Briere is correct, then there will be little to no margin for error in his recovery if he is to be available for the Philadelphia Flyers’ theoretical season opener.

Briere has 10 goals and 34 points in 21 games this season in the German league. He recently signed a contract extension that will keep him with Berlin for the remainder of the season, unless the NHL returns.

He underperformed in the 2011-12 campaign with 16 goals and 49 points in 70 contests. However, he was a major contributor in the Philadelphia Flyers’ playoff run.

    This will somehow be Crosby’s fault, I just know it.

      Well, yeah. Any time something bad happens to the Flyers it’s Crosby’s fault. Duh!

      I’m a Pens fan, but yes, I was kidding.

        Yeah I know, I was just continuing the joke.

    Well Duh, it was a joke! Can tell you a crybaby Crosby fan – get your feelings hurt so easily. Grow up.

    Send Briere and Bryzgalov to Columbus for a bag of used pucks.
