I was so impressed that Daniel Briere, NHL All-star, signed these back for me. Daniel is your prototypical, diminutive NHL player who has not a lot of size but a lot of heart and skill. Daniel was drafted in ’96 to the then Pheonix Coyotes where definitely be a top 10 player if the NHL were ever to do a redraft of that entry year.
Daniel started his NHL career, piling up 22 points in 64 games in his rookie year with the Yotes where he shared some time with the Springfield Falcons, the AHL team at the time. It wasn’t until the 2001/02 NHL season where Daniel would come back into the NHL to see some more significant time with the team and that is where he would flourish putting up 60 points in 78 regular season games. From then on, Daniel would play a remaining season with the Coyotes before being traded to Buffalo in exchange for Chris Gratton and a fourth round pick in 2004.
With Buffalo, he would rack up 230 points over five years with the team (one which included the lockout season). This was his most productive years of his life as he would not see point totals in which he earned in Buffalo.
Philadelphia, Montreal and Colorado were additional stops until he finally retired in 2015 at the age of 38.
