Danny Briere, the undersized center who went on to become an NHL All-Star and keyed the Philadelphia Flyers’ run to the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, has retired. Briere ended a 17-year career on Monday that saw him play for the Phoenix Coyotes, Buffalo Sabres, Flyers, Montreal Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche. Briere spent the bulk of his career with the Sabres and Flyers and earned All-Star nods playing for both franchises.
