Lightning Round: Daniel Briere’s son caught tossing wheelchair down stairs at party

You won’t guess who Boston lost to

On Saturday night, Mercyhurst University men’s hockey player Carson Briere, son of former NHLer and current Philadelphia Flyers GM Daniel Briere, was caught on a security camera with a friend tossing a wheelchair down a flight of stars at a party. Briere is in the white hat. The wheelchair was at the top of the stairs because its owner needed to be carried downstairs to the bathroom.

Mercyhurst released a statement calling the video disturbing and have both student conduct as well as police and safety investigating.

Briere came to Mercyhurst in 2021 from Arizona State where he and another teammate were kicked off the team for violating team rules. Briere called it at the time, “too much partying.” Personally, I’d like to see what too much partying looks like for a college hockey player.

Briere Making Most of 2nd Chance at Mercyhurst

Briere is ninth in team scoring this year which might, unfortunately, play a part in how the school and team handles this situation. We’ve seen with Mitchell Miller, Tony DeAngelo, and Logan Mailloux that points protects from punishment.

“The middle frame has been a bit of a dead zone for the Bolts over the last month or so, but goals in that period from Brandon Hagel, Alex Killorn, and Nikita Kucherov built a lead that they would not surrender.”

The Boston Bruins lost to Chicago, with Taylor Raddysh scoring a hat trick in the win. Arizona beat Calgary, Montreal beat Pittsburgh, and Vancouver beat Dallas in other big upsets.

The NHL also did a collaboration with Disney where they made animated highlights from the NYR vs WSH game. What do you think?

“Three Western Conference teams have already punched their postseason tickets: Toledo, Cincinnati, and Idaho. The Walleye have been on a major heater in recent weeks, riding a 16-game winning streak. The ECHL record is 23 by South Carolina set in 2015, if anyone was wondering. On their tail are the Cyclones, who are riding a 15-game point streak (13-0-1-1), and sit one point behind for first place in the division.”
