Philadelphia Flyers C Danny Briere returns to practice

VOORHEES, N.J. - Danny Briere practised with the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday, the first time the centre has worked out with teammates since having groin surgery three weeks ago.

"There's still lots of pain and a lot of discomfort, depending on what I do," Briere said. "But just from skating this past weekend (by himself) to today was way better. I was able to do a little bit more with the puck and shoot a little harder and skate a little harder."

Briere hopes to return by Feb. 24, for a game against Washington.

Briere also had surgery in late October to repair a torn abdominal muscle. He injured his groin against Tampa Bay on Dec. 2, his last game with the Flyers, and had surgery Jan. 22.

Briere has five goals and nine points in nine games this season. Last season, he had 31 goals and 41 assists.
