Briere Suspended Two Games

March 30, 2006

The National Hockey League announced today that center Daniel Briere has been suspended for two games as a result of a highsticking incident against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.

The incident occurred at 10:29 of the second period when Briere struck Boston defenseman Brian Leetch with a highstick. Leetch was taken to Boston's locker room and did not return. No penalty was assessed on the play.

Briere will miss tonight's game at New Jersey and April 1 at Toronto. He will be eligible to return April 3 in Toronto against the Maple Leafs.
