Briere (foot) will not play Wednesday against the Oilers.Briere originally sustained the injury in Monday's loss to the Flames. Although he was able to stay in that contest, look for the winger to be a game time call when the Avs take on the Canucks on Thursday.

Briere missed Tuesday's practice with a suspected foot injury, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.Briere took a hard shot to the foot in Monday's loss to the Flames, and while it didn't force him out of the game, he wasn't apparently still ailing afterwards. He should be viewed as questionable for Wednesday's tilt in Edmonton.

Briere picked up an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.Prior to Thursday, the 37-year-old hadn't scored a point since Jan. 8, a span of 18 games. Briere has been more of a lineup regular for the Avalanche since Nathan MacKinnon succumbed to a season-ending injury, but his fantasy intrigue isn't on the upswing because of it. Briere has produced only 12 points on the season and probably won't raise his production while he remains locked into a fourth-line role.

Briere will miss his third straight game Thursday against the Kings.With the Avalanche owning a two-game winning streak since Briere became a healthy scratch, coach Patrick Roy will stick the same lineup. The 37-year-old Briere is clearly in the twilight of his career at this point, as he's only produced eight goals and 11 points in 47 games this season.

Briere netted the Avalanche's only goal in their shootout victory over the Oilers on Friday.A recent addition to the Avs' top line, Briere took a feed from Matt Duchene to give the team a 1-0 lead in the first period. Briere's placement on a scoring line would seemingly make him a decent pickup in the short-term, but coach Patrick Roy's tendency to tinker heavily with his arrangements may not give the forward much time to remain there.

Briere found the net on his only shot on goal in Monday's loss to the Canadiens.Briere has now scored three goals in his last five games, earning him some increased ice time after he had been a healthy scratch for a decent stretch of time in November. With several Avs forwards since falling victim to injury, Briere should have some steady security in the team's lineup.

Briere has been a healthy scratch for the Avs in the past six games, the Denver Post reports.The Avs acquired Briere from the Canadiens this off-season, but he has contributed very little to the teams so far this season. With his play in decline, and his continued struggles to get into the lineup, Briere should be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Briere will open with Colorado's third line against the Wild on Thursday night.Briere had a season to forget last year in Montreal, but could be a sleeper to watch due to his new role in Colorado's offense. For now, we see Briere as a better real life player than fantasy. However, he could fall somewhere in the 30-40 point range if he remains healthy.

The Avalanche have acquired Briere from the Canadiens in exchange for PA Parenteau and a fifth-round draft pick, NHL.com reports.The 36-year-old Briere, who recorded 13 goals and 25 points in 69 games with the Habs this past season, gives the Avs an experienced option up front, though his fantasy value will hinge on where (and with who) Colorado uses him. He's in the second year of a two-year, $8 million pact that he inked with Montreal last year, while Parenteau has two years left on his deal.
