Office space: Former Flyer Briere adjusting to life after hockey (VIDEO)
Try as he might, Daniel Briere is having a tough time getting acclimated to life away from the hockey rink.
Sure, the bumps and bruises are gone, but Briere still has a few tendencies that come to the forefront in his everyday life.
Need proof? Well, here’s a video posted by the Philadelphia Flyers’ website – complete with the 38-year-old Briere getting a bit physical with a copy machine.
Briere, who played six of his 17 NHL seasons with Philadelphia, was honored by the Flyers prior to their 4-3 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.

The Quebec native scored 36 goals and set up 32 others during 62 career playoff contests with the club, and recorded a league-leading and franchise-best 30 points (12 tallies, 18 assists) in 23 games to help Philadelphia reach the Stanley Cup final in 2010.
