Welcome to this edition of Into the Sin Bin!

Daniel Briere played parts of 17 National Hockey League seasons, more than 900 games, with five different franchises. In his career, he scored 696 points (307G, 389A), survived two lockouts and played with and against the game’s top players.

He retired after the 2014-15 season and since then has been back with the Philadelphia Flyers organization, learning the ropes on how to run a franchise. In June 2017, he was tabbed to lead the day-to-day operations of the new Portland franchise.

On this edition of Into the Sin Bin, Matthew Harding talks with Briere about his playing days, if the lockouts were good for the sport of hockey, the toughest decision he ever made, former Arizona Coyotes captain Shane Doan and more about the work going into put hockey back on the ice at Cross Insurance Arena in October 2018.
