The Philadelphia Flyers' parent company, Comcast Spectacor, have bought the ECHL Alaska Aces and plan to hand day-to-day operations of the franchise to Daniel Briere.
Briere has been working with the business side of the Flyers for two years after announcing his the end of his playing career in 2015. Comcast Spectacor is also moving the Aces to Portland, Maine, starting with the 2018-19 campaign. This ECHL franchise won't be actually affiliated with the Flyers in terms of prospects though because Philadelphia already has an affiliation agreement with the ECHL Reading Royals.

Daniel Briere is still not sure if he'll retire this summer.

"I’ll have to start thinking about it more and more in the next couple of weeks," Briere said. He's an unrestricted free agent after scoring eight goals and 12 points in 57 games with the Colorado Avalanche last season. He's a veteran of 973 contests and has scored 307 goals and 696 points.

Daniel Briere is considering hanging up the skates at 37 years old.

"At some point, you have to take a step back and analyze everything. I will not take the decision alone," Briere said in reference to his three sons. "I just missed two seasons of their hockey, two years of school where I was not there to help them." Briere, a veteran of 973 career games with Phoenix (now Arizona), Buffalo, Philadelphia, Montreal, and most recently Colorado, has been a reliable scoring threat from October to June throughout his career. Briere has amassed 307 goals and 696 points during the regular season, but it's his 53 goals and 116 points over 124 career postseason games that nets the Gatineau, Quebec native his notoriety. If he does come back, it'll likely have to be for a lot less than his $4M salary and cap hit he enjoyed the last two seasons once free agency begins on July 1st. Briere will be 38 in October.
