Flyers center Danny Briere has a hairline fracture of his left wrist, GM Paul Holmgren said on Monday.

Holmgren said he was encouraged by Briere's MRI Monday and hinted that Briere could be skating shortly. The GM said Briere was "iffy" for the first two games of the season _ Saturday against Pittsburgh and Sunday in Buffalo.
