X-rays on the foot injury Briere suffered earlier this week came back negative, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.

After taking a shot off his foot in Monday's game against the Flames, Briere missed the final two contests of the Avs' road trip, instead opting to return to Denver early. It's not yet clear if he'll be available for Saturday's home game versus the Sabres.

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 found twine Friday, notching his seventh goal of the season in a 2-1 shootout win over the Oilers.

As predicted, the aging Briere's offense has continued to decline in 2014-15, as he's now up to just nine points in 31 contests. However, he skated with offensive weapons Matt Duchene and captain Gabriel Landeskog on the top line in this one, so as long as he's receiving this assignment, he's certainly worth a look in deeper formats, even if the struggles of Colorado's top forwards have been well documented.

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 will return to the Avs lineup on Thursday when Colorado plays the Rangers, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.

Briere has been a healthy scratch for the past six games after struggling to start the season. Briere was acquired in the offseason from Montreal to try and give the Avs some offensive production but he has failed to do so far. Following Colorado's 6-0 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday, this may be Avs' coach Patrick Roy trying to mix things up a bit but Briere should still be ignored in most leagues until he starts producing offensively.

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.
