Well the Philadelphia Flyers now have seven players in Europe due to the lockout. Claude Giroux and teammate Daniel Briere are the next two Flyers heading to Germany. The news was broken via Twitter by Pierre LeBrun.
Briere and Giroux decided to work out a deal so that they would be able to play as teammates during the lockout by playing for Eisbaren Berlin, a team in Germany’s top league, Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL).
Eisbaren Berlin have won the DEL championship more times than any other team. They have recently captured titles in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012.
