Today we are taking a look at Penguins Player that may be more Legend to some than man.
Take a couple of minutes and get to know the man behind the number.
Before his untimely death, Michel Briere was well on his way to becoming the “Pride” of Pittsburgh. He was in the midst of setting the league on fire in his rookie campaign posting 12 goals, 32 assists in 76 games (He would be named the Penguins Rookie of the Year that season) drawing comparisons to a couple of other hot shots named Esposito and Hull.
Briere appeared ready to accept the role of “Franchise” Player, a move that appeared to be welcomed by the organization and player alike.
