Flyers rookie camp officially gets underway Friday, but some of the players are already on the ice in Voorhees -- including Danny Briere.
Briere was amnestied by the Flyers along with Ilya Bryzgalov earlier this summer so that the Flyers could clear the remaining two years of his $6.5 million cap hit off their books.
The soon-to-be-36-year-old later came to an agreement on two-year, $8 million deal with the Canadiens so that the fans in Montreal could finally stop booing him. (Briere famously turned down the Habs back in 2007, opting to sign with the Flyers instead.)
He's still skating in Vorhees, but he's wearing different colors now:
