The last time Danny Briere played in an all-star, in 2007 in Dallas, he had a goal and four assists and he won a Dodge Nitro SUV as the game’s MVP.
He gave the car to his sister. She still has it.
It was the only five-point game of his career.
About Allen Panzeri
After three years of teaching English at the University of British Columbia, Allen Panzeri began his career in journalism in 1979 at the Medicine Hat News, where he covered Kelly Hrudey and the Tigers while learning about block heaters, rodeo, and curling. In 1981, he moved north to the Edmonton Journal, where he covered boxing, the Edmonton Drillers of the North American Soccer League, and the University of Alberta Golden Bears and Pandas for four years, before taking a 10-year hiatus from sports to write editorials, cover primary, secondary, and university education, and watch the beginnings of the Ralph Klein era at the provincial legislature. Traded to the Citizen in 1995, he accepted an offer to return to sports and cover the Ottawa Lynx, lucking into a front-row seat for their 1995 International League championship, and since then has covered the Senators and typed out the occasional article on golf.
