Carson Briere apologizes for pushing wheelchair down stairs

The son of Philadelphia Flyers interim general manager Danny Briere has apologized after a video posted on social media showed him pushing an empty wheelchair down a flight of stairs.

Mercyhurst University hockey player Carson Briere apologized in a statement released by the NHL’s Flyers on Wednesday.

“I am deeply sorry for my behavior on Saturday,” he said. “There is no excuse for my actions and I will do everything I can to make up for this serious lapse in judgment.”

Danny Brier, who was replaced by the Flyers last week when Chuck Fletcher was fired, said he was shocked to see his son’s actions on video.

“They are inexcusable and completely at odds with our family values ​​of treating people with respect,” he said. “Carson is very sorry and accepts full responsibility for his behavior.”

A spokeswoman for the nearly 3,000-student Mercyhurst School in Erie, Pennsylvania, said a student code of conduct is being developed.

“The actions shown in the video weigh heavily on our hearts and do not accept our compassionate belief in the inherent dignity of every human being,” the spokesperson said in a statement, adding that the school’s “tradition also reminds us that students and all people who are poor; elections deserve opportunities to learn, change behavior, and atone for harmful actions.”

Carson Briere was previously dismissed from Arizona State hockey in 2019 for what the school called a violation of team rules. He is in his third season at Division I Mercyhurst.
