It appears the 38-year-old defenseman is having a difficult time hanging up the skates. Chris Pronger still can't run or skate hard, is bothered by bright light and has lost some of his peripheral vision. Though he is still clinging on to the hope of a return, it is highly unlikely.

The Flyers coaching staff acknowledged over the summer that Chris Pronger is still experiencing headaches stemming from a concussion that has kept him off the ice since November of 2011. There is a strong chance Pronger will never dress in orange and black again, but fantasy owners should keep an eye on his health. When Prongers on the ice, he is an assist machine, but there arent many points to be scored from the press box. Pronger was playing nearly at a point-per-game last season before the injury in November. (Updated 8/14/12)
