Flyers' Pronger Hired By NHL

News: Chris Pronger (concussion) has accepted a position to work in the NHL's Department of Player Safety, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Chris Pronger hasn't played in a game since Nov. 19, 2011 and has no plans to return to professional hockey due to his recurring concussion symptoms, but a job with the NHL would seem to be an obvious conflict of interest while he continues to receive paychecks from the Flyers. The 39-year-old remains on the Flyers' payroll until the end of the end of the 2016-17 season, after signing a seven-year, $35 million deal with the club in 2009. He was placed on the team's long-term injured reserve list following training camp.

Flyers' Pronger Still Has Concussion Symptoms

News: Chris Pronger still suffers from concussion symptoms some two-and-a-half years after suffering his injury, reports TSN.ca. "I have them from time to time," Pronger said. "But I'm doing pretty well. For the most part, I'm pleased with the progress. Every once in a while you take a step backwards, but things have been progressing."
Analysis: Chris Pronger last played Nov. 19, 2011, just a few weeks after he suffered the injury where he took a stick to the eye. He becomes eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2015 and will almost assuredly be a lock for the Hall, whether in his first year of eligibility or soon after.

Flyers' Pronger Headed To Long-Term IR

News: Chris Pronger (concussion) will begin the season on long-term injured reserve.
Analysis: There is no timetable for his return, but Chris Pronger continues to avoid retirement with the hope of playing again down the line. In the meantime, he's expected to work as an additional scout within the organization, but it would be a surprise if he manages to get back on the ice again as a player.

Flyers' Pronger Not Ready To Retire

News: Chris Pronger has stated that he is not ready to officially retire as he recovers from post-concussion symptoms, this according to Rob Maaddi of The Associated Press.
Analysis: 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.

Flyers' Pronger Won't Be Cleared During Physical

News: Chris Pronger (concussion) will not be cleared upon arrival in Philadelphia for his upcoming physical, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Considering the severity of his injury and the lingering nature of the symptoms, it is hardly a guarantee that Chris Pronger will be cleared to lace up his skates for game action again at any point down the road.

Flyers' Pronger (Concussion) Won't Be On Ice, But Will Attend Camp

News: Chris Pronger (concussion) will attend the Flyers' upcoming training camp, but won't be on the ice, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Chris Pronger has been out of action since November of 2011, and he still hasn't been medically cleared to return. At this point, there's really no telling if he'll see the ice this season, or ever again for that matter.

Flyers' Pronger (Concussion) Still Experiecing Symptoms

News: Chris Pronger is still experiencing post-concussion symptoms, CSN Philly reports.
Analysis: General manager Paul Holmgren said Chris Pronger's status remains "status quo," so there has been little progress other than the fact that there is more of a gap between when Pronger is experiecing headaches. His career appears to be in serious jeopardy, as hasn't played a game since Nov. 19, 2011.

Flyers' Pronger (Concussion) Showing Improvement, Return Not Imminent

News: Chris Pronger (concussion) is showing signs of improvement but is not ready to skate yet, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Chris Pronger's career remains in serious jeopardy after missing most of last season with post-concussion syndrome, but it's at least encouraging to see that his condition is improving. "He's doing better, but not to the point where he can think about playing," Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said. Holmgren said it was too soon to consider if Pronger could begin skating anytime soon. Pronger will be 38 in October, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him ride off into the sunset with what is almost certainly a Hall of Fame career.

Pronger scheduled for additional tests

News: Chris Pronger (headaches) is scheduled to have some testing done at the Flyers training facility next week according to NHL.com.
Analysis: Chris Pronger continues to suffer from headaches stemming from post-concussion syndrome and will not be taking the ice as part of this testing. The 37-year-old defenseman is one that would benefit from the looming lockout as it appears he still needs time to recover.

Flyers' GM Says Pronger Not Retiring

News: Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren has strongly refuted rumors that Chris Pronger (concussion) is retiring and moving to St. Louis with his family, according to Sportsnet.ca.
Analysis: Although Chris Pronger is still experiencing headaches - certainly not a great sign - Holmgren says the player is hoping to recover and return to the ice next season. We'll know more once Pronger finally starts feeling up to par following a season where he was only able to play 13 games.

Flyers Still Hopeful Pronger (Concussion) Can Return

News: Philadelphia general manager Paul Holmgren said Thursday he still believes Chris Pronger (concussion) will play next year, Philly.com reports.
Analysis: Chris Pronger was ruled out for the season in December after his severe post-concussion symptoms would not dissipate. There's been no word on if he's been able to do any type of physical activity beyond the normal day-to-day. This will play out over the summer, but with the scrutiny players with concussions have begun to come under, it's a tenuous situation at best.

Flyers' Pronger (Concussion) Watches Game From Owner's Box

News: Chris Pronger (concussion symptoms) attended Saturday's game as a guest of the team's owner, according to CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. It was his first public appearance since suffering his injury.
Analysis: He sat in the owner's box and waved to the crowd when they gave him a standing ovation after his name was announced. It's a good sign to see him in an environment with bright lights and loud noises. That may sound trite but those things trigger concussion symptoms.

Flyers' Pronger Out For Season

News: Chris Pronger is suffering from severe post-concussion symptoms and is out for the season, including the playoffs, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Ouch, this is a huge bombshell for the Flyers and, frankly, for the league. Between Chris Pronger, Sidney Crosby and Claude Giroux, concussions have become a high-profile problem for the league.

Flyers' Pronger Out Indefintely

News: Chris Pronger (knee, concussion symptoms) will be out indefinitely, the team's official Twitter page reports.
Analysis: Flyers GM Paul Holmgren made the announcement Friday. It was just a few weeks ago that Holmgren was optimistic about Chris Pronger's return before the end of the calendar year. It's clear now that Pronger will miss significant time and he's arguably cut bait.

Flyers' Pronger (Knee) Still Battling Virus

News: Chris Pronger, who recently underwent knee surgery, continues to battle a virus that initially kept him off the ice, Philly.com reports.
Analysis: Chris Pronger said if it weren't for the knee injury, he may have been able to play Friday, but he's still suffering affects from the illness. He's expected to begin rehabbing his knee Friday. As long as the virus doesn't prove to be something more serious, which there are no indications that's the case, Pronger remains on track to return on his four-week timetable.

Flyers GM Believes Pronger (Knee) Will Return Soon

News: Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren believes Chris Pronger will return "within four weeks, hopefully sooner than that," according to Sam Carchidi of Philly.com.
Analysis: Holmgren is taking the optimistic approach to Chris Pronger's recovery, but given the veteran's trouble with injuries this season, an aggressive timetable would seem to be difficult to project.

Flyers' Pronger Will Have Knee Surgery, Out A Month

News: Chris Pronger will have surgery on his left knee Tuesday and is expected to miss four weeks, the team's official Twitter page reports.
Analysis: Chris Pronger was reportedly battling an illness all of last week so this news of knee surgery comes as a bit of a surprise. The 37-year-old defenseman has recorded 12 points (1G, 11A) in just 13 games this season after recording 25 points in 50 games last year. While he's expected back in a month, it seems unreasonable to expect Pronger to even approach the 55 points he posted in 2009-10.

Flyers' Pronger Out Friday

News: Chris Pronger (illness) will not play in Friday's game against the Canadiens, Renaud Lavoie of RDS reports.
Analysis: Chris Pronger will miss his third straight game Friday. The Flyers play again Saturday afternoon, so without any practice time in between games, consider Pronger questionable at best. Expect an update if Pronger's status changes before the first puck drops Saturday.

Pronger (Ilness) Out For Flyers On Wednesday

News: Chris Pronger will not play Wednesday due to a virus, Philly.com reports.
Analysis: The fact that it's illness keeping Chris Pronger off the ice may be good news considering the eye injury he suffered earlier this year. There's no timetable from the Flyers on when Pronger may return.

Flyers' Pronger (Undisclosed) Will Not Play Monday

News: Chris Pronger (undisclosed) will not dress Monday night as the Flyers take on Carolina, Philadelphia Daily Sports reports.
Analysis: While the details of the injury have not been disclosed, there is a good chance that Chris Pronger's eye is keeping off the ice again. There have been no details or time tables released on the injury. Pronger's lack of starts has been disappointing, but he's made the most of his limited ice time, notching 12 points in 13 contests.

Pronger Ends Drought In Flyers' Win

News: Chris Pronger grabbed three assists in Monday's topping of Carolina, his first points since returning from his eye injury.
Analysis: Chris Pronger is an integral part of Philadelphia's success and contributed offensively as well in his usual ways Monday. Look for Pronger to factor into more of the team's scoring and log a ton of minutes per night.

Pronger (Eye) Returns To Philly Lineup

News: Chris Pronger (eye) returned to the Flyers' lineup Wednesday, but was not happy with his role in the Flyers' slow-down tactics against Tampa, Philly.com reports.
Analysis: "That's not hockey in my book," Chris Pronger said. "Would you pay money to watch that? That was a [national] TV game, too. Look at the [offensive] players they've got there. Way to showcase the product." Pronger may not have to worry about that style reappearing much more often as the Flyers lost 2-1 on the night. The veteran defenseman was on the ice for 25 minutes Wednesday and looks to be near 100-percent healthy.

Flyers' Pronger To Return Wednesday

News: Chris Pronger (eye) will be activated from injured reserve and play in Wednesday's game against the Lightning, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Chris Pronger has not played since taking a stick to the eye Oct. 24, but after skating the last couple days, he will return to the ice Wednesday night. Pronger has scored seven points (1G, 6A) in the eight games he has appeared in this season, so he is worth putting in the lineup in most formats.

Flyers' Pronger Skates For Second Straight Day

News: Chris Pronger (eye) skated Tuesday for the second straight day, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: Chris Pronger's participation doesn't make him a lock to return for Wednesday's game, but it does increase his chances. Expect another update on Pronger's status before the puck drops Wednesday.

Flyers' Pronger Day-to-Day

News: Chris Pronger (eye) will continue to be evaluated on a day-to-day basis, the Flyers' official site reports.
Analysis: He could play as early as Wednesday, although we'd like to see him practice Tuesday before being ready to push him back into the active lineup since that date was previously considered a best-case scenario.
