Arthroscopic knee surgery successful for Pronger
Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last week and is expected to recuperate in time to participate in the team's training camp on Sept. 17.

Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren told CSNPhilly.com that Pronger "had some particles floating around in there that were taken out."

The team's orthopedic surgeon Peter DeLuca performed the surgery.

"It wasn't an issue," Holmgren said. "He's back in Canada right now visiting and will be back here (Aug. 9)."

Pronger led the Flyers in ice time (25:55) and plus-minus rating (plus-22) in 2009-10 and topped all Philadelphia defensemen with 10 goals and 55 points. He also chipped in with 5 power-play goals and 2 game-winning goals.

Additionally, Holmgren also confirmed that wing Daniel Carcillo, who signed a one-year deal to remain with the team on July 13, recently had successful abdominal and stomach surgery.

"He's doing fine already," Holmgren said. "There is nothing urgent there."
