Report: Pronger set for tests, no skating, next week
Chris Pronger, who missed most of last season because of post-concussion syndrome, will reportedly visit the Flyers' training facility in Voorhees, N.J., next week for some testing.

Philadelphia Flyers captain Chris Pronger, who missed most of last season because of post-concussion syndrome, reportedly will visit the team's training facility in Voorhees, N.J., next week for some testing.

Philadelphia general manager Paul Holmgren told the Philadelphia Inquirer that the 37-year-old defenseman would not take the ice, however. According to Holmgren, Pronger, who hasn't played since last November, is still experiencing headaches.

In addition to post-concussion syndrome, Pronger also missed six games last season with an eye injury, and underwent left knee surgery in November 2011.

Pronger had a goal and 11 assists in 13 games in 2011-12. He has 157 goals and 541 assists in 1,167 career regular-season games spanning 18 seasons with Hartford, St. Louis, Edmonton, Anaheim and Philadelphia.

Pronger led the Anaheim Ducks to the 2007 Stanley Cup and won Olympic gold medals with Canada in 2002 and 2010. He signed a seven-year contract with Philadelphia in 2009.

Quote of the Day

It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal. It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."
