Chris Pronger has been sidelined with post-concussion syndrome and an eye injury since late 2011 and it appears the ailments will keep the hulking defenseman from ever returning to NHL ice. But that doesn’t mean Pronger has completely stepped away from the game loves. The 38-year-old spent much of the 2012-13 season scouting defensemen for the Flyers.
THN’s Ken Campbell caught up with Pronger at the 2013 NHL draft in New Jersey to discuss his new role with the Flyers, his future in hockey when he does officially retire and his health.
