After missing the last week or so with a virus, Chris Pronger will have surgery on his knee and could be sidelined somewhere in the 4-weeks vicinity.
“The procedure will clean out some loose particles that have given Chris some problems over the last month or so,” Paul Holmgren said.
“We were hopeful that the time missed with a virus that Chris has
been fighting would settle things down in his knee but after an
examination yesterday, it was decided that the surgery is the way to go
at this time. We expect Chris will be back playing in 4 weeks,” Holmgren added.
That must be one pesky virus.
Very bad news for Flyers fans as the club has been dealing with a banged up defense.
