From the Flyers official release, "The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that D Chris Pronger will undergo surgery on Tuesday, March 15 to repair a fracture in his right hand, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.
"Chris had a CT scan on his right hand on Sunday and a small fracture was discovered,” Holmgren said. “Our doctors believe surgery is the best route to take with the injury. Surgery will be done Tuesday morning in Cleveland by Dr. Tom Graham. Chris will be able to return to play in 3-4 weeks."
The Flyers' regular season schedule ends on April 9th, or roughly four weeks from this past Saturday. By the 3-4 week estimation he should be back for the playoffs, but not much earlier than that.
