Pronger Undergoes Surgery; Optimistic for Training Camp

Updated: August 4, 2010 at 5:26 pm by Alexander Monaghan

According to Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly, Chris Pronger underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery July 27 to remove “loose bodies” from the area.

While Pronger and Paul Holmgren claim he will be ready for camp, a 35-year-old defenseman who plays a rugged style and just played around 100 games may take a bit more time.

Throughout his career, Pronger has been a minutes eater and remained relatively healthy. He has not missed a game since the 2007-2008 season and only once failed to suit up for at least half the season.

Feel free to draft him accordingly and expect a solid pile of points, PIM and an excellent +/- rating.
