Philadelphia Flyers assistant captain Chris Pronger will miss the rest of the season including the playoffs due to “Severe Post-Concussion Syndrome”.


Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren confirmed the injury Thursday…


“After consultation with respected concussion specialists Dr. Joseph Maroon and Dr. Micky Collins, it is the opinion of both Doctors that Chris is suffering from “Severe Post-Concussion Syndrome”. It is the recommendation of Doctors Maroon and Collins that Chris not return to play for the Philadelphia Flyers for the remainder of the 2011-12 season or playoffs.  Chris will continue to receive treatment and therapy with the hope that he can get better.”


In 13 games this season, Pronger was able to post 12 points (1 Goal, 11 Assists) in 13 games. He will also end the 2011-12 season with 10 Penalty Minutes, and 23 Shots On Goal.
