Chris Pronger Injury Update: Flyers Defenseman Has 'Good Days And Bad Days' According To GM Paul Holmgren

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren provided the media with an injury update on defenseman Chris Pronger on Monday. Pronger missed most of last season with post-concussion symptoms. According to Holmgren, the veteran is still struggling with headaches, and has been having "good days and bad days."

"He's probably living a fairly normal life, but he has headaches," Holmgren said. "He's probably not all that motivated some days."

Holmgren said that Pronger has been putting his years of experience in the NHL to other uses, watching player video and attending scouting meetings. Pronger at the very least could serve as a solid mentor to younger players if he his unable to return at the start of the 2012-13 regular season, much like Ian Laperriere did when concussion symptoms sidelined him late in his career. Pronger's primary objective remains to return to the ice, however.
