Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger injured his right foot Wednesday night against the Canadiens, but the team will wait until Friday for a clearer prognosis after initial tests on Thursday.
"During the second period of last night's game in Montreal, Chris Pronger sustained an injury to his right foot," Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said in a statement Thursday. "Chris was X-rayed today and also had a CT scan of his foot. He will be evaluated tomorrow morning by a foot and ankle specialist and at that time we will have a better idea of what we are dealing with."
Pronger, 36, hurt the foot in the second period against Montreal, left the game and did not return. He missed the opening two games of the season because of a surgically-repaired right knee.
UPDATE (1:45 pm): Confirming a Daily News report, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren released a statement today saying Chris Pronger had his right foot X-rayed and underwent a CT scan.
The Flyers have nothing to report at this point.
"Chris will be re-evaluated [Friday] morning by a foot and ankle specialist and at that time, we will have a better idea of what we are dealing with," Holmgren said.
