Pronger Skates With The Team For First Time (Monday, September 19)

He is paired with Lilja.

VOORHEES, N.J. — Chris Pronger had been skating on his own for a couple weeks, but didn’t expect to feel well enough to skate with the team. It was in question whether he’d even be able to start the season on time.

But on Monday morning, Pronger briefly appeared on the ice with his teammates. The Flyers first group traditionally skates for about an hour and a half, between both rinks at the Skate Zone. Pronger’s appearance was roughly half an hour before the team switched sheets of ice.

While this is by no means a guarantee that he will be ready for the regular season, it’s a good sign that he was able to skate in drills with other players.

The captain noted that in his rehab, the first day of skating tends to feel OK, but it’s the subsequent days that tell a better story.

It is highly unlikely that the Flyers will use him in the preseason, unless his appearances become a regular occurrence over a few days.
