Biographical Info

Drafted second overall in 1993 by Hartford, he only lasted two seasons there before being traded to the St. Louis Blues. In St. Louis, his numbers began to expand on all fronts: points, plus/minus and PIMs. By 1997, he was the team captain. He was the youngest member of Canada’s men’s hockey team at the 1998 Nagano Olympics and finished with 46 points in 1999. His best year came in 2000 when Pronger finished the season with 62 points and a 52-plus rating. This earned him both the Norris and the Hart Trophies, making him the first player to do so since Bobby Orr. He played key roles in Edmonton’s run to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2006 and in Anaheim’s Stanley Cup win in 2007. He would also go on to captain the Philadelphia Flyers before concussion issues forced him to end his playing career in December of 2011. In addition to his role on the Canadian Olympic Team in Nagano, Pronger also played for Canada in the 2002, 2006 and 2010 Olympic Games winning Gold Medals in 2002 and 2010. Pronger currently works for the NHL in the Department of Player Safety.
