from Ray Parrillo of the Philadelphia Inquirer,
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren declined to reveal details of Pronger’s injury before Monday’s game at the Wells Fargo Center.
“There is nothing to talk about,” Holmgren said through a team spokesman.
It was unclear whether Pronger’s absence was related to the broken right hand that sidelined him for the final 16 regular-season games and the first five playoff games, or if he has suffered another injury.
Earlier Monday, Holmgren said Pronger was “OK” even though the defenseman didn’t take part in the morning skate. In the final minutes of the Flyers’ 7-3 loss to the Bruins Saturday in Game 1, Pronger went up the tunnel to the locker room rather than remain on the bench with his teammates, an indication that something was wrong.
There has been speculation by some media outlets that the 36-year-old Pronger is having back problems.
